Bruichladdich Rocks 70cl 46°
This Bruichladdich Single Malt is a bold combination between the best Bruichladdich vintage casks, with an extra maturation in ex-French wine casks. This malt is a testimony to the exceptional water quality of the Rhinns of Islay, as it has been filtered through metamorphic rocks or gneiss, formed more than 1.8 billions years ago...
Bruichladdich Rocks is a refreshing, vibrant malt with floral, fruity flavours evoking rose tea and blueberries coated in a mellow and vanilla-flavoured texture of grain and cereals. A creamy malt brightened with maritime notes.
This version is wrapped in a metal tube and includes a branded glass.

Established in 1881, this Islay distillery faces Bowmore on the other side of the Loch Indaal.
In the past, it produced the less peated and lightest malts of the island, due to its four long-necked stills. As it almost disappeared in 1995, it was purchased by a group of investors who trusted Jim McEwan (former Bowmore employee) with the responsibility over distillation and blending. Since then, it has been a feast of fascinating novelties and releases…
A rare fact in Scotland, the Bruichladdich distillery (“Bruk-ladie”) uses a brewing vat in open air. Its onion-shaped stills have a very flat bottom and a long neck. The very light peated Bruichladdich Single Malt is unfairly underestimated. It reveals indeed a maritime origin with an iodized nose and a salty mouth flavour. Longer maturation imparts a full body to the whisky and makes it a gourmet, elegant malt. Bruichladdich is also perfect when aged in sherry casks.
The distillery produces also two heavily peated whiskies: Port Charlotte and Octomore.
