What's in a name? Bruichladdich 14 Year Old 1994 Kosher Wine Finish whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Bruichladdich 14 Year Old 1994 Kosher Wine Finish whiskey, rather than whisky.
Having tried this after a recent visit to the Bruichladdich Distillery I feel very grateful that the Bruichladdich team were not able to buy their first choice Distillery Ardbeg. I shudder to think what the marketing team would have done with the incomparable Ardbeg. This really is a very poor malt once again dressed up absurdly.

Completely agree with the above comments.So many distilleries disguise average malts with fancy finishes. Bruichladdich may well be achieving good sales but they are not doing the Islay tradition or experience any favours!

Honestly how far can the marketing team at Bruichladdich go! Yet another very ordinary offering dressed up to disguise the blandness. Now they even bring religion into the marketing. Thank goodness for Laphroaig, Ardbeg and Lagavulin the true taste of Islay!
