Bruichladdich Waves

Bruichladdich Waves Bottling Note

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

User Reviews of the Bruichladdich Waves

Good Stuff IMO

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!

Not tasted it, but please ignore whisky snobbery

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.

Probably not aimed at the pompous end of the market

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.

Not much to praise here.

A nice smell of sea air, that's about everything positive there is to say about this astoundingly bland bottling.

We don't need no education

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

Thank goodness for my lack of education

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.

Great Islay Scotch!

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

Not For An Educated Palate!

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.

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