Nothing lacking. Nothing to add. It is an absolute integration of time, high quality oak and Scottish barley.
The color is warm like a golden sunlight. On the nose there Firstly, is the crispness of malted barley, then soft fruits rise gently giving aromas of pears in syrup, papaya and honeydew melon Beautiful silkiness that caresses and stimulates the palate. The flavours mirror the aromatics completely with an almost syrup-like texture. A delicious harmony and gentle warmth that reflects the personality of the people who made it.The influence of the sea evolves as citrus lemon and lime bringing fantastic freshness. The taste lingers long and it is the mellowness of the oak that is the last to leave, fading gently like a sunset on Islay’s west coast.

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.
