Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 45.1%

Bruichladdich Black Art 10.1 29-year-old was released at the tail end of 2022 and has already garnered a reputation as one of the best Black Art editions ever bottled by the distillery, rivalling the famous 4.1 released back in 2014. 

As ever, the exact formula for this Bruichladdich Black Art 10.1 remains a mystery, with almost all specific details about the casks selected by Bruichladdich Head Distiller Adam Hannett remaining entirely confidential.

All we know is that it's unpeated spirit, the casks were from the 'pre-renaissance' years at Bruichladdich and had a minimum age of 29 years old, and that this Black Art 10.1 has been bottled at its natural cask strength of 45.1% without colouring or chill filtration.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Colour: Mahogony.

Nose: 
Warm and inviting, a bright fruity note welcomes you. The fragrant toasted oak brings chocolate praline, cedar, leather and subtle hints of clove and nutmeg, before moving to fruit notes of sweet apricot jam, ripe melon, dark cherries and blackcurrants. There is a light touch of citrus with lemon zest and gooseberries dipped in honey, with delicate floral notes of geranium and honeysuckle balanced with a hint of iodine and leather.

Palate: Orange barley sugars, ginger nut biscuits and lemon meringue pie are followed by sweet apricot jam and marzipan. The toasted oak brings smooth chocolate and vanilla notes, beautifully complemented with syrupy fruit, raisins, plum and melon. Over time, iodine and a hint of coconut come through, with delicate oak spices of warming ginger and cinnamon. A velvet texture, the depth and balance of this single malt glides across the palate.

Finish: Tablet and smooth fudge bring a softness to the finish, while ripe soft fruits, subtle tobacco and a hint of ginger linger.

Character: Depth, complexity, knowledge and balance. The confidence and intuition used to guide this spirit is handed from one generation of distillers to the next. The choices made through years of maturation with casks of unrivalled provenance uniquely shape each expression of Black Art, never to be repeated.
