Description

A very limited release from the famed Bruichladdich distillery. There are only 4,200 bottles of the 1985 vintage whisky which has been carefully matured in several different types of cask. It was first placed in third fill ex-Bourbon barrels to ensure a smooth, gentle maturation before being transferred into fresh bourbon barrels to add a whack of character. It has also spent some brief time in French oak to help further the fresh and vibrant flavours.
Tasting Notes
Official Tasting Notes
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, 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.
