On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: A bottle of Bruichladdich

Why do we love Bruichladdich?
Bruichladdich, which means ‘the brae on the shore’, is found on the coast of the western peninsula of the island of Islay known as the Rhinns. The new courtyard-style distillery, built in concrete back in 1881, reflected a new and unconventional approach, which persists to this day. This unique approach was further established, by its use of tall, narrow-necked stills, designed to produce a relatively pure and elegant style of spirit. The tall stills and its source of fresh water are often considered factors in its ability to create a lighter whisky, with the creation of both unpeated and peated expressions.
This wonderful Bruichladdich 40 Year Old was distilled on Islay in 1964 before being bottled in 2004. Forty-Year-Old whisky is always a real treat, and this one really is exceptional. Comes packaged in a metal tube.
