Bruichladdich 3D3 is named for the usage of 3 Warehouses, 3 Vintages and 3 Peating levels which are vatted together to create this very interesting expression. The 3D3 contains “ordinary” Bruichladdich (which is not peated) , Port Charlotte (peated to 40 ppm), and Octomore (peated to 80.5 ppm) [not the 1.1 Octomore, but the first one which was less peaty
Gal Granov (86)
Color: Pale gold
Nose: It’s a true laddie in nature when it comes to the fruitiness, but all this is layered below a nice peaty cover. It reminds me quite a bit the Octomore 2.1 nose. I like it.
Mouth : Ashe, Big Peat, but sweeter notes are abundant. You get a very delicious sort of “peaty” lollipop feeling, which is quite interesting. It’s very strong, and peppery.
Finish : Peppery, Ashy, quite long and enjoyable.
Summing it up :
While not Enormously complex, it’s very enjoyable and not as flat as can be expected. The sweet-peat-fruit mélange does the work. It’s a sort of in your face! Malt, I’d recommend it to peat lovers especially and those who like a very strong impact of coal, smoke, and ash in their face, nose and throat. It’s not an Octomore, or a supernova, but it’s darn peaty and wild, and you get a chance to sample some PC, Octomore and laddie in one.
Norrie, this wee dram is in your honor!
