Winning bid: £100.00
Lot number: 069-1585

Bruichladdich was established in 1881 and has changed hands many times over the years.

Owned by French spirit group Remy Martin Bruichladdich distils, matures and bottles its whisky on site as well as using barley from the surrounding farms.

Since its renaissance in 2001 its range of whiskies are bottled without added colour or chill filteration and at 46%ABV and above.

It is a pioneer of cask management, peating levels and presentation.

Note from Jim McEwan, then master distiller, "Following the success of 3D2 I decided that the new recipe for my friend Norrie's tribute bottling should be the most heavily peated of the series with more passion, warmth and personality to reflect the character of Islay's last traditional peat cutter who supplied all the great Islay malt distillers with peat until the last advance of the machinery used today. Lord help the angels when Norrie comes knocking on heaven's door."

3D3 contains three malts - Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore - at three different ages, and is the most heavily-peated of the 3D releases.

46% ABV / 70cl
