Bruichladdich Rare Cask: 1986, 30 Year Old, 70cl

Price: £730.00

Ultra-rare. This is an elegant, floral Bruichladdich with intense, full-term sherry maturation. First filled into Oloroso butts in 1986, this spirit lay untouched in a loch-side warehouses until 2012, when Bruichladdich's then Master Distiller Jim McEwan decided to supercharge this sublime single malt by filling it int Pedro Ximinez butts from winemaker Jan Pettersen at bodega Fernando de Castilla.

Limited to 4,200 bottles, the 1986 is bottled at the distillery without chill-filtration.

Tasting notes:

Dried fruit - raisins, fig syrup, prunes and Christmas cake. Muscovado sugar, a hint of hot sand and candied peel, dried tea leaves, pipe tobacco and leather rolled in PX. On the palate the experience raises the bar still further with sweet PX notes, raisins, dried figs, dates, grape sugar. Leather, cigar boxes and Christmas cake. Everything a Sherry matured whisky should be and more. The complexity and balance is retained as the marine freshness and fruity notes of apricot and apple come through from the Bruichladdich DNA.
