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.

Bruichladdich's Perilous X4 Spirit is no longer new make, after 3 years maturation it is now officially whisky. This marks the first official quadruple distilled single malt whisky in centuries. It is matured in a mix of bourbon and new virgin oak barrels.

Age: 3 years old

Cask Type: Bourbon & virgin oak barrels

63.5% ABV / 70cl
