troika_1024

The first of December 2016 is circled red on our calendar. On that day, at 19:00 DST (20:00 CET), an exclusive Bruichladdich tasting is going to be held featuring the second releases of the unpeated Laddie Ten, the heavily peated Port Charlotte 10 and the uber-heavily peated Octomore 10, a Troika of Tens.

In 2011, they released the Laddie Ten, their first ten year old created from spirit produced by the ‘new’ team since the rejuvenation of the distillery in 2001, swiftly followed by the other two ten year olds. All spirit has been distilled at the Bruichladdich distillery in 2006 from 100% Scottish barley, is matured at their warehouses on Islay and each expression is bottled at their on-site bottling plant into 18.000 bottles.

The Laddie Ten Second Edition

  • Unpeated barley
  • First-fill bourbon, sherry and French wine casks
  • Bottled at 50% alc. vol. using Islay spring water

Port Charlotte 10 Second Edition

  • Heavily peated with a phenol level of 40ppm
  • Full term in first-fill bourbon, sherry, Tempranillo and French wine casks
  • Bottled at 50% alc. vol. using Islay spring water

Octomore 10 Second Edition

  • The world’s most heavily peated whisky with a phenol level of 167ppm
  • First fill bourbon and Grenache Blanc casks
  • Bottled at 57.3% alc. vol.

A Troika of Tens will be celebrated with a live Twitter feed from the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay. Looks like we are going to have some fun on the first of December, make sure to follow the #TENSTROIKA on twitter then!
