Bruichladdich, Islay Barley, Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2012 (Scotland) 750ML
Producer Notes: Heavily Peated Islay Single Malt, made exclusively from 100% local Islay grain. Islay Barley was Bruichladdich’s earliest introduction to the distillery’s intense focus on ingredients transparency.
Cultivated from barley harvested from eight different farms on the island, each regional Islay Barley release showcases the influence of a merciless Atlantic environment on Islay-grown grain, delicately matched against the dry smoke of the spirit. Matured in first fill bourbon casks and second fill wine casks.
Notes of vanilla, milk chocolate and black pepper, wrapped in earthy smoke.
Whisky Advocate, 93 Points: “Distilled from barley grown on eight western and central Islay farms in 2011. Light tropical fruit notes of kiwi and melon, along with pine nuts, ripe banana, lemon peel, and fresh hay, with excellent minerality and some salinity. A honeyed, refined palate with mature wood notes, espresso, porridge, peaches, and apricots. The finish offers vanilla cream, cinnamon spice, dark chocolate shavings, caramel, peach, and a dash of sea salt."
