Far from other major groups ruling the world of whiskey, this distillery can indeed pride itself on belonging to a small circle of private individuals. Built in 1881 by Robert, William and John Gourlay Harvey, the distillery was rebuilt in 1886, took the form of Bruichladdich Distillery Co. Ltd., but still remained under the direction of the same family. 1929 put 1937 to sleep and was bought by Joseph Hobbs who took advantage of the growing demand for whiskey in the US market. Redeemed late 2000 by the current owners: Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin (formerly Murray McDavid) and Gordon Wright (formerly Springbank), the stimulus was overseen by Jim Mc Ewan. Dismantled and repaired, the production unit, some elements of which dated from its creation, allowed to distil again from 2001.
Does the nose smell really good, passion fruit, oranges, zesty? Not very representative of Islay but more than pleasant. One of my favorite versions of Bruichladdich. Simple but effective. Simple is beautiful! We ask for more.
Low salted juices in oak and cedar bark, with a Duncan HInes cake mix. Very nutty in the mouth gold it lacks a little length in the final. When he gets older, the vinous expresses himself more but hides what is most subtle. Okay, nothing more.
Very saline, slight sherry. Brown sugar. Green banana. Conifers. Citrus.
