Bruichladdich head distiller Adam Hannett believes Old Bruichladdich in bourbon is the ultimate expression of their spirit. The fruit, the faint salt tang, the signature elegance is all there but there is now layer upon layer of vanilla / butterscotch complexity.
In 2008, their then master distiller Jim McEwan identified a classic vintage parcel of that celebrated style and re-casked it into fresh bourbon for the last leg of an epic journey.
This dram comes from the very last 12 casks of the 1984 legacy distillation, poignantly filled on 31st December that year.
