Description

The Bruichladdich 25 Year Old Yellow Submarine, WMD III (Whisky of Mass Destruction III) The Legend Resurfaces is a 25 year old, single malt that has been matured in Refill Sherry & Bourbon, Spanish red wine casks.

This is the third release in the series that was created as a tribute to the early days at Bruichladdich; while searching through eBay back in 2016 Bruichladdich discovered a yellow submarine for sale that was identical to the bright yellow Royal Navy Submersible that Islay fisherman John Baker landed back in 2005 - Bruichladdich had to have it. 

To celebrate this find, Head Distiller Adam Hannett hunted out the of the original 1991 spirit which is now an incredible 25 years old and presented it as "WMD III The Legend Resurfaces".  This is one of only 1,991 individual numbered bottles available.
