Bruichladdich is an award-winning distillery employing generations of distilling knowledge and the principle of minimal intervention. Built-in 1881 on the wild Scottish island of Islay, their distillery still uses the original Victorian equipment to create a range of single malt whiskies that are trickle distilled, matured and bottled solely on Islay by a skilled team of men and women. Bruichladdich implements revolutionary, modern interpretations of time-honored ideas and challenges the comfortable conventions of a whisky establishment.
Rejecting the onset of modern automation and homogenization, Bruichladdich Head Distiller, Adam Hannett only considers production methods that place the quality of liquid above everything else. Diversity starts in the field. Provenance is key. They believe the interaction of man, land, soil, and climate is paramount. They value their farmer relationships, reconnecting that lost cycle between farmer and distiller -- land and spirit.
The modern Bruichladdich Distillery is known as the most experimental and adventurous of the Scottish distilleries. They transform the craft into an artistic fusion of time-honored and contemporary with their inspired series and releases.
Bruichladdich “The Last of their kind” is a series of three very old whiskies from 1984, 1985, and 1986. Adam says, “These rare, old single malts are a direct link to our past, to the men who made truly special spirit here while facing very different circumstances to those which we enjoy today. Testament to their skill and hard work it was laid down to mature by the shores of Loch Indaal, unaware of what the future might bring.”
This 1984: "All In" expression is drawn from the last 12 casks of classic Bourbon-aged Bruichladdich, a style Adam considers to be: “the ultimate expression of our spirit. The fruit, the faint salt tang, the signature elegance is all there with layer upon layer of vanilla/butterscotch complexity.” The unpeated vintage is aged for 32 years and is a limited release of 3,000 bottles.

Classic old school Bruichladdich on the nose with notes of coconut, warm muscovado sugar, vanilla custard, grapefruit, mango, baked ginger biscuits, marzipan. This transitions to notes of date syrup and sultana. The palate delicate and gently warming with notes of crème brulee, buttercup and orange zest, transitioning to toasted oak and praline. Sweet citrus and mango come through later. The finish is gentle with warm scones and dried fruit, candied orange, lemon peel and apricot jam.
