A heavily peated, sherry cask Bruichladdich bottled for The Whisky Agencys tenth anniversary series of whiskies.
The is from the famed parcel of barrels that were part of an investment opportunity in the early 2000s and before the first Port Charlotte (that is, heavily peated Bruichladdich) was released. So we can consider this Port Charlotte-grade peating levels.
This was distilled in 2003 and aged in sherry wood for 14 years when it was bottled at 52.9%.
German based The Whisky Agency is a world-renowned independent bottler that in 2018 is celebrating its tenth anniversary. To mark the occasion, they released a series of single casks under special labels earlier this year. A very small allocation has now been secured for Australia.
In most cases, only six bottles have made it to the country and with the demand from whisky bars around the country, even fewer have made it to retail. The Oak Barrels allocation is of one bottle each.
