It’s all in the Black arts.

Bruichladdich is an award-winning distillery employing generations of distilling knowledge and the principle of minimal intervention.
 
Built in 1881 on the wild Scottish island of Islay, Bruichladdich distillery still uses the original Victorian equipment to create a range of single malt whiskies that are trickle distilled, matured and bottled solely on Islay by a skilled team of 78 men and women.
 
Bruichladdich implements revolutionary, modern interpretations of time-honored ideas and challenges the comfortable conventions of a whisky establishment. Rejecting the onset of modern automation and homogenization, the Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, only considers production methods that place the quality of liquid above everything else.
 
Diversity starts in the field. Provenance is key. Bruichladdich believes the interaction of man, land, soil and climate is paramount. They value their farmer relationships, reconnecting that lost cycle between farmer and distiller -- land and spirit.

Bruichladdich Black Art isn’t just marketing spin. Sure, they play up the kitschy theme with a black, opaque bottle adorned with icons plucked from Masonic Temple conspiracy websites, but this 4th iteration of their non-peated single malt is a genuine mystery — because they won’t tell you a darned thing about it. “Black Art,” get it? They basically let master distiller Jim McEwan run wild in the Bruichladdich rick-house grabbing casks from 1990. But the adventurous is rewarded with a sublimely aged single malt at 49.2% ABV that is grabbing Gold Medals all over the place.

Rich Sherry, Raisins and dark fruits with melted chocolate. A very delicious Dram.

Extremely balanced, smooth but rich bottle

Mark,
I don't know the jargon associated with academic appreciation of the single malt style of spirits distillation... but my nose, palate and tastebuds were all in agreement on this one. Absolutely awesome! I took the bottle to a Scottish Pub (Drouthy Bear in Camden, Maine) tasting of Islay single malts, and the pubmaster saved this one for last: through two rooms full of happy patrons, you could here a wave of gasps and groans of appreciation as this was sampled! Worth every penny, and there was even some to take home to savor soon! No smoke, but absolute 23 year cask perfection. Happy customer!
