Originally release for the Travel retail market, Bruichladdich’s 1990/25 is a 25 year old single malt distilled in 1990 In collaboration with winemaker Jan Pettersen. This whisky enjoyed an intriguing maturation in some rather illustrious casks on their journey to perfection.
Batch one: was aged for 17 years in former bourbon barrels, 5 years in Bourdeau Grand Cru barrels and 4 years in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.
Batch 2: was aged for 18 years in refilled sherry barrels and 7 years in Oloroso sherry casks. After 25 long years, the reunification of the batches took place.
This dram is truly sublime offering great complexity, plenty of richness and delectable sweetness with and leather mouthfeel. Highly recommended!
