Bruichladdich Progressive Hebridean Distillers announced the first-ever Micro Provenance single cask release in Southeast Asia. The cask was bottled specially for Singapore and Malaysia, with only 144 bottles available in each country. The limited-release 2010 Micro Provenance cask features Bruichladdich – Unpeated, aged for ten years in second fill-Syrah barrels and bottled at cask strength (59.5% ABV).
The Micro Provenance range comprises an exploratory series of single cask bottlings hand-selected by Bruichladdich’s head distiller Adam Hannett to showcase the complexity and pedigree of each individual cask at the distillery.
Only a handful of single casks are selected each year from over 200 different cask types currently sitting in the warehouses at Bruichladdich distillery. Each cask in the rare Micro Provenance range is unique, and the final character of the whisky will depend on the age, storage location, cask type, and other variables.
Bottles of the Bruichladdich Micro Provenance cask 1898 will be available in extremely limited quantities in Singapore at The Straits Wine Company for $230 / 700ml. Bottles can be pre-reserved and will be available from March, with each purchase including a complimentary Bruichladdich Glencairn nosing glass.
Top bars in Singapore will also have limited stocks available for whisky enthusiasts who would like to taste a dram of the rare release, including The Single Cask, The Wall, Malts, Cooperage, The Writing Club, CU, The Joint and The Vault.
