Bruichladdich has revealed Black Art Edition 11, the 11th annual release in its limited-edition series.


The 24 year old single malt has been created using pre-renaissance casks from the distillery which have been maturing exclusively on Islay for almost three decades.


Only head distiller Adam Hannett knows the definitive recipe to the expression, with the composition of the casks and origins remaining a mystery. Only the age statement, vintage and 44.2% ABV have been revealed.


The producers have described the expression as having aromas of citrus, with notes of dried fruits, barley sugar and a hint of leather on the palate.


Commenting on the release, Hannett said: “Each year I welcome the creation of Black Art with open arms. As a whisky maker, it is liberating to have complete creative freedom. It’s a chance to journey deep into our Islay warehouses and experiment, question, and push the realms of possibility.


“As a whisky brand committed to giving our customers as much information as we possibly can, each Black Art single malt signals a moment of total trust. It’s about putting faith in myself as the whisky maker, but also having trust in the time-honoured craft and the pursuit of unforgettable flavour.”


Black Art Edition 11 is available at the Bruichladdich website, and at selected specialist whisky retailers, at a price of £395.
