Bruichladdich Valinch 15 (Douglas Clyne)
At the Bruichladdich distillery they always have a cask from which you can bottle your own dram, each cask,chosen by a member of staff, this one having been chosen by Douglas Clyne.
23 years old, matured for 18 years in ex-bourbon then 5 years in ex-Figueroa wine casks, this is damn delicious it has very much a lot of similarity to the valinch 07 which was finished in a Rioja cask.
you can pick up a bottle via The Green Welly Stop
Thanks to Bruichladdich for the official sample
