Bruichladdich was established in 1881 and has changed hands many times over the years. Owned by French spirit group Remy Martin Bruichladdich distill, mature and bottle their whisky on site as well as using barley from the surrounding farms.
Since their renaissance in 2001 their range of whiskies are bottled without added colour or chill filtration and at 46% ABV and above. They are pioneers of cask management, peating levels and presentation.
The "Still" series started with the now-legendary (and sadly unobtainable) "Blacker Still" and concluded in 2008 with this absolutely sublime dram.
A rare limited edition, unique in that the classic 1984 spirit was matured in unusual, hand-made squat American bourbon hogsheads – experimental "dumpy" casks that American coopers flirted with briefly in the eighties.
This extra wood contact has produced a spirit reminiscent of an older style of whisky, an alluring and haunting barley sugar character of a bygone age.
