Malt Messenger Bulletin
We Have a New KWM Laddie Cask It Will Be Gone in a Flash!
It has been a while since we’ve sent out a Malt Messenger Bulletin all on its own. It is a shorter newsletter that I reserve for special occasions or when there is whisky news that just can’t wait for the next full edition. This time it is both.
If you follow us on Social Media, or are one of those customers who frequently mine the website looking for new whiskies, then you might already be aware that we have just received a new cask of Bruichladdich. Our second ever cask of Bruichladdich arrived in-store on Wednesday. In just 3 days 2/3 of the 240 bottles have already sold. It is possible the remaining bottles will not last until the end of the weekend. Hence the haste in putting out a Malt Messenger. More details and my tasting note on this lovely new whisky can be found below.
I hope this Malt Messenger Bulletin finds you well, and in time to grab a bottle of the Bruichladdich before it sells out. If not, there will always be another whisky. We are expecting our 2nd edition of the Glenfarclas 15 Year KWM Cask Strength later this month!

Introducing: Our 2nd KWM Exclusive Bruichladdich Cask
The Bruichladdich 2007 KWM Fresh Bourbon Cask!
Our 2nd KWM Exclusive single cask of Bruichladdich is a 12 year old from a Fresh Bourbon Cask, #336. It was distilled from unpeated optic barley on March 16 2007, and bottled November 14, 2019 at 58.6%. Only 240 bottles, and we don’t expect them to last long. It is over 2/3 sold in 3 days! – Limit of 2 bottles per customer!
Bruichladdich 2007 KWM Bourbon Cask 336 – 58.6% – 12 Year – Fresh Bourbon Barrel – My Tasting Note: “Nose: creamy, honeyed and malty with loads of fruit and a gentle salty maritime flourish; juicy and toasty with soft decadent oak spices; Starburst fruit candies and French vanilla ice cream; the barley lends the nose a soft minerality. Palate: silky to start with loads of honey, more French vanilla and then a bold surge of juicy fruits and crisp barley; the salty maritime tones arrive later with decadent spices; thick and oily; more Starburst fruit candies, honeydew melon, bitter orange and singed lemon peel; candied ginger, cinnamon sticks and licorice root; later allspice; toasty and nutty; once again the barley shines through. Finish: long, fresh, coating and creamy; decadent vanilla, juicy fruits and crisp spice. Comment: thick, creamy and toasty with loads of fruit, barley and a touch of crisp Islay air; young and Fresh without a rough edges and a complexity beyond what you expect for just a dozen years in the cask; this is a naked Laddie, clean and elegant!” – $135 – Limit 2 bottles per customer!
