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.

This is a red wine finished unpeated expression from Bruichladdich. Non chill filtered and natural color.
Honey, brine, some light floral fruit and some sweet cream. Pretty lactic, as I find most Bruichladdich spirit to be.
Thin mouth feel but light, briney and sweet. Theres fruit and a hint of wine followed by more hay, honey and brine.
Medium, more salty grain, followed by one last round of wine sweetness.
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.
