Tasting Notes by Rocky
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.

I have not tried any unpeated Scotch from Islay other than this, but I have to say this was terrible.
Understated, unassuming, the pallet speaks volumes. Add a drop or two of water and the aroma to the nose explodes. Barley soft, smooth silky, slightly oily to the to taste, then after you swallow, the richness explodes and lingers with all the flavours of smokiness and peat. Think Jameson to the nose, Lagavulin to the taste, just more intense. This is an underrated whiskey, definitely a good buy.
Excellent. Thought ' Nae Peat , Nae Good' but was wrong. Recommended.
Apples, pear, pineapples, cinnamon, vanilla with a hint of salt. But the taste doesn't seem to live up to the aroma: mainly pepper and fruits, and fades quite quickly.
What a fantastic dram, easy on the nose and superb on the palette. You have to have great control when drinking on a quiet balmy evening otherwise it won''t be long before you are ordering another bottle.
Just finished my first bottle of this and so pleased to see that it's still available - an absolutely essential Islay, so delicious, complex yet pure, savoury-sweet. Fabulous bargain for the price, putting in an order for my second while it's still available!
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.
