Mothballed by previous owners Whyte & Mackay, Bruichladdich distillery was revived in the year 2000 by indy bottler Murray McDavid. For a long time the distillery was the black sheep of Islay, on account of producing unpeated whisky in order to meet its owner's blending requirements. Contrary to general expectations though, this also made it a hit with the locals who were presumably sick of the sight of peat.

Since its resurrection, and under the guiding hand of maestro Jim McEwan, Bruichladdich hasn't shied away from experimentation in cask management, quadruple distillation, love-it-or-hate-it presentation, and the introduction of the heavily peated Port Charlotte and (REALLY heavily peated) Octomore ranges. Oh, and they make a mean gin too.

This miniature tasting pack includes;

Bruichladdich Rocks

Bruichladdich Rocks was introduced in 2007, and is designed to be taken with ice. Though how you "design" a whisky to be taken with ice is beyond us. No doubt someone will let us know!

46% ABV / 5cl

Bruichladdich Waves

The old Waves from a range of contrasting Bourbon and Madeira cask, and medium and light peating levels. Subsequent bottlings dropped the age statement and the peating level.

46% ABV / 5cl

Bruichladdich Peat

A replacement for the highly successful '3D' series, Bruichladdich Peat apparently 'does what it says on the tin' with phenol levels of 35ppm.

46% ABV / 5cl

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
