Since its inception in 2012, Black Art is the antithesis to Bruichladdich’s traditional commitment to total transparency. Where everything from exact recipe, cask type and specific barley varietal is usually revealed, Black Art is created in total secrecy, with the consumer putting complete trust in Bruichladdich’s Head Distiller, Adam Hannett.

- Rich tawny
- Dried fruits, leather, and a hint of citrus immediately open on the nose, followed by a fresh sea breeze. Sweet fruit and floral notes with poached pear, delicate rose hip syrup, black cherry, and sweet mango. The complexity of the single malt is apparent as the aromas continue to open, with cedar and mellow oak complemented with butterscotch, praline, honey, and a hint of cinnamon. Warming oats are balanced with fragrant notes of rose and pear drops.
- Dried fruits, dates, raisins, barley sugar, leather and oak open on the palate, followed by butterscotch sweetness, praline and hints of coconut and fresh citrus. Sweet apple and pear are married with toasted oak, warming wood spice, dark plums and marzipan, with layers of depth opening with each sip.
- Oak, dried fruit, with Christmas cake notes of sultanas, fig, marzipan, and lingering honey adding to the beautifully rounded finish.
