I ordered this bottle from KLwines because the Port Charlotte 10 was out.
Nose: Hint of Buttery Lemon Scones, peaty, nutty, dash of white pepper, red chili, iodine notes, slightly herbal like The Laddie 10
Palate: First taste is the peat and maritime notes, buttery lemon scones, nutty, bitter-sweet notes move throughout the dram, slightly herbal, touch of cocoa, dash of pepper and crushed chili.
Finish: The peat is more noticeable now, with graphite coming to the fore and the peat retreating slightly, to be taken over by the herbal notes and peanuts.
An odd Islay to be sure, do i love it yes it is refreshingly different. The peat is not the key flavor note of the dram instead you get the perfect marriage of Bruichladdich and peat. Reminds me of the time I added 2 teaspoons of Ardbeg to Bruichladdich 10.
