Dramfool’s 57th and its sister 58th release are a classic pairing of from Islay. While its sister release, in first fill bourbon, may be the classic of Islay, the 58th release fully matured in a first fill Rivesaltes Barrique must be a considered the modern classic style. Since the 2001 re-opening, high quality wine casks proved the corner stone of the new period of Bruichladdich and helped build its army of fans internationally.

It is with great excitement we release this fine example of the ‘new classic of Islay’. Distilled in 2010 and bottled at 11 years old, it is in its natural state with no added colour and cask strength of 63.1% we have a (very) limited outturn of just 149 bottles.

Not that we encourage over enjoyment of whisky, but sitting with such similar spirits and tasting them side by side certainly shows not just the difference cask choice makes, but the genius of the team behind Bruichladdich and the remarkable breadth of whiskies they have produced.

Tasting notes by Jim McEwan

Colour - Amber/Bronze

Aromas - The bouquet is generous, opening on red fruits; cherries & plump red grapes encapsulated in a halo of French oak which blends beautifully with the sweetness of the malted barley. The Islay character creates a Hebridean overture with a marine freshness matured on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

Taste - Add a drop of water and the sweetness of the malted barley in harmony with the oak evolve beautifully bringing the Islay character and personality to remind you of the spirit’s DNA, a true Islander distilled by a team of dedicated men to whom distilling is in their DNA. No computers, no E150, no chill filtration and no BS!! It’s a warm generous spirit that truly reflects the personality of the Island and its Distilleries.
