Interesting fact… Bruichladdich 12 Year Old (2nd Edition) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Bruichladdich 12 Year Old (2nd Edition) whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Gentle peat, quite coastal, light and fruity.
Palate: Slight burn, despite the low strength. Malty and salty, rather astringent.
Finish: Oak, tannic, quite sappy.
I truly love the weight of this scotch and the lovely vanilla tones. The finish lasts and leaves you wanting more. This was a shining star on a day where I tasted several scotches including Blue Label.
