Bruichladdich 10 yo (2006/2016), Private Cask, 64,8%

Review #651
This is a “Private Cask Bottling” bottled for ”Kjølsen & Watt-Boolsen” and comes from a Bourbon cask (#0319). A great mix of grass & hay and sweet vanilla in the smell. Hints of fresh mint as well.

Very fresh in the taste. Classic Bourbon cask influence. Vanilla, oak and spices, but also the classic Bruichladdich farmer style is present. The finish is long and warm. Oak and hay comes more forward as the alcohol roughness tones a bit down.

Not overly complex, but a great example of what a 10 year old Bruichladdich can be when matured in a quality ex-Bourbon barrel. 64,8% - plenty of room for you to play around with water, so you can find the exact sweet spot for you! I will give this 87/100 (22/22/22/21).
