Bottled in 2006 to celebrate Bruichladdich’s 125th anniversary, this expression is 35-years-old, and contains spirit distilled in 1970. "The best Bruichladdich ever",
according to the distillery’s Lynn McEwan. Matured in Alsace Pinot Grigot casks,
considered to be some of the finest in the world, only 2,502 bottles have been
released worldwide. The nose is fruity, with peaches to the fore, and
Bruichladdich’s characteristic fresh, zestiness is never far from the surface.
Slightly smokier, darker notes develop with time. Stewed fruit, barley and
ginger dominate the palate, which dries steadily with distinctly winey and
spicey tones. A truly exceptional bottling created by Master Distiller Jim McEwan, presented in a luxury dark wooden box.
