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.

It's like an abusive girl friend who gives you a world class back massage after a fight. She hurts you than makes you feel so good.

Finish strength: Very long
Color: Gin clear

General description

first smell of heavy smoke, tar. fruity taste, dried fruits, oily. hold it in your mouth for at least 20 seconds to make all the flavours come free. it will numb your tongue and enhance the sweet flavours. long aftertaste of salty caramel with a peated undertone.

Nose

tar and peat but with some sulfury smells. almost gluey

Palate

first lots of peat, then when kept in mouth for 20 seconds it will numb your tongue and bring free all sweet, dried fruits and caramel flavours

Finish

salty caramel with a peated undertone.
