Scott's Selection Bruichladdich 750ml

Scott's Selection Bruichladdich

A single cask from this Islay favourite from before their temporary 1994 closure, independently bottled at cask strength in 2011. The whiskies in this series are selected by Robert Scott, former master distiller at The Speyside Distillery.

BRUICHLADDICH DISTILLERY WAS BUILT IN 1881 BY THE HARVEY BROTHERS. THE HARVEYS WERE A DYNASTIC WHISKY FAMILY WITH OVER A CENTURY OF DISTILLERY OWNERSHIP, INCLUDING GLASGOW’S YOKER AND DUNDAS HILL DISITLLERIES. THE THREE BROTHERS DECIDED TO COMBINE THEIR EXPERTISE TO BUILD A THIRD HARVEY DISTILLERY: ROBERT DESIGNED IT, JOHN HAD THE DISTILLING EXPERIENCE, AND WILLIAM HAD THE MONEY. WHISKY IS ALL ABOUT TIME. NOT ONLY THE LONG YEARS SPENT MATURING IN DAMP WAREHOUSES, BUT THE TIME SPENT IN DISTILLING. OR IT SHOULD BE, BUT IN THESE DAYS OF MODERN DISTILLING, WHERE MOST WHISKY IS DESTINED FOR CHEAP BLENDS, TIME IS MONEY. DISTILLING HAS BECOME ABOUT ULTIMATE EFFICIENCY, COMPUTERISATION, HIGH-DENSITY FERMENTATION ETC. THE QUICKER, THE CHEAPER. LIKE A PIECE OF CELLULOID FILM, A BOTTLING COMPRISES OF SEVERAL DIFFERENT FRAMES. EACH FRAME, WHEN INTEGRATED INTO THE WHOLE, PLAYS ITS OWN PART IN THE STORY.
