Bruichladdich Black Art 1990 Unpeated Islay - Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

by Bruichladdich

THIS FOURTH INCARNATION OF THE NOW LEGENDARY BLACK ART IS AS ENIGMATIC AS EVER, THE COMPOSITION OF CASKS A MYSTERY TO ALL BUT ITS CREATOR.

Character: The marriage of the spirit from truly magical casks has created a sensational texture, both sleek and suggestive. Lose yourself in the sweet, fruity, mellow oakiness of this bewitching spirit.

Palate: Without water the first thought that enters my head is wow! This is strong and my cheeks flush, my eyes water but my heart is in heaven. Its so, so mellow and mature and yes, you can find all of the aromatics on the taste buds and more!!! I get chocolate and coconut, tangerine and papaya and a wonderful infusion of barley sugar with a pinch of cinnamon and aniseed. Completely mesmerizing.
