Bruichladdich and bourbon is so obviously such a wonderfully synergistic combination that it makes you question why, given their passion for cask enhancement, the boys from the Rinns haven't made more of their spirit's obvious love of American oak in the past.
This 16 year old spends most of its life maturing in former Jim Beam casks, before being finished in premium Buffalo Trace oak. The result is a thick, syrupy expression bursting with fruit, cream and vanilla. There's just enough spice and complexity on the palate to protect the experience from one-note simplicity, while the finish is sweet, fresh and long, with just a hint of new-mowed grass and sea air.
A delightful 'Laddie that's easy-drinking, unashamedly pleasing and decidedly morish.
