32 years. A long journey with a few crossroads, a few considered and inspired decisions down the line. This dram comes from the final 22 casks of the legacy stock distilled back in 1985 by a previous generation of Bruichladdich stillmen. This whisky was originally filled into gentle third fill Bourbon casks and lay untouched in warehouse 14 until 2012. Our then master distiller Jim McEwan discovered this forgotten parcel and re-casked it into fresh bourbon adding depth and complexity.
Bruichladdich Rare Cask 1985(700ML)
Nose: Honey’d barley dusted with cacao. Fresh orange and lime, plus a little hint of honeydew melon. A suggestion of savoury basil…
Palate: Coconut ice cream with chocolate sauce, plum grapes, oak-y cinnamon and waxy pine.
Finish: A lingering sweetness of peach and pear.
