I am writing this review from my notes. Thanks to @ Cricklewood for this generous sample.

Nose: Peat, vanilla, straw, salt, sage, mint and the typical baby vomit (sour lactose). A very clean Bruichladdich nose. Not the more complex but of high quality.

Palate: salt, white pepper, peat, smoke, chocolate mixed with fish sauce and star anise. Sweet

Finish: Salt, sweet and everything I have on the palate that lingered away.

Balance: Very good

This was my first PC and I was expecting more peat but it is a typical Bruichladdich with medium complexity and very clean flavors. Maybe there is more salt than usual. I really like that the herbal side of Bruichladdich is there without any funkymess. Although very good, there is no wow factor for me, that is why it can not reach the 90 mark, but it is close.

@Robert99, I'm enjoying this bottle as it develops. It's definitely doesn't have any huge surprises, it's a very solid vatting of different types of casks and everything is well balanced. I think it's my favourite PC thus far.
