Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: A hint of sea spray, but rich and plush, with punchy fruit and floral aromas.
Palate: Enticing mix of creaminess and salinity – rich and refreshing.
Finish: Nice balance between the sprightly fruit and tangy sea-spray elements.

Fantastic. I find it has a wonderful sweet toffee smell to it and does have a very so slight smoaky tang to it in my pallet. Very very smooth!
I'd seen some pretty poor reviews of this whisky and that along with the fairly steep pricetag put me off buying a bottle. However, I saw a bottle behind the bar when up visiting Orkney and thought I'd order a dram to try for myself. I ended up being pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it far more than any of the other three whiskies I tried that night. A pleasant whisky and very drinkable. Still maybe slightly expensive for what it is but I will be ordering a bottle off the back of the sample I tried.
An incredibly dram, soft yet fiesty! Light, sweet, vanilla with a subtle nutty/salty finish.
I agree,it needs a little drop of water to release its fruity flavours.It is a decent drop.
I tried this firstly without adding water, and got that astringent whack of new oak, furniture polish and little else... you can tell it's a youngster. But with some water, it thankfully softens. It still tastes young, but the stewed apple taste (which in older Bruichladdich's I've tasted grows into gorgeous toffee-apple flavours), starts to come out. It's also quite dry (that'll be the oak tannins again). It's pleasant but not complex, and not a star.
Absolutely lovely. A true classic scotch. This is how it should be done. Delightful !
