Bruichladdich 30 Year Old – Re/Define
After closing in the late 20th century, the future of Bruichladdich lay in major jeopardy, nearly being consigned to the annals of history like so many other long-lost Scotch distilleries. Thankfully, the distillery was revived in 2001, saved along with all the maturing stock still patiently residing in the distillery's historic warehouses. The 30 Year Old is a testament to this momentous revival; a composition of entirely pre-closure Bruichladdich, giving a pure insight into the turbulent chapter of this nearly forever-lost producer.

The whisky was matured entirely in ex-bourbon casks, allowing this distiller character and impressively long maturation to shine forth. Initially entirely refill bourbon, half of the stock was transferred into fresh bourbon barrels after 10 years of maturation, whilst the rest remained in the original casks. Toasted oak, vanilla and honey gently ooze from the nose of this patient dram. Hints of dark chocolate mingle with refined floral accents in a sip, before the signature marine Islay air awash the palate and linger longer into the finish.

Bruichladdich 18 Year Old – Re/Define
Experience the first-ever core release 18 year old whisky from the Bruichladdich distillery. The distillery has long championed the capture of Scottish terroir, working with local farmers since 2004 and growing to 20 farming partners who now make up over 50% of the distillery's barley production. This fine expression is a full realisation of this long pursuit, using the first crop of Islay-grown barley in addition to other Scottish mainland varietals.

Matured in a mix of ex-bourbon, sauternes and Port casks, solely on the island of Islay. Notes of honey, butterscotch and citrus orange grace the nose, with tropical fruits and a touch of toasted oak on the palate, all the while harnessing a full-bodied texture.
