Interesting fact… Bruichladdich 16 Year Old Bourbon Cask whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Bruichladdich 16 Year Old Bourbon Cask whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Fresh and fruity. Soft vanilla, stone fruit. Peppery, oaky.
Palate: Estery, vanilla, spice. Apples, pears.
Finish: Long, crisp finish, fruit.
This is a wonderful bottling- bursting with flavour and a great balance of oak and malt. Please stop the ludicrous marketing ploys and concentrate on quality of this kind. Bruichladdich does not have to kill good malts with awful 'finishes'.
