A 2008 release from the Bruichladdich distillery and a light single malt. The name Waves suggests the notes of crisp, fresh fruits and a touch of light spice with a touch of typical 'Laddie coastal tones.
Nose: Light, fresh. Perfumed, stemmy, floral. Dry grass, apples, slightly coastal.
Palate: Medium body, balanced. Dried seaweed, sweet barley, toffee, vanilla, honey freshly sliced oranges, fruit salad, a touch of smoke - a lot going on!
Finish: Long, fruity and spiced.

How arrogant to claim its not for the uneducated palate, everyone's palate is different, only a complete snob would turn his nose up at this offering. I personally love it and would recommend it to anyone. Jim Murray rated it 85/100!

I'm sorry for posting this on the reviews, but please ignore any posts such as the post entitled "not for an educated palate"; give it a poor rating if you don't like it and a good rating if you enjoy it - I have whishies ranging from £30 to over £200, blends, vatted malts, single malts, ryes, corn, grain, single barrels, and more regions than I can name. Price, age, region, type and complexity should be ignored as fancies of your mind and not your heart. Over-complication can kill the enjoyment as much as one-dimensionality. Anyone who belittles another's taste is only trying to compensate for other failings in life by trying to make out that they are superior and everyone else is inferior. Even Jim Murray admits to a liking for many simple style whiskers.

Clearly aimed at a younger audience and none the worse for that. A 'designer' whisky that offers both style and some substance. Will appeal to women too, I would think. Light, easy drinking. 7/10.
A nice smell of sea air, that's about everything positive there is to say about this astoundingly bland bottling.

Just glad I'm not smart enough not to enjoy this ;)

Indeed, this is one of my favourites. Less sweet than most with a nice salty kick that reminds me of eating rock oysters. Thus how happy I am that I'm not educated enough in whisky to dislike waves.

Count me among the uneducated, I love Waves! The seaweed coastal thing is really going on in this Scotch. Complex.

This offering is fine for the majority of whisky drinkers as they do not have such an educated palate as we more skilled drammers. It is acceptable for them but not for we who know better.James Saxon.

Once the bottle is open, there is no need for the cap. delightfully tasteful and smooth, a favourite tipple.
