Bruichladdich is living proof that the traditional whisky regions of Scotland make no sense. Please don't think that labelling a whisky "Islay" has anything to do with taste because the truth is far more complicated and interesting.

Built in 1881 when puffer-supplied coal was available as an alternative fuel to local peat, it is likely that Bruichladdich was specifically designed to produce the purest unpeated spirit possible. The great Alfred Barnard supports this view with a tantalising clue - the Laddie is the only distillery on Islay that he does not describe as drying its malt using peat in his fascinating exploration of the island's distilleries in 1885.
