Why we like it
A British wine and spirits merchant established in 1698. The Berry brothers and Rudd have been the official wine supplier to the British Royal family since the reign of King George the third. So what does all this have to do with Scotch? Well BB&R have been buying up old scotch distilleries in an attempt to produce and showcase whiskies that are representative of the regions in which they come.
Peat was the fuel which was historically very abundant in Scotland, so it would be burned in order to dry the barley. This would imbue the dried barley with a distinctly smoky flavour profile. There is a lovely freshness to this whisky, a nuanced salinity and a distinct, smoked tinged cocoa aftertaste. It finishes deeply warming and lingering, like a hug from your 40-a-day grandfather.
