bruichladdich Sherry Classic

Bruichladdich Sherry Classic

When war with France brought an end to the supply of wine casks for whisky maturation, Jerez became the favoured source. Sherry cask maturation has long been a favourite with the whisky connoisseur, and this dram is classic Bruichladdich, with extra maturation in casks from legendary Jerez producer Fernando de Castilla – a marriage made in heaven!

Tasting Notes

Fino, Palo Cortado and Manzanilla casks co-exist beautifully with the vanilla sweetness of Bourbon barrels.

Winter sunset.

Close your eyes and inhale and you are immediately in Sanlucar de Barrameda enjoying tapas and a glass of chilled Manzanilla in the summer warmth of Andalucía. White raisins, sultanas and date syrup. Add a little water and these are joined by the light fruits of crisp sundried Scottish barley.

The salty traces of Bruichladdich and Manzanilla can be found by their citrus lemon flavour which has evolved from the salt’s journey into the oak staves which together bring an amazing texture to his classic Bruichladdich.

With 14 years average age this Laddie is in its prime, strong yet gentle. There is a uniqueness about this spirit with the solidarity and variety of Sherry casks coming together.

Siesta, laid back, mellow yellow, mañana. Don’t do today what you can put off until tomorrow.
