    My latest foray into higher filling strength malts. Also my new record high for bottled ABV.

    However this one is much more manageable, compared to say, younger Bruichladdich wine casks at similar ABVs. I'm assuming this is due to the former liquor in the cask, in this case Bourbon, having a much higher ABV that helps manage the cask into submission. At least that's what I theorized coming into it, and also got out of it.

    Still, I do not particularly prefer this style of malts, even though this is okay for me.
