Bruichladdich distillery
En face de Bowmore, sur la rive nord du Loch Indaal, se trouve la localité de Bruichladdich avec sa distillerie du même nom, qu’on appelle aussi affectueusement Laddie. Jusque récemment, elle était considérée comme la distillerie écossaise la plus occidentale avant que, pendant l’été 2005, à quelques kilomètres seulement de Bruichladdich, s’ouvre la distillerie Kilchoman.
Les îliens ont juché leurs enfants sur leurs épaules pour qu’ils soient témoins du moment historique. Ils se sont massés sur le rivage d’Islay pour assister à la réouverture de Bruichladdich (en 2001). L’avion du matin, qui amenait des invités, était en retard. Sur la côte, on scrutait le ciel. On avait attendu dix ans ; alors, pourquoi pas une heure de plus ? Les amateurs de Bruichladdich étaient venus de Londres, de Seattle, de Tokyo. Il y eut des larmes de joie, un ceilidh (bal gaélique) et un feu d’artifice à minuit.En 2012 Bruichladdich est vendu au groupe Remy Cointreau.

Islay, Isle of 
The island of Islay (pronounces Eye-La), the most southerly of all the Hebrides, lies on the east coast of Kintyre.
It is flat, green and largely composed of peat (water on the island is brown with it mixed with peat). The harsh winter winds push the salty clouds far on the island, allowing the peat to soak in water, which is again dried by salty breezes of the sea. All these features make the charm of whiskeys from Islay, of great importance for some and less for others.
It has undoubtedly a privileged position in the world of whisky. The island has nine distilleries in activity and is carried by many whisky’s specialists as an autonomous region. It still remains parts of the installation of two other distilleries, such as warehouses, or in one case, an oven. In the best of times, there were here nearly 26 distilleries.

Notes de dégustation

Colour: Straw.
Nose: Very atypical and industrial! Flavours of hydrocarbons and dead leaves. Sometimes there are flavours of Gorgonzola with mushroom. Said like that, it is not very sexy. But it comes out of the box which makes you want to know a little bit more.
Palate: Notes of peach, oil, lemon syrup, and again cheese with mushroom. This whiskey is really a UFO!
Finish: Short. The astringent and lemony acidity settles and clears everything else.
