2010 North Star Bruichladdich (Lochindaal) 10 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$340. 00 Bottle
At the time of writing, this is the third only Lochindaal to arrive at Nicks Wine Merchants! Bottled from a refill barrel, it's the result of a relatively rare run which is heavily peated, placing it in between Port Charlotte and Octomore, so it's named for a specific style (and after a now closed Islay distillery). For many, Lochindaal is like young Caol Ila - ever reliable, complex and super tasty. It's also a distillate that doesn't seem to require long ageing to show its best. North Star describe notes of toffee apple, peated grapefruit, dark chocolate and sooty whipped cream followed by a medicinal finish. Very limited stocks from a run of 288 bottles. 53.5% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
