Bruichladdich 'The Peat Proposal'-Statement of age?

Postby humanzie » Tue Dec 14, 2004 4:55 pm

Hello everyone,
I recently bought the new 3D Bruichladdich bottling 'The Peat Proposal'. Upon tasting the bottle I realised that there was no age statement. I thought the 3D was a 30. The back just describes the bottling as a blend from three separate casks from three separate areas and three separate ages. Does anyone know what approximate age these would be? Im I also right in assuming that these casks would be all taken from the Bruichladdich distillery and just not a representation of the Bruichladdich style?The label seems very vague and seems to imply this. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Nick

I looked over the notes etc on the Bruichladdich website and I am curious as to how it tastes.

Its delicious-medium peat, light to medium bodied with a pronounced digestive biscuit flavour component.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a "3D" bottling?

(All of my bottles are 3D. Those 2D pictures taste awful! :lol: )

I had some at the distillery and thought it was quite good. As I recall, one of the three components was very young, thus the lack of age statement. I think it was a heavily peated experiment, and my impression was that the 3D was the solution for the problem of what to do with this stuff, because it wasn't going to make it on its own. (That's just my surmise.) I think they did quite well with it.

Was't that the premise behind the Jura Superstition - blending a young peaty version with an older OB?

I believe you've hit it on the head, Frodo. Hey, I'm drinking one right now--not too bad for a Jura.
