Bruichladdich Micro Provenance Cask 060 Review

Bruichladdich Micro Provenance Cask 060 The Bruichladdich LaddieMP2 was the micro provenance tweet tasting, where three mystery bottlings were unmasked and more information provided on them.

This cask 060 is an X4+9 being 4 times distilled and then matured for 9 years in a fresh bourbon cask, this was casked at 89% ABV

This is a lovely drop of whisky, sweet and very bourbony, it's strong and spicy also though and really has a kick, water mellows the kick and allows the whisky to become much sweeter and more creamy.

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..

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Oh that's quite a woody nose, the higher ABV really has pulled out the woody notes, spicy cask char, vanilla, fizzy sherbet and American cream soda, this is like normally bourbon cask Bruichladdich but enhanced.

Palate

Sweet American cream soda, vanilla sugar, spicy and cask charred, with woody oaky sawdust like notes, thick and creamy, caramel sauce lots of spicy notes but it's sweet enough to keep it going well.

Finish

Sweet, caramel, toffee and spices
