Bruichladdich 25 year old Black Art 1994 (Edition 07.1), 48.4%

Price: $430 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The nose reveals blackcurrant, damsons, black pepper, dark sherry, coconut, and nougat. Very smooth on the palate, quite full, with early oak, then leather, tropical fruits, honey, and resin notes from old component whiskies. A long finish, with mango, raisin, hazelnut, and lots of spice. Complex and intriguing. (12,000 bottles)
