1985 Bruichladdich DNA Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1120387

The third edition of this rare limited release, the 1985 DNA combines some of Bruichladdish's greatest American oak-Bourbon casks and the last of the sherry butts from the mid-1980s. Distiller's notes: "Nose: Multiple sensory impressions: opening with the classic Oloroso overtones of sultanas, dates, raisins, sweet barley sugar, and a hint of tangerine zest. A little later, beautiful drifts of rich vanilla and nutty nougat...The oak mellowness gives an irresistible Spanish passion, a remarkable bouquet ending on sea breezes and wild flowers - aromas that whiskies matured on Scotland's west coast can have. Palate: It's magical on the palate; the flavours lie deep in the spirit, cocooned in the shelter of the oak for over 30 years. They spread gently over the taste buds with peat fire warmth, and then without hesitation, the sherry takes the lead...Finish: A lingering finish, so gentle and soft, as though it does not want to leave. Like it was saying 'don't forget me' and that we must listen and try our hardest to distil such beautiful spirits...Mood: Planned selfish solitude: no distractions, no obligations."

This exceptional whisky has effortless class and poise and tasting it is an experience that I won't forget. The lovely brine and oil character of Bruichladdich is here in the Dna and I think a good blind taster would identify the distillery. It is refreshingly unadorned and the well aged, mellow malt is left to speak for itself. This kind of Scotch is getting rarer and rarer!
