Final Legacy release mixes oldest and rarest vintages

21 September, 2007

Bruichladdich Distillery is rolling out the final release in its Legacy series.

The bottlings come from some†of†the oldest and rarest casks in the company's vaults. The final release is legally called a 34 Year Old whisky, but that is the youngest age in the bottle, which mixes six vintages from 1965, 1970, and 1972.

Only 1,704 numbered bottles have been released, each one commanding a £200 price tag. The bottling features a painting of Hebridean seascapes by local†artist Frances Macdonald.

Production director Jim McEwan said: "It's a cracking dram, as can often be the case when the whole is even better than the individual component casks. It makes for a sensationally compelling whisky."
