Bruichladdich Whisky – Resurrection Dram 2001
Built in 1881 when puffer-supplied coal was readily available as an alternative fuel to local peat, it is possible that Bruichladdich whiskey was specifically designed to produce the purest unpeated spirit possible.
The Harvey brothers – William, John and Robert built Bruichladdich on the shore of Loch Indaal, on the Rinns of Islay, the westernmost part of the island. The Harvey’s were a dynamic whisky family that had already owned two Glasgow distilleries since 1770.
Coming back to present day, the Bruichladdich whiskey Resurrection Dram 2001 is a blend to be marvelled. The nose has a firm and full gentle peat with a slight medicinal character. A slight sweet note follows through, along with herbal notes. Fennel and peppermint can be detected, along with dry hay.
A rolling, soft mouthfeel that gently builds to a small ashy peat fire. The palate offers more of a fruity tone, with medium levels of peat than what was originally experienced. A touch of oak and golden raisin can be experienced too, as the smoke builds.
There isn’t as much of the savoury flavour in the palate as there was in the nose, but more of a malty, fruity taste.
The finish is long and straightforward, with essences of peat smoke and spice. A couple of herbal notes and berries push through in the tail, leaving it a nice blend- more mature than expected for the age.
