Description:
Limited stock.

Nothing lacking. Nothing to add. It is an absolute integration of time, high quality oak and Scottish barley.

Colour: Warm, golden sunlight.

Nose: Firstly, the crispness of malted barley, then soft fruits rise gently giving aromas of pears in syrup, papaya and honeydew melon, almost like jellybeans eventually. Mellow oaky sweetness from the bourbon barrels arrives a little later with notes of vanilla pods, flapjacks and, of course, the slight drift of mellow bourbon.

Palate: Beautiful silkiness that caresses and stimulates the palate. The flavours mirror the aromatics completely with an almost syrup-like texture. A delicious harmony and gentle warmth that reflects the personality of the people who made it.

Finish: The influence of the sea evolves as citrus lemon and lime bringing fantastic freshness. The taste lingers long and it is the mellowness of the oak that is the last to leave, fading gently like a sunset on Islay's west coast.

Mood: Happy-go-lucky. Any time, any place. Classic. Early evening. Rejoice in the fact that you can still enjoy handcrafted single malt from Scotland's whisky island.

Producer Information

Bruichladdich was built in 1881 by Barnet Harvey at an ideal location on the edge of Loch Indaal, on the Rhinns, the most westerly point of Islay. At the time it was a state-of-the-art plant, and it has remained very much the same ever since with most of the original equipment still in use. Using cavity walls and a new fangled material - concrete, made from pebbles from the sea shore, this was a purpose built plant (most other ones had been adapted from farm buildings) and so is efficiently laid out, built around a central courtyard that housed the Kiln (removed in 1961) and a large steam engine that provided the power.

After several corporate amalgamations over the last thirty years, it was found to be "surplus to requirements", and was closed down in 1994; it has been silent ever since. That is, until 2001 when the plant was entirely renovated. All the Victorian equipment, much of it still original nineteenth century engineering was been retained. The machinery, boilers, pipe work and electrics were completely dismantled and reassembled by a team of highly dedicated and talented engineers.

There is not one computer used in the production of Bruichladdich whisky: this is a genuine working museum; but as the French proverb says: 'it is in old pans that one makes the best cooking?'.
