Bruichladdich  25 Year Old Black Art 1994 Edition 07.1

Bruichladdich was built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, who owned the Dundashill and Yoker grain distilleries in Glasgow.
Unlike their neighbouring distilleries from the island of Islay, the Bruichladdich range is made without peat. Without the influence of smoke, they expose the brilliance of our raw ingredient – barley. Stepping further outside of whisky tradition, they have traced ingredients from origin to bottling, embracing every growing season, the subtlety of changing barley varietals and the methods applied in growing them.

Bruichladdich introduces the new Black Art 7.1: the casks that were selected for this vintage single malt whisky from 1994 were matured for 25 years. It was the year when Bruichladdich was closed, so this whisky is a witness of the last months the distillery’s production before it was mothballed and waited for its revival in 2001.

    Nose:    Richly fruity and nutty. Cereals, dry wine. Green wood. The nose is nice and interesting.

    Taste:    Sweet malt, like candy. Spices. These play well together.

    Finish:    Wood. Grains, with an occasional sweet note popping in. Long.

Please note: The Bruichladdich range outer tins are extremely prone to dings and scratches. The tins often arrive into our warehouse suffering from minor damage in transit. This is out of our control. When we dispatch to our customers, we will re-pack to avoid further damage in transit but collectors should have reasonable expectations in this regard.
