This was one of the first Bruichladdichs i've tasted. back than i was not aware of the more flowery sweet noses the laddie is known for, and it took me by surprise.

the nose is indeed sweet, like a smoky lolipop, flowers and heather galore.

the palate is again, very slightly peaty. it's as if the peat is underneath, but is not surfacing up. quite nicely, but not enough.

i can think of some dishes where adding a bit of this nectar can make even better. but don't get me wrong, this is a fine dram.

the finish is medium, with biscuity notes, and tiny wafts of peat under your tongue.

not a very complex dram, but also a fairly cheap laddie, good entry level value.

a fine dram, yet not a great one.
