The fourth incarnation of the now legendary Black Art is more enigmatic than ever. The composition of casks remains a mystery to all bar its creator.
Working with the very finest American and French oak to explore that most esoteric relationship between spirit and wood, Black Art is master distiller Jim McEwan’s personal voyage into the heart of Bruichladdich. Take a look at the Youtube clip below

Producer's Notes

Character: The marriage of the spirit from truly magical casks has created a sensational texture, both sleek and suggestive. Lose yourself in the sweet, fruity, mellow oakiness of this bewitching spirit.

Colour: Albuquerque sunset.

Nose: The aromas rise and mingle beautifully creating an olfactory symphony in your hand. Little notes of rich, plump, crystallised grapes flirt over heavier notes of honey. Go deeper and you will find the tang of lemon and lime - This is the DNA of our Bruichladdich spirit; the terroir of ancient peat lands and Islay’s exposed coastline, living, breathing proof that magic really does exist.

Palate: Without water the first thought that enters my head is wow! This is strong and my cheeks flush, my eyes water but my heart is in heaven. Its so, so mellow and mature and yes, you can find all of the aromatics on the taste buds and more!!! I get chocolate and coconut, tangerine and papaya and a wonderful infusion of barley sugar with a pinch of cinnamon and aniseed. Completely mesmerising.

Finish: Grilled peach and apricot sprinkled with demerera sugar, quite outstanding.

Mood: Drink whenever you wish, with whomever you wish. The last to leave will be the angels who danced with the devil and won.
