Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 2001
2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.67 points
- A bottling from the first barrel bottled at the distillery after re-commissioning on 29 May 2001. The honor of bottling was then symbolically granted to the five-month-old son of the new Destilleriemanagers, Mark Reynier. And this was nicknamed "Wee Ruari". A total of 376 bottles were bottled at that time. After Bruichladdich was sold in 2012, Mark Reynier retired from the distillery. Now the family decided to sell 250 of the 376 bottles. The remaining bottles remain in the family, as a precaution for the now 13-year-old son.
- The back of the bottle reads:
Bruichladdich was brought back to life on 29th May 2001. This whisky was the very first spirit to flow from the stills: Cask 1.
On that glorious spring day, the honour of filling this historic barrel was bestowed on Ruari Reynier, born the same fateful winter day, 5 months earlier, when this astonishing distillery journey began. Distilled 29th May 2001, aged 11 years.
This bottle is named after the son of Mark Reynier who “filled” this cask, there is a picture of this on the bottle.
Cask 1 “Wee Ruari” was the first cask filled at Bruichladdich by the new management team.
