The Last of Their Kind: Bruichladdich Launches the Rare Cask Series

Taste something extraordinary with Bruichladdich’s Rare Cask Series. After three generations, Head Distiller Adam Hannett has decided that these treasured rare, old single malt whiskys are finally ready to be released to the world. The 1984 Bourbon: All In is pure, old style Bruichladdich with notes of vanilla and butterscotch adding complexity to the gentle texture and finish. The 1985 Bourbon: Hidden Glory is a vintage you will never forget with its soft, syrupy texture with both fruity and nutty notes and a long finish. Our favourite, the ultra rare 1986 Sherry: The Magnificent Seven, is elegant and floral with a lovely, never-ending sweet (but not saccharine) finish.

Bruichladdich’s Rare Cask Series is now available in Singapore at La Maison du Whisky, 80 Mohamed Sultan Road, #01-10 The Pier, Singapore 239013 for S$1,599 nett per bottle and S$150++ per flight.
