image may not be actual bottle available

Colour: Brilliant, luminous lemon with a harvest gold hue.

Nose: When you first inhale the bouquet it’s like the “the hills are alive”, with aromas of yellow flowers in bloom on forest river-banks and heather-covered moorlands, barley fields shimmering yellow and gold, orchards filled with ripe fruits, all embraced by the warm, westerly ocean breeze. This is the beauty of young Bruichladdich spirit; you can reach into its soul and transport yourself to this amazing island simply by closing your eyes and inhaling. It’s a remarkable harmonious bouquet.

Palate: The olfactory concentration continues onto the palate. On tasting, you will discover that squeeze of lemon, honey, pear and green apple, little hints of tangerine, chocolate, light notes of marzipan, cinnamon and sweet, oaky, vanilla. The harmonious freshness of barley and wild flowers rising on that irresistible marine presence unique to the islands of scotland. The taste buds rejoice in the warmth of the spirit and sweetness of the malt; it’s a taste they seldom experience in such generous measures. Islay malt whisky from islay grown barley is something that very few people have experienced. Now you understand what has been missing in your life and never have to wonder again.

Finish: The finish is outstanding. How can you say goodbye to a kid that’s stolen your heart with his beauty and honesty. It’s difficult, but it’s not goodbye, because as you enjoy the final drops, john logan, the farmer at dunlossit, is about to start ploughing for this year’s harvest – dream fulfilled!

- Distiller's Notes

Producer: Bruichladdich

Price: $79.99

Availability: 7

Country: Scotland

Region: Islay
Although one of a number Scotland's whisky producing islands, Islay is so distinctive in character it is classified as a separate region. Of the island's seven distilleries currently bottling, Ardbeg, Lagavulin, and Laphroaig on the shouthern shore and Caol Ila to the north, are known for making the most peaty whisky that expresses medicinal qualities redolent of seaweed, salt, and iodine. By contrast, Bowmore, Bunnahabhain, and Bruichladdich make less peated but equally complex whisky, with the latter two bottling the island's lightest styles.

Type: Scotch Whisky
Single malts, made by a single distillery and from 100% malted barley, comprise the majority of our selection. However you will also find a number of popular blended Scotches as well as some very special one-off, single barrel, single malts from independent bottlers.
