Tasting #22: Focus on Bruichladdich distillery

Dear malt maniacs,

winter seems to be finally upon us and we thought this is the ideal time to get comfy and discover one of the most exciting distilleries in Scotland: Bruichladdich ! It is not a secret that we from the WWS very much appreciate this distillery and maybe they will have a few more admirers after this month’s tasting…We will go through five whiskies in their current collection, ranging from fruity, unpeated single malts to the (apparently) most heavily peated whisky in the world and from relatively young (8 years) to relatively old (22 years). So, mark your calendars and join us next Thursday evening at Scandale !

When: Thursday, 9 November, at 19:30.

Where: Our usual joint: Scandale!

How much: As always, the participation fee is CHF 30 for non-members and CHF 20 for members. Places are limited and will be given away on a first-come first-served basis! As usual, you will have the opportunity to lay your hands on one (or more) of the open bottles during the usual auction at the end of the evening (assuming that we do not finish them during the tasting…)!

 

These were the 5 picks at the tasting:

  • Bruichladdich Laddie 8 years old
  • Bruichladdich Laddie 22 years old
  • Bruichladdich PC12
  • Bruichladdich PC10
  • Bruichladdich Octomore 10 years old (2nd edition)
