You can picture the scene now:
Owner: "How's the 6year-old stock coming along?"
Distillery Manager: "To be honest, it doesn't taste of much, we've filled those old casks once too often."
Owner: "Fear not! We can re-rack it into these Bulgarian Merlot casks I've bought from the famous Chateau de Vino Tinto Collapso..."
Marketing Manager: "...and then we can sell it in a lovely pink wooden box! Appeal to the ladies!"

And the finishes! What the f*** is that all about - Madeira this, Yquem that, Austrian Spatburgunder the other. They even invent a new name for it: 'ACE-ing' or Additional Cask Enhancement. Get a grip.

HaHa! Great comment Lagavulin 1967, couldn't agree more. Why on earth Bruichladdich persist with their ludicrous policy of releasing a whisky every time it rains or the dog has a birthday is beyond me.

How refreshing to finally get an unmolested laddie that's been in bourbon for 18 years. I bet the wine buffs on Islay are at a total loss with this bizarre idea. Gobsmackingly clean flavours and no pretentiousness, probably the best attempt since 15yo 1st edition
