A replacement for the highly successful '3D' series, Bruichladdich Peat apparently 'does what it says on the tin' with phenol levels of 35ppm. No age statement, but it is cheaper than the old 3D releases and, shockingly, has escaped from the the distillery without being finished. Doubly unique 'Laddie!
love this, was lucky enough to go to the distillary in May!!!

tastes far too young

I am impressed. This is one of the nicer dams I've tasted. I am not going to forgo my Lapgroaig nor am I going to compare the two as that wouldn't be fair to either whisky's expression. As a peaty scotch goes, Bruichladdich Peat is unique, tasty and packs quite a mellow punch.

A very intense peat flavor, maybe too intense. They say that they have excluded those medicinal tones characterised to Islay malts, but I don't think that was a wise decision. I think this is some kind of experiment.A little bit artificial palate, not very complex comparing to other Islay malts. Nice try, but Laddie Waves is much, MUCH more interesting malt.

Was abit suprised to read these statements as i find it to be a rather splendid product of Islay. Might be right about a certain lack of peat in comparison of other Islay whiskeys but the strong ''furry'' if not even ''muddy'' taste of dirty rain in combination with the peat it has makes it well worth tastig if you ask me :P

Compared to other Islays I felt that this was too crude, strong, and brutal... ashtray meets coal and not much else. But then I went against all the rules and added some ice, which improved this juice considerably. Try it!

Just bought this botltle last week, Enjoying it right now. It isn't as peaty as I expected indeed. But still a fine dram tough.

I just bought my second bottle of this nectar.Smoke and peat are in almost perfect combination for my taste.I could compare this with Laproaigh Quarter Cask... My another favourite.

Not quite what I expected as I was thinking along the lines of Laphroig, Ardbeg etc in terms of peatiness after reading the label. However it tastes nothing like these - I'm no expert but in my opinion the peatiness is there as promised but in an unusual form, unaccompanied by the "medicinal", almost TCP like, tones of the aforementioned competitors.The result is an exceptional whisky, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Probably the best I have ever tasted.

A little bit disappointing. Not as peaty as I expected.It is a fine whisky though!

i just bought one bottle and peat was in the nose clear, in the taste little less but in my mouth just perfect...

Sorry but I can not find any peat in this whisky, a littel bit in the nose but not in the taste. I was so glad about this whisky that I bought 3 bottles but I am absolutly disapointed
