Bruichladdich Black Art 5.1 1992 is the fifth incarnation of this now legendary single malt and the first by head distiller Adam Hannett. as enigmatic as ever, the composition of casks remains a mystery. This limited edition bottle is one of only 12,000 produced.
“Just before Master Distiller Jim McEwan retired in 2015 he took me to one side and handed me his recipe for the next iteration, Black Art 5. It was an emotional moment, the handing over of responsibility of one of the greatest drams we’ve ever created. I have to say I took the recipe from Jim’s hand and dutifully ignored it. This had to be my Black Art.” — Adam Hannett, Head Distiller
