Bruichladdich Micro Provenance Cask 149 Review

Bruichladdich Micro Provenance Cask 149 The Bruichladdich LaddieMP2 was the micro provenance tweet tasting, where three mystery bottlings were unmasked and more information provided on them.

This cask 149, was unmasked as a 2005-2015 Bruichladdich Organic Barley matured in fresh bourbon casks.

There's a lot more fruit in this than I was expecting, more berries and apples, orchard fruits and more, lots of fresh creaminess, wood sap and oak.

This is utterly delicious, very much up my street and I'm very glad to have been lucky enough to to have tried this whisky.

You can only buy direct from the Bruichladdich Shop.

Thanks to Bruichladdich for including me on this tasting, please look out for LaddieMP3 on the 26th November, check out the Bruichladdich Twitter and Youtube links for more details..
