Bruichladdich 3D3 Norrie Campbell Tribute

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 46%
Score: 91 points

This limited release honors the legendary Islay peat cutter Norrie Campbell, who died in 2006, and is a vatting of the distillery’s Bruichladdich, Octomore, and Port Charlotte malts. The nose is subtly peaty with heather and tobacco notes. The peat and smoke really come into play on the taste, with an intense smokiness reminiscent of Norrie himself. The peat and smoke fade to reveal a slightly citrus note with hints of seaweed and brine. The finish is fudge and dark chocolate with a hint of smoke.
