Wine bars make a comeback
Bruichladdich’s Rare Cask Series sees the final bottling of whiskies dubbed The Last of Their Kind. Head distiller Adam Hannett, who’s just slightly older than these whiskies, have deemed the 1984/32, 1985/32 and 1986/30 ready to leave the warehouse. The first is bourbon aged with fruit and butterscotch complexity, the second is third fill bourbon cask with a final lay in French wine oak, and the third in richly sherried style is the most sought after, in Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez butts. $1,599 per bottle or $150 per tasting flight at La Maison du Whisky, #01-10 The Pier, 80 Mohamed Sultan Road.
