This is a 23 year Bruichladdich that was selected by K&L Wines. It was matured in a refill sherry butt and bottled at 54.8% ABV.
Nose: Oddly smoky with heavy citrus and berries. Sherry influence is noticeable but doesn’t overwhelm the nose.
Palate: Clean malt with heavy citrus again – strikes me as similar to the Black Art 3.1 from Bruichladdich with muddled fruits and subtle sherry.
Finish: Bitter with a bit of smoke and tangerine.
Value for the money: These go for around $150, and I don’t think I’d buy another at that price.
