SCOTLAND-ISLAY / 0.70 liter, 50%Read more...
THIS SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY WAS ORIGINALLY CRAFTED BY DISTILLING LEGEND JIM MCEWAN TO SHOWCASE THEIR FLORAL AND ELEGANT HOUSE STYLE. UNPEATED, IT HAS BECOME THEIR SIGNATURE BOTTLING.
Jim has now retired but the spirit for this definitive Bruichladdich is still made from 100% Scottish barley, trickle distilled, and then matured for its entire life, on Islay, by the shores of Loch Indaal.
Each vatting of this classic multi-vintage cuvee is now carefully assembled from a suite of individual casks by the Head Distiller Adam Hannett.
The palate entry is so refined and refreshing, the sweet oak and the barley arriving together sending the taste buds into raptures. The fruits from distillation drift in on an Atlantic breeze and pop on the tongue like champagne bubbles. A combination of ripe green fruit, brown sugar and sweet malt bring closure. A taste back in time, a realisation that not all single malts are equal and to achieve the absolute optimum, you must use barley that is made in Scotland. Make this one the benchmark for all others you meet on your journey through the stills of Scotland.
