Bruichladdich 12 year old (2nd Edition), 46%

Price: $60 Issue: Summer 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

A replacement to the original 10 year old, which is now off the market. A clean, straightforward dram with a lightness and freshness which is very inviting. Notes of vanilla cream, light caramel, tropical fruit (coconut, pineapple), clementine, pear, and a hint of currant. Appetizing, subtly briny finish.
