Thank you again to /u/HawkI84 for a sample of this malt!
It’s extremely sad to hear that Jim McEwan is retiring. Not because I love his malts, more so because I think he needs to work until he dies.
Joking aside (that was a joke?), it’s sad to hear because rarely do we see a distillery bring out a whisky and just get the marketing right, all by itself. This is a rare whisky. It’s shrouded in mystery, with only Jimbo knowing what’s in it.
The outside perfectly matches this ideal. It looks to be something you’d be excited to see at your weekly Satanic orgy (I know I was). The dark box gives only a little away, along with the rest: It’s 22 years old, and we only know that because the Bruichladdich Black Art 3 webpage and bottle says so.
It’s aged in casks from “many different nations”…
