Before this distillery reopened, its whisky was very different to its current offerings. Br2 continues in Br1’s footsteps, exemplifying this sweet, fruity and oily style. A marriage of a small number of casks from a single production year, the fruity character of the spirit shines through.

Cask detailsDistillates from the early 1990’s matured in two Refill Hogsheads

PalateRich and fruity, with the pineapple and sharp apple from the nose accompanied by banana, spicy ginger, black pepper and a drizzle of heather honey.
FinishLong and spicy, fading to leave zesty citrus.
A nice malt, typical for the unpeated Bruichladdich house style, perhaps a bit on the spicy side.
Pretty exemplary Bruichladdich.
