Heavily peated treat: Smoky as hell, delicious as heaven.

The Bruichladdich distillery (pronounced brook-laddie) was established in the 1880s by the Harvey brothers. It operated for half a century, shut down and was resurrected in 2000 by a bunch of Whisky-loving business people. Then, the shiny rebooted Whisky-making operation got an esteemed Master Distiller, Jim McEwan, previously working at Bowmore. Bruichladdich reportedly produces 1.5 million liters of Spirit every year.

Among that sea of booze, there's a very special kind of Whisky: The Port Charlotte expression that comes in opaque green bottles as "a nod to the heavily-peated Islay category". It got its name from the nearby silent distillery, which stopped producing Spirits in 1929. This lovely vintage is made from local barley and was matured for ten years in a combination of first-fill Bourbon, Sherry, Tempranillo and French Wine casks. It's an authentic heavily peated Whisky with a full-bodied and rich dram with a long and peaty finish.

Peat is neat!

Bruichladdich is the largest single employer on the island with 60 full-time staff, and various temp and contract personnel.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
