Bruichladdich 18 Year (1st Edition)
Bruichladdich // Islay, Scotland
This 18 year old whisky spends its final days luxuriating in barrels of dessert wine. The wine in question is a Zweigelt Trockenbeerenauslese (bonus points if you can say it ten times fast) from the winemaker Willi Opitz in Austria. This is a luscious red dessert wine for those of you without Master of Wine credentials.
