Bruichladdich 1986/30 Sherry: The Magnificent Seven
A DRAM WITH A HISTORY AND A BACKSTORY THAT WILL BE HARD TO BEAT, OUR 1986/30 IS MADE UP OF OUR VERY LAST SEVEN CASKS OF ‘86 SPIRIT. Ultra-rare. This is our elegant, floral Bruichladdich with intense, full-term sherry maturation. First filled into Oloroso butts in 1986, this spirit lay untouched in our loch-side warehouses until 2012 [already 26 years old], when our then Master Distiller Jim McEwan decided to supercharge this sublime single malt by filling it into our 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.
