Yeast, a little plastic maybe..

Taste

Powerful taste, from the 50+%. More yeast, and some wood.

Finish

Medium long finish, with a hint of smoke. And a weird sour taste...

Comments

This is not my kind of tea...

Nose

Mellow. The first impression includes malt, limes and plastic. Then there is wet grass, yeast and bread. Quite nice if you forget about the plastic.

Taste

Warming. Malty, liquorice as well as some lime zest.

Finish

Medium long and malty. Becoming dryer and dryer with an unpleasant aftertaste.

Comments

Not bad but I wished Jim McEwan would have chosen a better cask for the special event of Feis Ile 2009 instead of trying to get rid of some older stuff. I am thinking about a whisky that attracts people to Bruichladdich and is an indication of what can be expected in the near future ... for example a Port Charlotte similar to the Malts of Scotland ;)
