Bruichladdich (pronounced ‘Brook-Laddie’) is a Gaelic reference to the ‘raised beach’ upon which the distillery is sited, on the Hebridean Isle of Islay, on Scotland’s wild west coast. Built in 1881 by William Harvey and his brothers, it was closed down in 1994 as “surplus to requirements”. On 19th December 2000 it was acquired by a small group of private investors led by Mark Reynier. Following extensive renovation of the original Victorian equipment, the distillery recommenced distilling on the 29th May 2001. Bruichladdich remains a private Scottish company, uniquely operated, managed and directed on Islay. Matured beside the Atlantic, the marine-influenced whisky is bottled in Islay’s only bottling hall - 100% naturally - free from industrial processes of chill-filtration, artificial colouring, and homogenisation.
Personally blended by Jim McEwan, the 17 Year Old was produced from 100% ex Bourbon hogsheads.
Other reviews... Nose: Gentle and soft. Sweet oak, flowers, vanilla, nutmeg, dried apple, apricot. Water brings out more toasty notes, hazelnut and milk chocolate. Palate: Rounded and creamy, with a subtle interplay between vanilla-like oak, macaroon bars, nut and fruit. Finish: Fresh and crisp. Comment: What is it about Islay whiskies in their mid-teens? A masterclass in subtlety. 46% Alc./Vol. Rating: 8.75 / 10.

Nose: gentle citrus-led fruit caresses the nose; soft malt counters the spice; Taste: mild malt offers both a sharp barley thrust and a much softer gristy sweetness; Finish: the mouthwatering richness continues to the very end with some spices suggesting oak but the malt remaining in control; Balance: there has been quite an enormous jump in quality between ‘official’ tastings of this malt. Where once it was just delicate, it is now delicate and raucous: soft and rough lovemaking to the palate. A dram dedicated to Laddie Jim McEwan’s sex life, one assumes! Lucky bugger! 40% Alc./Vol. Rating: 94
