Bruichladdich 1988/30

Another stunning release in Bruichladdich's Rare Cask series! This 1988 vintage single malt was filled into a combination of refill bourbon casks and lesser-spotted refill squat hogsheads, where it stayed for three whole decades. Eventually it was bottled at 46.2% ABV, with a release of just 6,000 bottles.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose Hugely floral, sun dried hay, coconut oil, buttercups and primrose. Vanilla fudge, porridge with golden syrup and a sweet citrus tang. Over time the coconut becomes stronger and dried apricot and sherbet come through more. A definitive American oak style, toasted oak and vanilla caramel hold the fruit from the spirit.

Palate Like liquid velvet laced with coconut and citrus. Honeyed granola, toasted malt and mellow toasted oak take a hold of your palate. A classic Bruichladdich style, elegant and floral at first before allowing the oak to sweep in with pipe tobacco and fudge. A second sip brings some fruit, ripe pineapple, mango and hint of mint.

Finish The finish shows a little more of the marine element of the maturation. A sea breeze with wood spice and fudge. The toasted oak goes the distance too and seems to bring along a little mango and aniseed to finish.
