Well here the story of what happened this afternoon;
i bought the bottle of 3D for £36.99 and very happy i was to, but half way home thought i would have a look at the colour. In doing so i noticed hundreds of little bits in the bottle . I knew they had another bottle so of i went back to the shop to check that bottle out. It was the same . The shop manager said he just got 2 the 2 bottles in and never noticed and has never seen anything like this before and was going to send them back.
So i exchanged it for the Caol ila distillers, which i know i like but would have really have liked to try the Moine Mhor.
Back to the bits in the Moine Mhor has anybody any idea what this can be? cork?? im just not sure. They Where very tiny and seemed to be suspended in the whole bottle, so much so that first i thought it was a trick of the light.
No it wasnt Oddbins but a good smaller independant shop. I didnt even think that the shop was that cold, unless he recently put it on the shelf. Heres what bruichladdich have said to me about it;
''As you know all our whiskies are 100% natural - no chill-filtration, homogenisation, or colouring - and bottled at the distillery on Islay with Islay spring water to ensure this.
If at any time the whisky is stored in an excess of temperature - either cold or warmth (though more likely the former in recent days), particles may precipitate as they do in fine wines that have equally not been chill-filtered; in effect it is proof of the naturalness of the bottling, and therefore the extra flavour, texture and aroma to be expected.
Sometimes, a shake of the bottle or when the whisky regains room temperature will cause it do disappear. As with a venerable wine, there is no need to filter it out, the whisky can be enjoyed as normal.''
