Tasting note

  • Nose : ample, racé. Remarquablement salin et soyeux, le premier nez se montre également délicatement fumé. Puis, des notes de teinture d’iode et de racine de gingembre accentuent son caractère profondément îlien. Complexe, il devient au fur et à mesure de plus en plus fruité (abricot, coing).
  • Palate : riche, concentrée. Altière, elle oscille entre la vanille, le bâton de réglisse, le melon, les fruits exotiques (mangue, goyave) et bien sûr la fumée, des notes de tabac à pipe d’une grande noblesse d’expression. Avec beaucoup de classe, la tourbe s’insinue dans la moindre des anfractuosités de la palette gustative pour mieux mettre en valeur la qualité de son caractère fruité et épicé.
  • Overall : longue, svelte. Epicée (baie rose, poivre noir), l’arrière-bouche est en même temps réglissée et torréfiée (thé vert). Au fur et à mesure, des notes de viandes fumées prennent possession du palais. Saline, l’arrière-bouche est en même temps médicinale (teinture d’iode). La rétro olfaction est marquée par des notes de rhubarbe et de fruits rouges (fraise).
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.
