Bruichladdich doesn’t crank up the peat levels very often, but here’s an example of what happens when it does. The nose is smoky and phenolic. The taste is peaty and peppery, and lingers before fading slowly to a smoky and long finish. It’s 1-dimensional, but if you like smoky whiskies, you’ll love this one.
