Tasting Notes: Bruichladdich The Laddie Ten

I opened a bottle of Laddie Ten last spring, and I had a dram here and a dram there, always thinking, "I need to sit down with a pencil and make some tasting notes."

Then, the other night, this happened:


So, um...

Nose: Whiskey.

Palate: Like malted barley was packed away in wood for ten years. No cotton candy or braised meats at all.

Finish: More whiskey -- and then, out of nowhere, chili pepper. (And when I say "finish," I mean "finish the bottle," because I have no recollection of that chili in any previous glass, even the one I had about two weeks earlier.)
