The wonderful Bruichladdich distillery on the Isle of Islay was founded back in 1881, and for a long while they happily produced tasty whiskies for the enjoyment of all. In the latter half of the 1900s, the distillery was closed and reopened a number of times, though the doors are firmly open these days, with some phenomenal and inventive whiskies flying out of them (well, not actually flying - they’re probably transported on a truck of some description).
They’ve produced a number of stunning expressions, and often they’ll let you in on the thought that goes into the direction they wanted to follow with the whisky. This has resulted in some intriguing ranges with all sorts of weird and wonderful names - many of which are referenced on the label of our Bruichladdich bottling.
Nose: Caramelised dates, polished oak, a hint of oatcake and white wine.
Palate: Continued wine-like fruitiness, followed by a crack of black pepper.
Finish: Mineral dryness and strawberry laces.
