Bruichladdich Black Art 1992 Edition 09.1 29 Years Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (70cl / 44.1%)
Our dynamic island community would raise a slumbering victorian distillery from the ashes to pursue a progressive reimagining of scotch whisky.
While an esoteric catalogue of youthful spirits were released, the spirit distilled before the distillery’s closure would patiently mature in our loch”side warehouses. The guardianship of these casks would be passed from generation to generation, to one day become an enigmatic showcase of our most meticulously composed cuvèe; bruichladdich’s black art.
With less than 1% of all the single malt in our warehouses now ‘pre”renaissance’, our oldest spirits have become some of our most treasured. This finite 1992 vintage has been nurtured on its 29 year journey from cask to cask by our head distiller, ensuring the eloquent work of our predecessors is given the closest attention.
Unpeated spirit, matured in unrivalled quality oak, with the recipe held in absolute secrecy, this ninth edition of our most alchemic single malt whisky is the oldest ever. This is the quintessential, unparalleled, black art.
Aroma: Simply stunning. Tropical fruit, coconut, tobacco, oak spices and toasted pine needles weave an intricate web of aromas. With a bit of time, this beautiful whisky opens up to waves of mango, honey-drizzled melon, warm orange zest, grilled pineapple and ripe summer strawberries. It’s mouth-wateringly succulent and fruity the gentle oak offering coconut, ginger, buttery shortbread, vanilla custard and hints of tobacco.
Taste: The viscosity and depth to this dram are out of this world; the oak notes of tobacco and brown sugar, chocolate and coconut provide the base for all those wonderful fruit combinations to shine. A drop of water and a second sip further explores the woven layers of this remarkable whisky.
Finish: The succulent fruit sweetness lasts for an age on the palate, apricot, mango and baked banana, toasted sweet oak, honey and vanilla you just don’t want it to end.
