About Bruichladdich Black Art 06.1
Bruichladdich is an award-winning distillery employing generations of distilling knowledge and the principle of minimal intervention. Built in 1881 on the wild Scottish island of Islay, Bruichladdich distillery still uses the original Victorian equipment to create a range of single malt whiskies that are trickle distilled, matured and bottled solely on Islay by a skilled team of 78 men and women.
Bruichladdich implements revolutionary, modern interpretations of time-honored ideas and challenges the comfortable conventions of a whisky establishment. Rejecting the onset of modern automation and homogenization, Bruichladdich's Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, only considers production methods that place the quality of liquid above everything else.
This highly anticipated 6th release of the mystic single malt is just as enigmatic as the last. This Bruichladdich Black Art 6.1 26-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a cryptic composition of casks. The unpeated single malt has undergone a parallel journey with Bruichladdich's head distiller, Adam. Having worked closely with these casks in his early days in the warehouses, under the guidance of then Master Distiller Jim McEwan, Adam has had the honor of learning and developing alongside this spirit.
The substantial task of hand-selecting and blending the very best spirit of Bruichladdich now falls to him alone. There are some specifics that have been revealed to the public and we can share with you. For example, the 6th release of Black Art was distilled in 1990, aged for 26 years, was never chill filtered in the process, is free of artificial color additives and bottled at cask strength, 46.9% ABV. On the other hand, there are some details, Adam is keeping a secret. Cask type? Only Adam knows. In other words... It is for you to find out!
What we can tell you is that you can expect incredibly deep and complex rich notes of dark chocolate, fruits, figs, raisins and ginger.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
