Bruichladdich 15 Year Old

Bruichladdich 15 year old is our Scotch this month.

Touted as Scotland’s purest single malt whisky, this Islay scotch has won 3 awards   since it’s distilleries recommencment in 2000.

The first thing I noticed about this scotch is that when you pour it, it has a slightly lower viscosity than other single malts.

It’s been noted to have a stong toasted malt in the taste with a honey tone. I would add that there is a touch of brine to this that is unique.

And I do prefer this scotch over ice.

The distillery is proud to maintain traditional methods and tools in it’s process, and there is some information about it online. The official website is at bruichladdich.com.

And a search on you tube will bring up some short, but interesting videos of the distillery.
