3 Cadenhead's bottles, from varying series - all not cheap, all supposedly good - what will the verdict be?

#189 Bruichladdich 24yo Cads | SSWC review 83c
Creamy like a grain. Farmyard. Oranges. Lime fumes. Ooo creamy. Sauternes. Strawberries and cream flavoured boiled sweets. Licorice, poppers, lemons, old spice, vanilla rooibos, beetroot, peardrops, tangerine from a christmas stocking.
More creaminess. Shortbread. Oh yes, a classic HP. Subtle background of fruit. Exotic fruits! MANGO! PASSIONFRUIT! A bit sickly. Agree with passion fruit but killed by cream. Tiny bit of fizz. Chlorine in the eyes. Chlorine in the eyes. Grapeskin (yeasty and dry), strawberry milkshake, tangfastics, hall's blackcurrant soothers, the taste of chlorine in your eyes, the taste of bile after you've thrown up, bacon.

Herby. Really good.
Sorry about the incorrect picture. Classic HP sauce. Disappointing. an odd mix of creamy and astringent, absolutely horrible til the aftertaste (and drinkable) .
