Here, the peat smoke combines with salt spray from the shores of Loch Indaal to vie with the toasted oak and lemon barley sugar flavours of the wood, ultimately releasing multi-layered and warming aromas of poached pears, cinnamon, ginger and yet more rich vanilla.
In common with all whiskies crafted at the House of Bruichladdich, no artificial colour is added and it has not been subject to chill-filtration. This retains the natural oils and esthers that are so fundamental to the texture and taste of the spirit which is bottled at 57.8% alc./vol.
This latest release is a single vintage and so inevitably limited.
It is available from April 2016 exclusively through travel retail outlets around the world – and also from The Laddieshop on Islay.
