Bruichladdich Micro Provenance Cask 229 Review

Bruichladdich Micro Provenance Cask 229 Another fabulous dram from the Bruichladdich Micro Provenance tasting, this cask 229 is from 2003 and was matured in a sherry cask.

I've been against some sherry casks for a while due to some poor notes, but this is outstanding, really different and works really well for me, lots of caramel, toffee, sweet and burnt toffee notes, gorgeous.

You can pick this up directly from the distillery online shop.

Thanks again to Bruichladdich for including us on this #LaddieMP3 tasting
