2002 Bruichladdich 20 Year Old "Dramfool" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) (Previously $350)

SKU #1703401 Jim McEwan

Outer quote mark Cask Type - First Fill Bourbon Barrel - ABV 59.0%. Colour - Harvest Gold. Body - Smooth Mellow and in prime condition. Aromas - Classic Islay without the smoke which allows the barley/oak notes to shine and highlights that brilliant Atlantic freshness. Hints of ripe Guava & melon work in harmony with the crispness of the malt & the oak which brings that mellow soft sweetness. It’s an irresistible combination, almost like an Atlantic rainbow of aromatics in harmony with the Island & its unique location. Taste - Wow!! Its so clean and flavourful. The texture is amazing giving the taste buds a spiritual experience like no other. The sweetness of the malt sugars is held beautifully in a cradle of spicy oak from the Bourbon cask. The fruitiness is down to slow distillation and long fermentation, and the fresh vibrant mouthfeel due to its maturing on the Atlantic Coast. The main prize here goes to the Distillery team who truly understand the art of distillation.. Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

From the bottler: "The 55th Dramfool release (perhaps) crowns a year of remarkable bottlings, but who knows what December might hold! We are proud to be bottling our 20 year old Bruichladdich distilled in 2002, just one year after the re-opening of the distillery we all have come to love so much. Following on from our sister 20 year old Port Charlotte’s earlier this year what more can we say but we are delighted to share these all with you. Fully matured in 1st fill bourbon barrel, it has worked some magic over the decades. Thanks to Bruichladdich’s policy of filling casks at a higher than industry norm of 63.5% it has still retained a high strength of 59.0%! A powerhouse whisky from the, then, newly reinstated team of Bruichladdich Filled on 26/08/2002 and bottled on 11/10/2022 at 20 years old."
