About

The Islay-based Bruichladdich Distillery was opened in 1881, but their current product range is the result of the Jim McEwan-led revival of the early 2000's. Rémy Cointreau acquired Bruichladdich in 2012.

General description

Bit of a gimmick.
An intense barbecuey whisky built on a barley character. Subtle sweetness, little depth. Overpriced for what it is.

General description

Threw a drop in a nosing glass tonight and it was divine. Smoke and peat as promised but theres something entirely different on the nose that i cant pinpoint.. Further shots are needed. The sip is so good, bursting with smoke and floral notes. Very bold but smooth as hell. Will update as i go

General description

Immensely smoky - but overpriced for a one trick pony. Gimmick Whisky.
