BRUICHLADDICH - 12 Year Old Second EditionIslay Malt Whisky
The 12 year old 2nd edition replaces the original 10 as the Bruichladdich Aperitif dram.
Traditional lightly peated Bruichladdich, matured in Bourbon casks to replace The 10 which has now sold out. Casks selected by world renowned Master Distiller, Jim McEwan.
Bottled on Islay at 46% strength using Islay's legendary spring water, without colouring or chill-filtering. Bruichladdich's tall stills and sloor slow distillation produce the most sophisticated Islay whisky.
Taste Descriptors: Passion fruit, pear, gooseberry, apple, apricot, butterscotch, sweet malted barley, vanilla and thyme. Layers of green fruits, citrus fruits and vanilla cream - the perfect aperitif.
Such is the integrity of the bottling with it's well chosen casks that it can support a fair dilution with cool still spring water to reduce the alcoholic strength to the desired level - without losing any of the flavour.
Created from 100% American oak Bourbon casks, this bottling replicates the layers of fresh fruit and creamy vanilla flavours associated with the 10, making it the ideal whisky to enjoy particularly before lunch or dinner - or just as an early evening dram.
