Nose: Fruity nose of conference pear, honeydew melon and red apple, combined with sweet vanilla and the faintest hint of salinity.
Palate: Semi-luscious texture with the fruits from the nose joined by papaya and guava, the vanilla from the oak slightly more noticeable but without being overpowering and a mouth-watering salinity.
Finish: The tropical fruit flavours slowly fade to leave a delicious mixture of salty vanilla.
Comment: The perfect example that Islay whisky doesn’t have to be peaty. This does as it says on the bottle, showcasing the house style (as they would say in Champagne) of the distillery.

this was my first experience of Bruichladdich, I first tried it 2/3 years ago and ever since then Bruichladdich has been one of my favorite distilleries, the only other whisky I like more than Bruichladdich is Ardbeg, and I only like it a wee bit more than Bruichladdich.

I swear they blended some of their Rocks mix, and some Ardbeg 10 to make this whiskey. It's amazingly easy to drink, smoky with a sugary syrup and licorice prominence.
