1 Bruichladdich 2002 Sherry Hogshead #427 / Cask in storage at Bruichladdich
This Bruichladdich ex-Sherry hogshead cask was filled on 28th June 2002 and is currently maturing at a bonded warehouse at Bruichladdich.
Like its island neighbour Bunnahabhain distillery, Bruichladdich has traditionally been an un-peated single malt, mostly owing to its requirements by the blenders who owned it. The last of these was Whyte & Mackay, who eventually shut it down in 1995, deeming it surplus to requirements. They sold the distillery to Murray McDavid in 2001, who launched the peated Port Charlotte and heavily-peated Octomore single malts in 2006 and 2008. A recommissioned Lomond still also now produces the popular Botanist gin there.
This cask was regauged in May 2022.
This equates to 240 bottles at cask strength.
All relevant paperwork will accompany this purchase. Ownership of the cask will be transferred once payment is processed post auction. Any costs relating to storage, removal from storage, bottling and duty/tax payments will become the responsibility of the new owner.
