Bruichladdich HIGH abv distillation

Postby old rarity » Sun Feb 26, 2006 9:09 pm

One of our members on the forum at http://www.straightbourbon.com reports that Bruichladdich is distilling this very weekend a very high ABV whisky, in the neighbourhood of 92% if I understood the report correctly. He said the distillery said it will have a flowery taste and be a whisky. Has this news been reported here and are any other details available? It seems extraordinary that this could be done using pot stills unless multiple batch distillations are being used. It could be done with a column still but I doubt there is one at Bruichladdich. Apparently this is an attempt to replicate a whisky of some hundreds of years ago. However the distillery intends it seems to age it 10 years. Bruichladdich makes fine whiskies and I am intrigued by this development and the technics and rationale for it. Any information/clarification/comments appreciated.
