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.

This Bruichladdich expression is part of their tribute series to the best courses in the game of golf, the iconic St. Andrews perhaps being first on that list. Whether St. Andrews is the best course now or ever, one would think its storied history would deserve a scotch that is perhaps a bit more special. This St. Andrews scotch leaves my taste buds confused, and there doesn't appear to be a consistent theme to the overall flavor. There is a floral are here, a buttery scent, and some grilled or smoked vegetables. The floral and buttery tones are likely a result of Bruichladdich's characteristic aging with wine casks. The sum total however, is that it seems more or less like the Scotch version of a reposado tequila. There is a hint of spiciness, but not the full spicy hit of actual tequila. There is marginal sweetness, and the wine cask aging really hits first in the buttery yet somewhat sour effect at sip. This may be the Islay whisky for wine drinkers.
