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.

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 !
