Bruichladdich 1985 / 32 Bourbon: Hidden Glory
32 years. A long journey with a few crossroads, a few considered and inspired decisions down the line. This dram comes from the final 22 casks of the legacy stock distilled back in 1985 by a previous generation of Bruichladdich stillmen.
This whisky was originally filled into gentle third fill Bourbon casks and lay untouched in warehouse 14 until 2012. Then master distiller Jim McEwan discovered this forgotten parcel and re-casked it into fresh bourbon adding depth and complexity. Now in 2017 the final coup de grace is a tantalising nuance in French oak from one of the greatest French Chateaux. Truly this is a dram with a story to tell.
Limited to 4,200 bottles, the 1985 is bottled at the distillery without chill-filtration or artificial colouring at the natural strength of 48.7% alc. vol.
