The very last 22 casks from 1985 have been used to create this fantastic edition of Bruichladdich's single malt. The casks were rediscovered in 2012 by then master distiller Jim McEwan, who filled their spirit into fresh bourbon barrels for added depth and complexity. In 2017 the whisky was again rehomed, this time into French oak which had previously held claret from a prestigious chateau. This three month period imbued the bourbon-aged whisky with an extra layer of fruit and sweet notes, as well as a subtle blush colour.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes from the producer

    • Nose

      An amazing array of notes. Blood orange, nectarines, banana bread, desiccated coconut, vanilla custard, then more floral and nutty tones, geranium, marzipan, walnut, heather honey.

    • Palate

      Tremendous presence on the palate, the texture is wondrously soft and syrupy. The short ACE in the wine casks has given a warm, nutmeg hint and a layer of fruity notes, has given a warm, nutmeg hint and a layer of fruity notes, raspberry, blackcurrant jam and ripe plum, all perfectly balanced by years in American oak – cinder toffee, lemon meringue and coconut – bounty bar sweet. It opens continually to reveal layer upon layer of complexity.

    • Finish

      Long and gentle, the oak influence is strong with waves of soft vanilla wafer, toffee and sandalwood. Then lemon barley sugars, a hint of salted caramel and apricot syrup.
