BRUICHLADDICH - 40 Year Old

Islay Malt Whisky

Bruichladdich 40 Year old vintage, the oldest Bruichladdich ever, distilled on 24th October 1964 - The oldest Vintage in their cellars.

Only 500 bottles available worldwide with a cask strength of 43.1%.

Islay bottled, caramel free and non-chill filtered for a fuller flavour, Bruichladdich Forty is the first ever release of their oldest whisky.

Fulsome, rich and exceedingly elegant with a smooth clover honey texture. Sensuous fragrances of butterscotch and mint, maple syrup and oak, candied almonds. Sweet dark vanilla, poached pear and cinnamon - lots of fantastic combinations.

Soft pear and mandarin orange aromas. The yellow sherbert tingle from 40 years of maturation on the wild Atlantic Coast.

The concentration of toasted oak bursts onto the palate with a rush of heat but slows down and turns mellow and magical. The mouthfeel is succulent soft fudge and exotic yellow fruits with a twist of lime and grapefruit, and is sublimely smooth.
