15 Year Old Hidden Spirits
- Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Hidden Spirits
A 2002-vintage Bruichladdich bottled by Italian indie Hidden Spirits. Bottler Andrea Ferrari has chosen an excellent cask for this release – a single peated sherry cask, aged for 15 years and bottled at a punchy 'Highproof' strength of 53.1%. It's rare for a whisky with the name Bruichladdich on the label to be smoky these days – that's normally the realm of Port Charlotte and Octomore, both produced at the distillery – but this 'peaty sweety' is an excellent example of peat and sherry working in harmony.
