Tasted with 5 other Bruichladdich: Bere Barley 2008 (84 pts.), Bere Barley 2010 (82), Elements of Islay Br5 (84), 12yo 2004 "A Dream of Scotland (82), and LaddieMP4 11yo (83).
Thanks to member GIORGOS for the sample!
That faint saltiness again, with added faint coffee notes and dried prunes from the sherry cask, along with a side of watermelons when given a bit of H2O. It tends a bit toward metallic every now and then.
'Laddie distillate, plus echoes of Mars bars and barleywine. Some coffee grounds come out with water. It's not particularly complex, but certainly a welcome change after tasting 5 ex-bourbon Laddies.
Medium length, with Marabou chocolate and brown sugar.
