Tasting Notes

"Bruichladdich's newest Islay Barley release is made for Islay whisky lovers: It's a bombshell of peat smoke and maritime brininess. Behind that are milder notes of toffee, seaweed, and light honey. It's a wonderful expression of the island and smoky Scotch drinkers will find a lot to enjoy in this bottle."
