    Never tried a Bruichladdich before, but as a big fan of Ardberg and Islay whiskey, thought I’d give it a go. Great introduction to the brand, not as peaty as my usual dram, but right up there for taste and quality! Very interesting and worth the value, will be buying a bottle and look forward to introducing myself to other members of the Bruichladdich clan in the near future...

    Probably the best whisky I have ever tasted, and I have tasted a few!

    This is a high quality dram, bottled at a Bruichladdich's tradmark high alcohol content. However there is something bitter about the finish that means it is less favoured in our household. Some of the newer expressions, notably the unpeated "Scottish Barley", bottled at 50%, beat it hands down.

    I am new to Scotch but I find this is nice whisky. I have had it on the rocks and neat. I prefer it neat overall.

    Agree with Tom, best dram in a long time! Big fan of Islay Malts in general, and 'Rocks' is the first i've tried from this distillery. I really like the effect from the red wine casks, both in the colour and taste. One of the most exciting, interesting whiskies i've tried so far! Looking forward to more from Bruichladdich.

    Tried this excellent dram for the first time this week..............a.stonishing !! Best I have drank in a long time

    Actually, it was designed to be "very much as an early evening, long whisky on the rocks," aimed at the overseas market as stated by then master distiller Jim McEwan in Whisky Dream Waking A Giant. So while the branding may refer to the Geology, rocks were intended - (even if it tastes great as it) And btw - the red wine hints are due to a transfer to Syrah casks.

    Very pleased with this one. I didn't have it with rocks but just a teaspoon of water. It says on the bottle it is unpeated, but it is lightly peated and all the better for it. On the nose, it is fresh and coastal, another reviewer described it in these terms and I'd say that is spot on. On tasting, I get very subtle peat and smoke, brineyness and a hint of red wine. I got this for 27 quid and I am very happy with my purchase.

    Good whisky but why so many daft names from this distillery??

  • Fra N. 20 February 2012

    Fruity (red small berries, strawberries, pear), saline, smooth ... great value for your buck.

    Bloody brilliant whisky..nuff said

    been drinking Islay whiskies for years and thought the Islay full cask was a find until I was given a bottle of the Rocks. Lovely, smooth and the various flavour hints send the taste buds into heaven.

  • Mike Barber 23 May 2011

    On a Youtube video promoting this product Jim McEwan says he did name this whisky Rocks to encourage consumers to drink it with ice. It's a vatting of 5, 6, and 7 year old bourbon cask whisky finished in red wine casks for 9 months.

  • Ken Barlow 11 February 2011

    The Rocks in the name refers to the geology of the island. You don't put ice in it any more than you'd put Coke in it.

    nice with no peaty scent

  • McGinger 16 August 2010

    I only take my dram with a dod-ey-ice and this is the perfect accompaniment. Simply splendid.

  • Anonymous 24 May 2010

    Very nice. Recommended by a liquor store owner over more expensive alternatives. He claimed it was best bang for the buck, and as far as I can tell he was most certainly right.Very fruity - nice coastal feel.

  • S.P.Badger (Bristol) 20 April 2010

    Just replaced the last bottle,a great addition to my whisky collection,it has everthing you would expect from a Islay malt,smoke peat and it has a subtle combination of fruit flavours which adds to a wonderful finish.Excellent malt.

  • rico 23 November 2009

    A very nice dram - on the palate there's a juicy grapefruit with an oily, very smooth finish.

  • trebor 20 November 2009

    One of the few malts which has a tinge of pink when held to the light! Having tried other more mature Laddies I was a bit unsure about buying this one. Pleasantly surprised by a young but very smooth malt. Has touches of strawberry - pear and red wine. Don't mistake this for a typical Islay whisky though!
