  1. Albaron scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    Immediately recognizable as Laddie through the light muff, the smoke hides the sherry influence well, but you notice the whisky but its youth, the smoke can not hide. But that does not really bother me. Still tasty.
    • Nose
      immediately smoke and cowshed, light muff and malty, a bit bitter, herbs, freshly baked caramel and some dark forest honey
    • Taste
      strong onset, a bit bitter and herbs, malty, dry smoke, some ashes in between always a little brown sugar, then cereal bowls
    • Finish
      There is still smoke here, then tannins from the young oak and some sherry

    OMG, a monster on the peat and smoke flavor. The nose will burn the hairs out. Lots of oak and vanilla as it tappers off toward the finish. Not much available on the shelves any more. Those of us who have it around still, enjoy it!

    The most complex and subtle nose I have ever seen. A superb bottle. What happiness.

      All the flavors of Islay are found in this whisky. Not heavy, very subtle, very chiseled. Peat, of course, but not only ... violet scent, dried flowers, salt, hint of wheat after 10 minutes.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Deliciously oily, quite salty, a hint of banana.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Intense but fairly short. Salt, peat, close to the nose but less complex.

  9. Achany scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    nice stuff!! strong peat and smoke at the beginning and to the end more and more vanilla and oak. Giving it some time during nosing and drinking always helps a lot for me with Bruichladdich

    "The second edition of Bruichladdich`s 3D series, Moine Mhor is Gaelic

    for `big peat`. As with the other bottlings in the 3D range, this has

    been vatted from three different types of Bruichladdich spirit, ranging

    from older, lightly-peated Bruichladdich distilled before Jim McEwan

    & Co. took over the distillery, through to young, heavily peated

    whisky that distilled for the Port Charlotte bottling s."
