This is first in our new peat tasting.

Tony says: Bruichladdich peat is possibly the most accessible whisky in the pack. Peated at 35 ppm, it is a much sweater, softer, earthier dram than the traditional smoky Islay taste profile. Nevertheless this is a smooth and highly quaffable whisky and if I wanted someone to figure out what peat was and whether they like it, this is a good intro.

Dominic’s Tasting Notes: Nose: Rich. The seashore, a barbeque, peat, burned fish. Taste: Sweet pear and apricot juice in gentle, wispy smoke. A rugged peat carpet. Beautifully balanced.

Pat's Tasting Notes: Nose: Soft and squelchy peat with effervescent yellow fruits. Taste: Bitter-Sweet. Initially light and fruity, but peat and bitter oak explode onto the palate.

Scores a combination of WTC tasters.
