What's in a name? Bruichladdich 16 Year Old Bourbon Cask whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Bruichladdich 16 Year Old Bourbon Cask whiskey, rather than 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'.
