About Bruichladdich Octomore Ten Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Inspired by an entrepreneurial flair and a youthful enthusiasm, the Harvey brothers began construction of the Bruichladdich (pronounced brook-laddie or broo-lah-dee) Distillery in 1881. The brothers were descendants of a dynastic whisky family — their ancestors had already owned distilleries in Scotland for over a century. Today, Bruichladdich Distillery (Bruichladdich means "rocky shore" in ancient Gaelic) remains situated on the shores of Loch Indaal on the island of Islay, and continues to use much of the original equipment installed by the Harvey brothers.
The modern Bruichladdich Distillery is known as the most experimental and adventurous of the Scottish distilleries, and the Bruichladdich Octomore Series represents a singularly unique expression in the world of Scotch whisky. This Octomore Ten Years' age results in a calmer and deeper spirit than the younger counterparts. The 11.1, and 11.3 spirits are more youthful and they focus on the barley influence, while the Ten Years showcases cask influence.
This expression was distilled in 2009 using 100% Scottish optic barley. It was bottled without chill filtration and added coloring in 2019 at 108.6 proof. It has spent its decade in predominantly ex-bourbon casks with plenty of barrel-hopping wizardry taking place to craft the complex blend: virgin oak, first, and second fill casks from Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace, and Jack Daniels were used. Limited to 12,000 bottles worldwide, it's a wonderfully mature peaty Octomore that is refined and complex.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
