Bruichladdich 29 Year Old Black Art 10.1 Single Malt Whisky

Part of the Black Art Series from Bruichladdich, this is Edition 10.1.
Using artisanal techniques passed down from one generation to the next, the spirit is pulled exclusively from Bruichladdich distillery pre-renaissance casks which have been patiently maturing for almost three decades. The finite Single Malt was created in secret by Bruichladdich‘s Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, with the recipe only known to him.

    Nose:    Warm and inviting, a bright fruity note welcomes you. The fragrant toasted oak brings chocolate praline, cedar, leather and subtle hints of clove and nutmeg, before moving to fruit notes of sweet apricot jam, ripe melon, dark cherries and blackcurrants. There is a light touch of citrus with lemon zest and gooseberries dipped in honey, with delicate floral notes of geranium and honeysuckle balanced with a hint of iodine and leather.

    Taste:    Orange barley sugars, ginger nut biscuits and lemon meringue pie are followed by sweet apricot jam and marzipan. The toasted oak brings smooth chocolate and vanilla notes, beautifully complemented with syrupy fruit, raisins, plum and melon. Over time, iodine and a hint of coconut come through, with delicate oak spices of warming ginger and cinnamon. A velvet texture, the depth and balance of this single malt glides across the palate.

    Finish:   Tablet and smooth fudge bring a softness to the finish, while ripe soft fruits, subtle tobacco and a hint of ginger linger.

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.
