  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, creamy lemon, velvety, and light peat ... then with a little airing the medicinal side comes with oranges and some spices, it's fresh, emergency room washed!
    • Nose
      peat, lemon, damp wood, a little minty, back of cold ash and spices on white pepper.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Good, delicious, full-bodied to tasty, to lengths better than the 1st PC10, with which I could do nothing. 55 € I would find cheap, the current 70 € are very borderline, more I would not spend.
    • Nose
      pure: starts very dry, dusty, a bit ashy, then a splash of lemon and a salty breeze, honey later, orange, smoked bacon, a little farm, Rde ... who can breathe quietly 'a while a drop of water tickles a bit more orange, but does not really make the whisky any better, just a little thinner, cooler - you can leave it
    • Taste
      smoky-sweet, fat, full-bodied - orange marmalade, milk chocolate, honey, malt, bacon, burnt cake, with a little water (to 40-45%) is very tasty, but the bitterness comes out a bit stronger
    • Finish
      medium to long, first syrupy, then quite bitter (some plastic), then bacon, salt, pepper

    I was never a big fan of peated Bruichladdichs, and sadly I'm not over the moon for this one either. It's just the whiffs of sour margarine and sick that get me. The palate is better than the nose, but not much is added. Disappointed!

    (Please note that I opened the bottle not long before writing this, so it might improve with some time. Oxygen didn't do it any favours in the glass, though.)

    Edit: Leaving the bottle for a couple of weeks did a lot. The sour margarine was toned down, which let the fruitiness of the spirit and the smoked bacon malt shine. I originally scored it as 80, which at the time seemed a tad too generous, but now needs to be increased.

    Pretty good. Good value purchase by my brother that lent me his bottle to try.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A very light nose with sweet smoky ash, vanilla, caramel.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Smooth sweet smoky ash, infused with apricots and other light fruits.
    • Finish
      86 86
      A little spicy, peaty, very light medicinal with bit of heat, but no bitterness or off notes.

  6. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It’s a delicate peaty with light sweetness. It starts with light peated aroma and moves to rottenness of ripe fruits, stewed apples, dry hay and allspices. The palate is peaty, sweet and slightly dry with notes of sweet fruits, oak and dry hay. The finish is middle, peaty, dry and spicy with notes of sweet fruits and wet wood. It has good balance between peatness and sweetness.

  7. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Rich, farmy peat. Dark honey, ripe white fruit, oak.
    • Taste
      Sweet and peaty arrival. Rich and flavourful. Ripe fruit, dark honey, farmy peat, spice, a wisp of smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium. Sweet smoke, then lingering smoke and spice.

  9. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Begins beautifully "farm-like" with hay, earthy tones, silo and freshly strewed stables before salty, as well as sweet flavors follow. Grape marc, seaweed crackers, smoked malt and campfire. Beautifully put together.
    • Taste
      Soft and voluptuous at the start. Again farm-like after rainy hay and raw wool, but also after gooseberry and citrus zests. Over time, the saltiness gains while in the background a nice smokiness persists. Later also a sourish fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Long, complex and aromatic. Again "farm-like" but also with beautiful smoke flavors and a hint of apple.
