N: Almost sherry-like quality up front; lightly spicy. Very spirity despite the ABV, just surprisingly sharp, big and bold. Some brine and toffee.
P: Quite hot even at 46%; medium mouthfeel. Light vanilla sweetess, gets hotter but has no nuance to it. Kind of a stewed vegetable body as well.
F: Big alcohol kick with vanilla, medium wood, and a bourbon-like caramel sweetness.
A little water settles this down, but this is definitely one of the more forgettable Bruichladdich finished whisky experiments. This, like some of those early ones, seems a lot hotter than it should be.
