Bruichladdich Black Art 06.1 is 26 Year Old, un-peated, creamy Islay magic.

Bruichladdich is one of the most impressive distilleries in Scotland. It was built on Islay in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, who came from a Whisky family dynasty. They built a cathedral-like, state-of-the-art Victorian still house, where they used 6-meter tall stills, which was unheard of at the time. Now owned by Remy Cointreau, the distillery remains pretty much the same as it has for more than 100 years. As the French culinary saying goes, "it is in the oldest pots that the best soup is made.” Slow fermentation, slow distillation, married in traditional wooden vats, and huge washes made from towering Douglas Fir. The distillery produces non-peated Bruichladdich Single Malt, Port Charlotte which is peated in the classic Islay style, the heavily peated Octomore, and The Botanist Islay Dry Gin.

Bruichladdich Black Art 06.1 is the latest edition of the legendary enigmatic Black Art Series with a cask history known only to the Bruichladdich's head distiller, Adam Hannett... Here's what we do know about the 6th edition of the mysterious Black Art series. The unpeated Single Malt was aged for 26 years, it was distilled in 1990, and only 18,000 pieces were bottled at a brilliant 46.9% ABV. The fact that no chill-filtering and artificial colors were applied in the process is also important to be pointed out. You must probably be really curious about the cask type... We could make some wild guesses here, but actually, truth be told... Only Adam knows!

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Warm walnut. 

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas are deep, floral and rich with current and blackberry jams, chocolate, plum almond paste, and lemon zest.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is very delicate and complex with layers of dates and figs, raisin, ginger, more chocolate, flan pecan pralines and warm tobacco.

The medium length finish lingers with exotic fruits, oak, and ganache.
Ratings & Reviews
My lord. Heaven. When I finished my dram I was genuinely sad. This is number one in my collection. My go to distillery from now on. Without a doubt.
I loved this, the smoke is light compared to the rich fruity overtones. Much less smoke I felt than 5.1 and more body. It has a sweetness that washes over with a crisp fruity hint of Pineapple that was most prevalent for me. I'd love to buy 6 bottles but alas it's pricier so one or two will do!
A little too heavy on the lamb spleen at this price.
Love it
