    On first opening I thought I had stumbled into a 1950s operating theatre that had been chemically debugged, twice!!, by over zealous orderlies. There was definitely the thought that too deep a nose-full would knock me into unconsciousness deep enough for a full gastrectomy. However, I took the plunge but only half finished my dram and left the glass on my study desk only to discover it again two days later. In that time a miracle had happened - not water into wine but industrial antiseptic into an exceptionally delicious whisky: mellow and light as a fairy's kiss. To my mind this simply shows that you distillery guys are too impatient and over-fuelled on testosterone. It is no good having to pour a dram a day or two before consumption so please, please, please, you Bruich boys, age it longer in cask and handle it with kid gloves ... then you will get many more people coming back for more.

    A very nice Islay whisky with some gentle smoke. It would be amazing if they were able to age this for another 8 to 10 years. We have to support the distillers like them that are doing things the right way until they are able to age their stocks for longer! N: Lemon and lime sherbet with smoky bonfire and black pepper. Vanilla, unbaked sugar cookies, salt spray, paprika, eucalyptus, and almonds Floral daiseys and buttercups, apple juice, white chocolate, icing sugar, slight red wine tannins, and barley sugar P: Lemon lime oakiness, white pepper, with slight vanilla Almonds, unbaked salted sugar cookies, slight bitter white chocolate, spicy cloves Mild bonfire smoke, sackcloth, apple juice, salted butterscotch donut custard.

    Really good single malt for being a young whisky. Bruichladdich and Port Charlotte are only going to get better as the distillery is able to age their range. Slainte!

    Bought a bottle this week like it a lot. That's about as complicated as my reviews get

    Pineapple and antiseptic on the nose. Oily and fragrant, floral on palate. Finish is fiery, fierce and fairly long with cigar box and tar in the aftertaste. Very enjoyable, if unbalanced, nor overly peaty.

    This has become my favourite whisky suitably satisfying and complex and enjoyable and if I am recommending a whisky to anyone I tend to list this as a must try

    Legs slow to run, viscous, rich in barley oil. Not too unlike Ardbeg 10, but not as smokey or citrusy. Also similarities with Ledaig 10. Peat reek is fairly strong, unmistakenly Heaviky peated. High ppm comparable to Lagavulin imo. Malty and fruity. Ash from cask or feints quite strong on the nose. Cereal, Leather and mushroom, phenols, popcorn, rubber, inside of a tea pot, all from the feints in the spirit. Slight vanilla and caramel, but not a lot of wood spice from lignins or lactone from the cask, suggesting a second or third refill American White Oak. Palate salty as expected from an ISLAY, distinctly oily, mouth filling, cinnamon ginger and nutmeg detectable in palate and finish, which is medium to long. A good alternative to Ardbeg, but not as fruity, as Ardbeg has very short foreshots only 10 mins. Guaiacols rather than medicinal or antiseptic Cresols suggest a lower combustion temperature of the peat.

    The sweetness of the barley nicely offset with a good punchy finish. An enjoyable Islay whisky. I would buy again.

    A young firery spirit from which the peatyness escaped during the voyage to Oregon, USA.

    Had this at the distillery. It was slightly better than the PC "Islay Barley" to my taste. Halfway between Laphroaig & Lagavulin tastewise.

    A very enjoyable whiskey that was enjoyed by both my wife and I (who often have differing tastes on such matters)!
