This landmark 1988 vintage from Bruchladdich has never been re-casked. It has matured over 30 years in the distilleries warehouses in the same wood it was originally filled into – refill bourbon and, unusually, rare refill squat hogsheads. The subtle influence of these refill oak casks has resulted in a delicate and measured relationship between spirit and wood, quietly cultivated over time. It was always understood that this small parcel of casks required no interference, no guiding hand; just a watchful eye and palate to see it through. It is definitive, old, Bourbon-aged Bruichladdich – some of the last of its kind. 

The resulting whisky has a polish copper colour in the glass. Floral aromas blend with sun dried hay, buttercups, primrose, and coconut oil. The palate is like a liquid velvet with citrus and coconut throughout. 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. This finish has mire marine elements from the maturation. A sea breeze with wood spice and fudge. 

One of the great vintages of Bruichladdich, the faith in the right wood and the right time to develop have allowed a superb spirit to show both its natural elegance and its strength of character.
