PLOWED Tom, aka Whisky Hill. Good to see you at one of these tastings again Ryan. I always enjoy your notes.

I'd like to thank everyone that came out (or will in the near future) and participated. Thanks a bunch.

Lockejn, I've always found the Rocks to be very fruity (reminding me of new make) - lots of green apples, pears, etc.

Bruichladdich 'Peat' 46%

Glass: SMWS

Nose: Light on the nose, some salts with a hint of smoke.

Palate: A bit thin overall with more iodine/salty notes.

Finish: Short to medium finish with some fruity notes lingering and a bit of smoke towards the very end.

Comment: Just an 'ok' dram for me, not what I had expected it to be. It's just an average dram IMO, nothing extraordinary that's for sure.

I seem to have missed this one too, but as Ryan is keeping it going I'll have a rake around and see if I can find anything to add tomorrow.
