Bruichladdich  25 Year Old 1991 Yellow Submarine WMDIII

This Limited Edition from Bruichladdich is the third in a series released to commemorate the finding of a small yellow submarine on Islay. Head Distiller Adam Hannett has hunted out the last parcel of that original 1991 spirit, now at a sublime 25 years old, and presented the ‘WMD III - The Legend Resurfaces’ (WMD - Whisky of Mass Destruction). Originally filled into refill sherry casks, this Bruichladdich spirit was then transferred into Spanish red wine casks in 2006. This third iteration has been balanced with refill bourbon casks, just as its predecessors. 
Only 1,991 bottles released.
