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.
