An Uncharacteristic Bruichladdich, yet impressive all the same.  
Bruichladdich is one of the most impressive distilleries in Scotland, the World even. It was built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, who came from a dynastic Whisky family. The brothers had wanted to create a distillery that was the very antithesis of an Islay farm distillery. They built a cathedral-like, state-of-the-art Victorian still house, where they used 6m tall stills, which was unheard of at that time, and way ahead of its time.
 
Today, the distillery remains pretty much the same as it did over 100 years ago. Their belief is, as the French culinary saying goes, ""it is in the oldest pots that the best soup is made"". Slow fermentation, slow distillation, in very traditional, wooden vats and huge washes made from towering Douglas Fir.
 
An uncharacteristic unpeated Whisky from the guys behind Octomore. Bruichladdich's Islay Barley is a 2007 vintage Scotch made from barley harvested in 2006 at Rockside Farm on Islay. This is triple distilled in the Bruichladdich style, to keep as much of the delicate flavours of the Whisky as possible - an incredibly smooth Whisky.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).
