Nose: Baked apples and hints of green pears. Floral top notes mixed with swirls of vanilla.  Medium sweet. A touch of mint and cut grass. It comes across as light and elegant. Develops nicely in the glass, and becomes richer and more rounded.

Taste: Rich and full-bodied. Dry-ish at first. Malty, with apples and oaky notes (wet planks). Cut grass and light notes of floral honey.

Finish: Medium long finish. Mild caramel, honey and vanilla. Oaky and dry-ish. Green all the way - floral with herbs and grass.

Comments: A typical Bruichladdich - well-crafted with lots of flavours.
