Tasting note

  • Appearance : or pâle.
  • Nose : frais printanier. Au premier nez, l’eau-de-vie de poire Williams jaillit littéralement du verre, cette note est d’ailleurs le point d’orgue de la palette aromatique de ce Bruichladdich de 20 ans. Cependant, l’orge maltée n’est pas loin, le foin coupé non plus. Un peu plus tard, une pincée de sel vient recouvrir des agrumes confits (citron) et de la vanille-bourbon.
  • Palate : vive et onctueuse à la fois. Elle évoque une cuve de fermentation en pleine ébullition (bière, levure), un mash tun duquel émane également des notes d’agrumes (pamplemousse) et de fruits exotiques (ananas). Elle possède une agréable fraîcheur vanillée et poivrée.
  • Overall : longue, douce. Si de nombreuses nuances de verts dominent la palette chromatique de ce malt, celles-ci sont teintées ici et là d’or. L’ambiance devient plus feutrée lorsque des notes de sous-bois (champignons, feuilles mortes) et de réglisse font leur apparition. La rétro-olfaction est légèrement fumée. Le verre vide respire la poire Williams. La boucle est bouclée.
The brand

The brand

The desire to take on new challenges at this distillery is so high that it would take almost an entire chapter to describe all the different experimental bottlings of the Bruichladdich single malt, created under the aegis of Mark Reynier and Jim McEwan. In addition to the “classic” range of unpeated whiskies, they have released peated malts (the 3D and Port Charlotte range, followed by Octomore, the spirit with the highest phenolic content ever seen), triple-distilled malts and even quadruple-distilled malts, not to mention the different casks used for maturation, a process the “laddies” prefer to call A.C.E (Additional Cask Enhancement) rather than “finishing”. Bought in 2012 by the French group Rémy Cointreau, the distillery seems to be moving towards the production of more classic styles using only 100% Scottish barley. Find out more

The distillery

Following its acquisition in 2000 by a group of investors, the Bruichladdich distillery underwent a meticulous renovation in 2001, which enabled the owners to keep almost all of the original 19th century equipment, including an open brewing tank and very elongated onion-shaped stills (the stills for the second distillation are six metres high). The resulting single malt is very mildly peaty, being characterised by its coastal origins, with a scent of sea air and salty flavours on the palate. Reserving all of its production for the single malt market, Bruichladdich is also the only distillery to age and bottle its whisky on the isle of Islay. It produces two heavily peated releases: Port Charlotte and Octomore.

Merchant

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

The Cask Strength Collection of single malt and single grain whiskies is without doubt one of the most appreciated ranges. Each release is bottled undiluted, unchillfiltered and usually consists of a single cask. To help the consumer appreciate their whisky at more than a purely aromatic and gustatory level, Signatory Vintage takes care to display on each label, with great precision, the region of production, the date of distillation and bottling, the type of cask used, its number and the number of bottles of the same nectar that were produced. This range thus offers some fascinating facts, in addition to exceptional quality!
