The Ternary Project er den første i en serie af  is the first in a series af small batch eksperimenter.
of revitalised small-batch experiments released from Bruichladdich Distillery.  Ternary består af tre komponenter og i dette tilfælde kombineres single malts fra Bruichladdich. Tre vintages af tre forskellige typer whisky fra tre forskellige fad typer.

30% kommer er unpeated Bruichladdich spirit, distilleret før lukningen af destilleriet  i 1994. Der er tale om single malt fra 2nd fill ex-bourbon hogsheads der er flyttet over på franske rød vins fade og til sidst over på pedro ximinez sherry butts fra Fernando De Castilla.

40% kommer fra Portcharlotte  der blev destilleret kort efter genåbningen i 2001. Port Charlotte har først ligget på en kombination af 1st fill bourbon barrels, 1st filloOloroso sherry casks og 1st fill virgin oak.

De sidste 30% kommer fra Octomore. Octomore blev destilleret i 2008, fyldt på sauternes, fransk mourvedres, østrisk sød vin, ex-amarone og bourbon casks.

Head distiller, Adam Hannett siger:  "I love the opportunity to throw out any framework and delve into the warehouses. Here, I have crossed the boundaries of spirit type, combining Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore single malts. Each intricate component is a complex recipe in its own right."

The Ternary Project er aftappet ved 52,1% og der kommer 4000 flasker af denne aftapning til en pris af €275

Noter (Bruichladdich):

Nose: All at once there is a combination of peat smoke, dried figs and toasted oak with rich dried tobacco emerging from the glass. The powerful characters of this whisky intertwined and displaying their intensity. As the dram opens so does the detail and complexity. The deep earthy, dry peat smoke. Sweet toasted oak with coconut, creamy vanilla, cinder toffee and milk chocolate. The layers of fruit go from dates, figs, raisins to cranberries, cherry and peach. Candied Citrus peels and black tea. Leather and sea salt. Hazelnuts and hints of gorse flower.

Taste: On the palate the presence of this dram is immense. The rich texture sweeps across the palate and brings with it the earthy peat smoke, the dried fruit and rich oak, balanced beautifully with no one aspect dominating the other. Barley sugar and stoned fruit add their weight and then the lighter citrus notes, vanilla, peaches, cherry. Another sip opens up the floral elements and the soft marine notes. The characters of the three components, Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore are all evident and they come together to provide harmony and balance

Finish: The finish is where the the floral notes and stoned fruit come through brightly before fading until only the peat smoke remains with hints of the dried fruit. All three spirits showing their fruity and floral style alongside the peat ash and beach bonfire notes the Octomore and Port Charlotte components bring.
