Bruichladdich Releases Black Art 06.1
Progressive Hebridean distillers Bruichladdich has released the sixth edition of Black Art 06.1. This 26-year old unpeated Islay single malt whisky is the latest incarnation of a legendary line of spirits; its cask history is a well-kept secret by Bruichladdich’s head distiller, Adam Hannett.
Boasting a rich nose of black charred oak with blackberry jam, dark chocolate, and raisins, notes of marzipan and lemon meringue pie give sweetness and tell of the Bruichladdich DNA working with the casks (there’s probably some sherry involved!). Only 18,000 of the 06.1, individually numbered, will be available worldwide, so be sure to snag a bottle.
The Bruichladdich Black Art 06.1 is now available at $650 nett for a 700ml bottle at La Maison du Whisky. Connoisseurs can also savour this limited edition whisky by the dram at Jigger and Pony, 165 Tanjong Pagar Rd, Singapore 088539 for $79++ per 45ml.
