Thanks to /u/cake_my_day for this sample
Seems a little silly having Bruichladdich 18 (2nd edition) prior to having the 1st edition, however my love of completing things in video games is a lot harder in real life when Bruichladdich is concerned.
I mean, I gave up with the damn feathers in Assassin’s Creed 2, and they are a cake walk compared to finding more and more of the Bruichladdich releases.
So we have Bruichladdich 18 (2nd edition). The idea behind this sub-category among the legion of releases is it was aged in ex-Bourbon casks, and then finished in French oak. But not just any French oak. French oak that was previously used for Jurancon sweet wine from the south-west of France. The wine itself is what’s on parade here.
The wine is made from Petit Manseng grape and have Noble Rot in them. Don’t get that too often.
