Bruichladdich 1992 Cask #3839 (The Single Malts of Scotland)
This dram is from The Single Malts of Scotland series of single casks, being an early 1990's Bruichladdich its really interesting and was distilled prior to some of the crazy casks of today (which i like also) but always nice to taste a bit of history.
Malty, really malty, with milk notes and preserved lemons, this is interesting, it shows signs of age, and actually tastes old (a bit dusty and a bit dunnage warehouse), a really tasty dram this.
Appears to have sold out at The Whisky Exchange but they do have it in their "perfect measure" size here.
Thanks to Speciality Brands for the official sample.
Very malty initially, appears cold, milky a bit like a milky ovaltine, a touch of cask char and preserved lemons, barley sugars and a touch of dustiness
Massive sweet barley sugars dipped in ovaltine, cask char and sugary sweetness, a hint of those preserved lemons again, waxy and chalky
Warming, sugary yum
