Bruichladdich // Islay, Scotland
Bruichladdich Black Art 1994 07.1 Edition is the seventh Black Art release and the third by current master distiller, Adam Hannett. Distilled in 1994, this is an unpeated single malt aged 25 years in a variety of undisclosed casks. Only Hannett knows the exact "recipe." Matured entirely on Islay, this is bottled at cask strength of 48.4% ABV without added color or chill-filtration. This is a limited release of 12,000 bottles worldwide.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Touches of cigar boxes and cassis on the nose, but also raspberry candy and ripe plums. Whiffs of sultanas too, followed by pear parts and walnut skins, as well as honeycomb. It is somewhat delicate, but rather complex and inviting. The palate displays dark and brooding fruits of the forest variety, but dried. The viscosity is admirable. Notes of cherry syrup and tobacco leaves with a hint of mint and coconut shavings. An excellent release by Bruichladdich"
