Black Art 6.1 has a special significance for Bruichladdich’s new head distiller. From the moment Jim McEwan began supervising his protege, Adam Hannett was in contact with the casks for this bottling. In a way, they’re Hannett’s babies, having grown up with him since he took over. Not surprisingly, when the time came to choose the casks to be batched for Black Art 6.1, it was an exciting time. It’s also the aspect of whisky creating he loves most: “There are no fixed rules, you follow your instinct.”Information regarding the maturation for 6.1 has been a well-kept secret. In fact all we know about it is that it was matured for 26 years. It’s also unpeated and limited to 18,000 bottles. Notes from Bruichladdich… Nose: There is a huge depth and richness on initial nosing. Roll the glass through your fingers to rouse the aromas and rich, black charred oak with blackberry jam, dark chocolate, raisin, plum, elderberry and apple appear. Notes of marzipan and lemon meringue pie give sweetness and tell of the Bruichladdich DNA working with the casks. Cedarwood and brown sugar come through as the whisky opens.
Palate: The richness and vitality of the oak and the fruit is astounding. The soft orchard fruit of the spirit comes through after opening a little, sitting beautifully alongside fragrant vanilla custard. Sip again and taste the dark fruits; date, fig, raisin and chocolate, crystallised ginger and floral red rose. Impossible to define as a particular style this dram twists and changes constantly, each layer revealed adds to the mystery of how this whisky was created. Layers of honeycomb, soft fruit, praline, tobacco coconut and a sublime texture tell of its class. Finish: Chocolate, apricot, pineapple, classic exotic fruits from well-aged Bruichladdich tell of the quality and balance of oak and spirit. The oak speaks of its quality now with brown sugar, ginger nut biscuits, toffee, orange scented caramel and a velvet tobacco finish. 46.9% Alc./Vol.
