The first permanent 18 Year Old single malt in the wider Bruichladdich portfolio, The Bruichladdich Eighteen is a true coming of age bottling. When the distillery was reopened in 2001, the Bruichladdich team set out to reconnect land and dram, championing its raw ingredients, introducing the concept of terroir to the whisky world, and supporting the local community.

In pursuit of flavour and to support the agricultural community on Islay, Bruichladdich began working with a farmer in 2004 to raise a crop of locally grown barley. This pioneering trial has now expanded to 20 vital farming partners today who grow over 50% of the distillery’s barley for total production.

Bottled at 50% ABV and made up of this first crop of Islay grown barley, along with Organically, grown grain and varietals from the Scottish Mainland, The Bruichladdich Eighteen is fully traceable, from farm to glass.

Distillery Tasting Note:

Nose Beautifully fragrant with ripe peach and honeysuckle, hints of violet and lavender come through on the nose – balanced with vanilla and creamed coconut from the toasted American oak. A medley of tropical fruit comes to fore, with melon, peaches, apricot, and vibrant citrus, while the influence of the oak brings honey, caramel vanilla custard and rich crème brûlée.

Palate Luxurious and viscous, honey, butterscotch and fresh fruits coat the palate, followed by cereal notes of sweet, syrup-soaked porridge, barley sugar and toasted oak. Vibrant tropical fruit and the subtle presence of toasted oak with a hint of leather follow, with honeycomb adding to the smooth, sweet character.

Finish The quintessential character of Bruichladdich single malt comes through on the finish. The 18 Year Old has the classic minerality for which Bruichladdich is renowned, perfectly balanced with oak, stoned fruit and a delicate floral bouquet.

Cask Maturation:

Bruichladdich 18 has been matured exclusively on Islay in primarily bourbon casks, showcasing the optimal expression of Bruichladdich single malt. These bourbon casks, together with a small number of sauternes and Port casks, are vatted and married for nine months before bottling- balancing Bruichladdich’s signature floral and fruity character.

New Approach to Secondary Packaging:

The Bespoke outer packaging featured on both 18- and 30-year-old is the first of its kind in the whisky industry. Made from fully recyclable paper pulp and moulded to the shape of the proprietary bottles, it is the definition of modern luxury – while using less. The light weighted nature of the materials used reduced our CO2 impact, with every aspect – from creation to transportation – lighter.
