I had tasted its sibling Redder Still straight from the cask in the warehouse at Bruichladdich and was blown away by its depth and complexity.

I was therefore very excited about trying this third bottling in the series.

This is a one off bottling using unusual bourbon rare squat hogsheads and aged 23 years and at 51% cask strength.

The nose is full bodied with an initial oily spicy note with a hint of peanut butter.

The taste is complex with a sweet barley sugar, candy floss and ginger hit before a combination of fruit and oak joins the party. There is also a oily resonance always there in the background which gives the whisky a real depth.

The finish is long with a slight hint of peat and spice.

It took me quite a few glasses to get a feel for this whisky and for me that adds to the drinking pleasure.

I preferred the Redder still but this is a superb dram and worth the price.

Got to love the Laddie, remarkable packaging alone. It's good see whiskies in this price range live up to the price tag.

This is one Bruichladdich I havent tried but would love to get my hands on. Bruichladdich and Bourbon cask is just a great combo.
