Bruichladdich Rocks Islay Single Malt Scotch 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Tea rose/ wild raspberry. Body: Light, bright and full of the joys! A vibrant spirit brimming with the unique flavors of the Hebrides. Nose: It has an exhilarating bouquet, opening with soft red grapes, red currant jelly, pomegranate and red apple all encases in an envelope of syrup, sweet malted barley and brown sugar vanilla. It's snappy and sweet, zipping along the crest of a wave migrating from Islay to France but always returning to the homeland. Palate: It jumps right out of the glass anxious to please. Lots of Celtic fire and spirit. The wine flavors wait patiently while the malt and oak display their charms - then given time they emerge bringing red cherry, strawberry and spiciness. It has a yogurt like texture, really creamy yet still retains a smappy coastal crispness. Finish: It's a malt on a mission. Does not hang around, quick as a flash, it's gone leaving you wondering, should I have bought an extra bottle?

Bruichladdich (try ‘Brook-Laddie’) is a Gaelic reference to the ‘raised beach’ upon which the distillery is sited, on the Hebridean Isle of Islay, on Scotland’s wild west coast. Built in 1881 by William Harvey and his brothers, it was closed down in 1994 as “surplus to requirements”. On 19th December 2000 it was acquired by a small group of private investors led by Mark Reynier. Following extensive renovation, the distillery recommenced distilling at 08.23 on the 29th May 2001. Bruichladdich, now a private Scottish company operated, managed and directed on Islay. Scotland’s purest single malt whisky is made from an unusual marriage of manual C19 equipment, inspirational distillery design and pre-industrial distilling techniques. 500,000 - 700,000 litres are distilled annually from 100% Scottish barley – increasingly Organic and Islay grown – from different farms (terroirs), varieties and peating levels.

Vintage: NV 10/04/2012

Tea rose, wild raspberry in color. Light-bodied with an exhilarating bouquet. Opens with soft red fruit encased in an envelope of syrup and brown sugar vanilla. Red fruit and spices on the palate with a creamy yogurt like texture. Outrageously drinkable. Refined in French Grenache casks which gives this whisky its unique red fruit notes.

Designed by master distiller Jim McEwan who has selected superb quality casks from various ages and further refines them in Frech Grenache casks. Tea rose and wild raspberry in color followed by grapey nose with pomegranate notes. A rich malt and vanilla palate is followed by a berry spicyness.

\ The inviting bouquet offers aromas of fruitcake, banana nut bread, sweet malt, crispy pork rind, sweet oak, vanilla, red grapes and blackberry jam. Entry is sweet and grainy; at midpalate the taste profile suddenly bursts with red fruit presence and oaky vanilla. Finishes clean as a whistle, chewy and concentrated.\
