Bruichladdich line comes of age

27 July, 2007

Bruichladdich Distillery

is adding a new whisky to its core range.

The 18

Year

Old whisky has been aged in American oak before spending several months in casks previously filled

with sweet Austrian "straw wine" made by producer Willi Opitz.

Additional cask evolution gives whisky more complexity, according to chief executive Mark Reynier. " Afficianados hooked on

sherry casks will be blown away - there are similar traits but more complexity, finesse and fruit thanks to the finer oak and totally unique straw wine," he said.

The whisky is described as having a rich toffee taste, with hints of cinnamon and cooked fruits.
