  • Excerpt: It’s a weird one to me and while it’s not my favorite Bruichladdich, it’s still interesting stuff and if you like wine barrel finished whisky I’d recommend giving it a try if you come across it.

  • Excerpt: It is richer, darker in color, and tastes more mature. It's an improved version, and my rating reflects this.

  • Intro:

    This is a red wine finished unpeated expression from Bruichladdich. Non chill filtered and natural color.

  • Nose:

    Honey, brine, some light floral fruit and some sweet cream. Pretty lactic, as I find most Bruichladdich spirit to be.

  • Taste:

    Thin mouth feel but light, briney and sweet. Theres fruit and a hint of wine followed by more hay, honey and brine.

  • Finish:

    Medium, more salty grain, followed by one last round of wine sweetness.

  • Overall:

    Personally, I enjoy this dram. Its not as wine-forward as I was hoping but all in all, I think it's solid. Its kind of a niche whiskey though and I cant say that I come home everyday and think to myself, "Rocks is the whiskey for tonight" but when I'm in the mood, its enjoyable.
