Bruichladdich 13 Year Old Tasting Notes

Tasting notes by Jim McEwan MBE

Colour: Luminous Autumnal medium barley

Nose: It’s an olfactory delight. Subtle waves of succulent fruit create a halo which frames the sweet toastiness of the malted barley. Its time spent maturing on the Atlantic edge creates a freshness that works beautifully with the crispness of the toasted barley.

Palate: Full bodied, the balance between the oak and the spirit is a marriage of power & grace giving a texture that is super smooth, rich, viscous and multilayered. The taste spectrum is amazing. The sweetness from the barley, the fruitiness from the Jurançon, the mellowness of the oak, the freshness of the Atlantic tides & its 13 years maturing in the single Jurançon cask. Distilled by Islanders in an 1881 Distillery.

Enjoy your spiritual visit to the coast of Heaven!

About this Dramfool Jim McEwan release

Distilled on 16th September 2010 this whisky spent its whole 13-year life maturing in cask #2302, maturation taking place in a first fill Jurancon barrique. Produced using exclusively Islay grown barley this is a real testament to its island home.

Jurançon is an area known for both sweet and dry wines (Jurançon and Jurançon Sec,) grown Pau in South West France surrounded by the rolling landscape of the Pyrenees foothills immediately southwest of the city of. The wines here are based on two main grapes varieties producing, long-lived wines with strong aromatic intensity and freshness.

Bottled in January 2024 as Release 8.1 of the Jim McEwan Signature Collection, like all whiskies within the collection, it was bottled un-chill filtered, with no added colour and at natural cask strength of 59.2% (Jim would have it no other way!), it yielded only 256 bottles.
