Heavy peat smoke meets sweet dried fruit extravaganza.

As early as the 18th century, the Harvey family was a big player on the distilling map of the island of Islay, where they owned and operated several distilleries. In 1881, the three Harvey brothers – William, John, and Robert – received an inheritance; can you guess what they spent it on? Obviously, they opened a new state-of-the-art distillery on the island of Islay – Bruichladdich. Today, this producer of 1.5 million liters of the finest Scotch Whisky per year is owned by the French company Remy Cointreau, which totally explains their Wine-based approach that focuses on origin, terroir, traceability, and authenticity.

Fans of pushing the boundaries of Whisky laws, their Octomore line brings you heavily peated beasts. Octomore 12.3 is a single vintage, single field, single malt awesomeness that comes at you at 118.1 PPM. The 100% Islay-grown barley comes from Octomore Farm in Church Field just two miles from the distillery, where it’s harvested by friend and farmer James Brown. Now, 12.3 is a combo of two parcels that had taken two 5-year-long separate journeys before being married: 75% was aged in 1st fill American Whiskey casks and 25% in 1st fill Pedro Ximenez Sherry butts from Fernando de Castilla. Expect salty citrus marine notes to deliver strong Islay barley vibes while Pedro Ximenez brings you sweet dried fruit extravaganza to back up all that rich dry peat smoke.

Bruichladdich is one of the few distilleries that dedicates 100% of production to their broad range of single malt Whisky.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
