Fishermans Retreat Edition No.6
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.
Colour Stunning Medium Amber/ Burnished copper.
Body Medium with a fresh vibrant Hebridean overture clearly highlighting the quality of the cask & the spirit.
