Bruichladdich Islay Single Malt Scotch 21 Years

From the same cask pedigree as Blacker Still but one year older, this opulent 21 year old Bruichladdich scales new heights and regrettably is unlikely to be repeated for quite some time due to the scarcity of good quality Oloroso sherry butts. This is a rare and exceptional signature Bruichladdich spirit. Oloroso sherry butts used to be widely available but are becoming increasingly difficult to find now as sherry sales and production continues to decline. Ironically as the availability of sherry casks declines Bruichladdich Islay Single Malt Scotch 21 Years is starting to use French wine casks in which to mature its whiskies; in fact it was the prolonged wars with France in the 19th century when British traders couldn’t source French casks that British merchants developed trading routes with Spain and other countries in Europe, which itself developed demand for sherry in the UK as an alternative to wine, and it was these butts which the scotch whisky industry used in the absence of French wine casks. The combination of the rich Oloroso sherry influence and full term maturation in Islay’s marine climate creates Bruichladdich’s richest full bodied whisky to date.
