1992 Bruichladdich 21 Year Old K&L Exclusive Signatory Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1170223

Now that Bruichladdich has been purchased by Remy and the older stocks have become harder to find, we just couldn't pass up the opportunity to bottle a 20+ year old hogshead of the unpeated Islay distillery -- especially for a price this hot! At 53% cask strength the malt is bold enough to offer a bit of a kick, yet reduced enough to allow the more delicate side of the whisky to shine. The salty, supple notes are apparent right on the initial sip, bringing back memories of Bruichladdich's "Waves" expression, albeit with much more complexity and age. The stonefruits are soft and enticing, with more saline, maritime notes undulated under "waves" of richness and oily textures. If you were ever a fan of Bruichladdich from the old Susan Purnell days here at K&L, then this whisky is like a nostalgic ride down memory lane. This is the flavor that many a K&L customer cut their teeth upon, and at the price we're selling it for, it's not all that much more than it cost back then. For all the whiskies we taste in Scotland each year, this is the flavor profile I've found most difficult to duplicate -- mature Island whisky without smoke. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

This single malt tastes like it comes from a specific location. It has complex aromas that hint of the sea and of being on an island. The island experience continues with saline and enticing musty flavors. This is one of the most interesting and pleasing single malts that I have tasted recently.
