Bruichladdich Black Art 9.1

The Black Art series is shrouded in mystery, as the exact casks used to mature the single malt for 29 years are only known to Head Distiller Adam Hannett. It's an unpeated Islay whisky that was matured exclusively on Islay and was bottled at cask strength.

Inspired by an entrepreneurial flair and a youthful enthusiasm, the Harvey brothers began construction of the Bruichladdich (pronounced brook-laddie or broo-lah-dee) Distillery in 1881. The brothers were descendants of a dynastic whisky family — their ancestors had already owned distilleries in Scotland for over a century. Today, Bruichladdich Distillery (Bruichladdich means "rocky shore" in ancient Gaelic) remains situated on the shores of Loch Indaal on the island of Islay, and continues to use much of the original equipment installed by the Harvey brothers to craft a range of single malt whiskies that are trickle distilled, matured, and bottled on Islay.

The modern Bruichladdich Distillery is known as the most experimental and adventurous of the Scottish distilleries, implementing revolutionary, modern interpretations of time-honored ideas and challenging 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.

The Black Art series is shrouded in mystery, the lack of information a feature. The casks aged are kept a secret that is guarded by Head Distiller Adam Hannett ― in fact, nobody but him knows the exact cask types. This expression is the 9th in the series and Hannett's fifth. Distilled in 1992 and bottled in 2021, it's a 29-year-old unpeated single malt that is bottled without chill-filtration and coloring at cask strength: 88.2 proof. Only 12,000 bottles were produced, each being individually numbered.
