The last (but not least) of the Elements in this batch is yet another first, Ln1. Like the Ma1, this is just another line of peated whiskies from Bruichladdich. As you well know Bruichladdich bottle a few lines of whiskies: Starting from the ‘unpeated’ Bruichladdich , the heavily peated ‘Port Charlotte’ line (~40 ppm) , and the Ultra peated Octomore (over 100 ppm) The Lochindaal is something in the middle peated to ~50 ppm, so essentially we’re talking a peatier Port Charlotte , if you may. I love me some peat from time to time, so let’s get sniffing:
Nose : certainly does feel like it’s been distilled in Bruichladdich. That lactic hint is here and it’s very pronounced, I quite like it. Mint and anti cold lozenges as well as nicely done peat reek, and quite a few farmy notes, that are balanced by a sweet golden syrup like quality. It opens nicely with water.
