Bruichladdich 1986 / 30 Rare Cask Series Sherry: The Magnificent Seven
Made using 100% Scottish-grown barley. Trickle distilled. Then matured for its entire life by the salt-swept Atlantic shores of Loch Indaal in premium first fill sherry butts. It is a testament to the quality of our ingredients. Only 4200 bottles in existence.
Nose: Intense flavours of raisins, fig syrup and prunes. Muscovado sugar, hints of dusted orange peel, dried tea leaves, pipe tobacco and leather soaked PX.
Palate: More amazing Pedro Ximenez notes.Think cigar boxes and Christmas cake. Everything a sherry-matured whisky should be and then some. The complexity and balance is retained as the maritime freshness and the fruitiness of apricot and apple come through from the Bruichladdich DNA.
Finish: Simply incredible Sweet fruit, PX, salted caramel, cinder toffee and a hint of smoke.
