Bruichladdich Micro Provenance 2007 (Cask 14), 63.6%

Price: $117 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Dave Broom

The Micro Provenance series is Bruichladdich's web-exclusive range of single cask bottlings. This is made from barley grown on Rockside Farm (now owned by Kilchoman) and has been aged in virgin oak. The oak doesn't dominate the nose, allowing fresh cereal sweetness to develop, along with an estery lift and some jasmine/meadowsweet florals. The palate is where creamy vanilla and white chocolate show through. Fresh, balanced, and bottled at the right time. (468 bottles) £90
