About the distillery
Bruichladdich Distillery is a distillery on the Rhinns of the isle of Islay in Scotland. The distillery produces mainly single malt Scotch whisky, but has also offered artisanal gin. It is owned by Rémy Cointreau after being owned by Mark Reyneir.
One interpretation of the Gaelic word Bruichladdich is "stony shore bank", referring to a post-glacial raised beach, though an alternative, perhaps more pertinent translation may be "rocky lee shore".
Pronunciation : "brook-laddie"
"INITIATION BRINGS PROVOCATION. ALL OF THE OPULENT SPIRIT IN 08.2 SPENT THE FIRST SIX YEARS OF ITS LIFE IN ONE OF THREE DIFFERENT STYLES OF WINE CASK.
French Mourvedre – a red wine grape that has a reputation for producing intense red fruit, and strong, earthy, even gamey flavours.
Austrian sweet wines – full bodied and charming with an ability to challenge convention with innovative techniques.
French Sauternes – casks from the Graves section in Bordeaux that previously held some of the most revered and exclusive dessert wines the world has ever seen.
All of the above were second fill casks which had calmed the wood perfectly in preparation for a longer maturation with the mighty Octomore before being ACEd into fresh Amarone casks for a period of two years."
The Octomore 08.2 edition is:
Distilled in 2008 using 100% Scottish barley, from 2007 harvest
