Thanks to /u/ForbiddenWaffle for pouring me this dram.
So you’re at the Bruichladdich distillery. And you’ve done one of their amazing tours. You walk into the little gift shop at the end. Love a little shop.
This isn’t filled with the usual knickknacks though. Instead, it has to pour your own samples. If you happened to be there in 2017, you could have poured Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Valinch Cask Exploration 14 Taigh-Bathair Bannaichte, but only if you could say the whole thing in one breath.
This whisky (I’m not saying it again) is one of the rare hand-poured distillery samples. It was aged solely in a first fill PX sherry casks for 11 years, poured at cask strength, and made from the heavy peated (but not super peated) group that falls under Port Charlotte.
But does it taste good? So often these days limited editions don’t always mean amazing…
