This is the replacement that came last year for the "An Turas Mor" bottling, so in other words Bruichladdich's new NAS peaty bottling. An Turas Mor was, considering everything, a very decent offering so it bodes well for the replacement.

(Sidenote: These tasting notes are from August 2012)

Nose: Atypical Bruichladdich cereal&vegetal creamy-ness meeting your nose. This is then followed by damp&earthy peat in tandem with fresh citrus and baking spices. The cinnamon asserting itself especially, alongside some nutmeg.

Palate: Thick creamy barley/cereal sugars arrive with a very damp & dense peat with smoke all around the edges. A slight vegetal bitterness takes hold off the peat to continue the developpement. The whisky revolves then to a cereal sweetness again now expanding to all-spice, cinnamon and nutmeg. The finish can only be described as lemon pie, with cream and peat on the side.

If the An Turas Mor was a tad reminiscient of Laphroaig, this bottling comes very close to the Ardbeg Ten. So if you are looking for a similar-but-different whisky to the Ardbeg 10 for a tad cheaper, this is it! Just a Yummy dram! Yes with a capital Y!
