Fruit is the common thread to this lightly peated whisky. Red fruit, that is. Red raspberry, red currant, red seedless grape, strawberry, and red apple. A gentle sweetness (creamy vanilla, light molasses) balances all this fruit. Not overly contemplative, but delightful. This is definitely not the same Rocks I reviewed two years ago. I still have my sample and compared it to this new expression. This new one is richer, darker in color, and tastes more mature. It’s an improved version, and my rating reflects this.

“A real classic from Bruichladdich. If you don’t like this you don’t like whisky.”This dram has a white-like color.
Nose (92): inexistent. sweet, fruity, plums, strawberries, wood, salt, peat, honey, vanilla, biscuit. First nosing data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
Taste (96): . sweet, peat, hot, fruity, wood, biscuit, a little earthy. Bouquet data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
Finish (88): no finish. sweet, fruit, wood, honey, peat. Finish length is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
These bottles have been chosen over others because their nose, taste and finish are more similar to Bruichladdich Rocks than the rest. Go to Whisky-o-matic page to fine tuning other settings.
