The tenth edition of this limited edition series, Black Art Edition 10 encapsulates the enigmatic alchemy of whisky making; with a reliance on nature, craftsmanship and the passing of time. The barley and cask type remain a mystery, with the final recipe undisclosed.

Whisky making is an ancient art, one that has intrigued and captivated for centuries. Black Art 10 is testament to this elusive mastery.

Pulling exclusively from Bruichladdich Distillery pre renaissance casks which have been patiently maturing on our island home for almost three decades, this finite single malt is secretly created by our Head Distiller, Adam Hannett. What happens inside each cask, under the darkness of the warehouse, remains a mystery.

Putting our trust in Adam, he is given complete creative freedom to create this incredible whisky. With no rules and no restrictions, Black Art Edition 10.1 is unique and unrepeatable. A chance to experiment and push the boundaries of possibility, only Adam knows what has gone into crafting the precious 29 year old single malt.

Depth, complexity, knowledge and balance. The confidence and intuition used to guide this spirit is handed from one generation of distillers to the next. The choices made through years of maturation with casks of unrivalled provenance uniquely shape each expression of Black Art, never to be repeated.

"The nose is filled with apricots, orange peels, and flaky pastry. The taste brings those fruit notes once again, but there's a pleasant note of nutty barley notes and mild spice mixed in. Further tastes bring out some gentle oak, but once again the fruit notes (some dried and cooked jammy notes) come through here. Finish is moderate plus. This is more of an elegant sipper, not a powerhouse, but no less effective. Put on your favorite jazz album and sip the night away." - Stephanie Moreno, Distiller

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Mahogany

Nose: Warm and inviting, a bright fruity note welcomes you. The fragrant toasted oak brings chocolate praline, cedar, leather and subtle hints of clove and nutmeg, before moving to fruit notes of sweet apricot jam, ripe melon, dark cherries and blackcurrants. There is a light touch of citrus with lemon zest and gooseberries dipped in honey, with delicate floral notes of geranium and honeysuckle balanced with a hint of iodine and leather.

Palate: Orange barley sugars, ginger nut biscuits and lemon meringue pie are followed by sweet apricot jam and marzipan. The toasted oak brings smooth chocolate and vanilla notes, beautifully complemented with syrupy fruit, raisins, plum and melon. Over time, iodine and a hint of coconut come through, with delicate oak spices of warming ginger and cinnamon. A velvet texture, the depth and balance of this single malt glides across the palate.

Finish: Tablet and smooth fudge bring a softness to the finish, while ripe soft fruits, subtle tobacco and a hint of ginger linger.
