The classic Bruichladdich.

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.

Because we were looking for the fifth element on our grain journey we could not go pass barley and Bruichladdich’s take on it. Bruichladdich Scottish Barley Malt Whisky is triple-distilled, made entirely from un-peated barley and aged in American oak casks on the shores of Lochindaal.

This is the definitive Bruichladdich. It's made entirely from un-peated Scottish barley (otherwise Scotch can be produced with barley from anywhere in the World) and is a combination of multiple vintages that give the Classic Ladie, as it is also known, youth, exuberance and a touch of class and luxury.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Corey
This is a fine whisky, but it was not for me. Even being no peat, I could still detect the salty air. This is great for many tastes, but I prefer a little less of the salty/smokey air.
Phillip
I did not like the hard finish and aftertaste.
