Bruichladdich Waves 7 Year Old
A wee trip to Linlithgow a week or so back and we found ourselves, as normal in Linlithgow, having a nosey in Ellies Cellar, a fantastic Off Licence selling a range of wines, beers, ciders and spirits and amongst that a really good selection of whiskies.
I always have a nosey through the miniatures to see if there is anything exciting and came across this Bruichladdich Waves, i'm always interested in Bruichladdich bottlings so i just had to give it a try.
Very light touches of smoke are my first impression, gentle peatyness, sweet maltyness and there's something that i can't put my finger on that i feel is consistent with the character of Bruichladdich from the other expressions i've tried. It's a sweet maltyness almost like digestive biscuits and a touch of honey and nutmeg, some spicyness that just tickles your nostrils after a while.
Touches of smoke with masses of wheat and touches of sweetness, nutmeg and allspice with a splash of honey.
Hugely powerful with touches of smoke
