Fishermans Retreat Edition No.6 Bruichladdich Rivesaltes French Wine Cask
Our Edition 6 is a 12 year old single cask Bruichladdich, which has spent its life in a Rivesaltes French wine cask on the Isle of Islay.
These bottles were hand filled by whisky legend Jim McEwan and owner of the Fisherman??s Retreat Hervey Magnall Snr.
With only 249 bottles produced this is a very unique and limited single malt, what further adds to its uniqueness is that the tasting notes where also written by Jim McEwan who describes its taste as…
At 50.4% the addition of a little spring water allows the spirit to reveal some beautiful aromas. Initially, you are welcomed by the fruitiness of pomegranate & plump ripe grapes with floral hints of honeysuckle & gorse in bloom, followed by an updraft of heather and moorland flowers with coastal drift of Atlantic breezes.
Stunning Medium Amber/ Burnished copper.
Medium with a fresh vibrant Hebridean overture clearly highlighting the quality of the cask & the spirit.
