Bruichladdich 1986 / 30 Sherry: The Magnificent Seven
A dram with a history and a backstory that will be hard to beat, the 1986/30 is made up of the very last seven casks of ‘86 spirit.
Ultra-rare. This is elegant, floral Bruichladdich with intense, full-term sherry maturation. First filled into Oloroso butts in 1986, this spirit lay untouched in the loch-side warehouses until 2012 [already 26 years old], when then Master Distiller Jim McEwan decided to supercharge this sublime single malt by filling it into a privileged parcel of Pedro Ximinez butts from winemaker Jan Pettersen at bodega Fernando de Castilla.
Limited to 4,200 bottles, the 1986 is bottled at the distillery without chill-filtration or artificial colouring at the natural strength of 44.6% alc. vol.
