Nose of vanilla beans and hay. Dry palate with a light fruity iced tea. Had this after a number of darker/deeped sherried Islays and it was refreshing....I enjoyed it but still not really great by any means. Finish was short.
N: A bit over-ripe and earthy. P: Fruity and spicy. F: Short and sweet. A reasonably enjoyable whisky, but lacks character. The low to moderately priced Bruichladdich offerings are all good, but in my experience so far, never great. Worth trying, but don't buy the bottle to do it.
Nose: ooh, fig newtons, passover jelly candies, dark fruit punch. Trace of sulfur. Palate: see nose. Really tasty and deeply figgy, dark red fruit flavors, toffee, and Turkish Delights (which I only know the taste of because so many Brit/Euro whisky reviewers commonly mention them; thus I admittedly sought them out). Sulfur hints in the background. Quite sweet and quite enjoyable. Finish is long.
Mildly complex and full of nice rich ruby-red fruits and toffee candy flavors. The closest thing to a B+ without being one. Hits my sweet tooth. B/B+
