Proof66 Notes

The Bruichladdich Distillery (pronounced "Brook-laddee") is translated from Gaelic as "raised beach," according to the website. It was founded in 1881 by William Harvey where it operated until 1994, when it was mothballed by then owner Beam Global as "surplus." It was reacquired by a group of investors in 2000 and began distilling once again in 2001. The purchase included some 7,000 casks of aging whisky. They are particularly proud of sourcing their whisky from 100% Scottish barley which is "increasingly" organic.

Has a grainy, salty, sweet character to it. Also a tiny hint of smoke in there too. It's a nice change of pace from the usual Islay offerings. Pay no attention to Proof66's score on this one, it's only low because they only have one judging for it. If you like malts similar to Talisker you're going to like this one.

Rocks is where things start off in the Bruichladdich world, and its not a bad place, although its not quite as complex as might be expected of the fairly high-priced starting point for this family of scotches. Being an Isla whisky it does have solid smoke factor, and comes off as sort of Talisker 10 Lite. Its smooth but not as bold as its Isla bretheren. The color is an unusually clear and yellow gold, which is not common amongst the headdier price ranks for scotch. Rocks is itself a 10 year whisky, and represents a solid, good value example of an Isla whisky for new enthusiasts interested in trying some of the more hairy scotches Isla is known for. I definitely recommend this one, and it doesnt require much from whisky drinkers that may be opposed to Scotlands smokier spirits.
