Driven by the determination of their partner farmers, Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2013 is the eighth edition of locally grown unpeated single malt. Although each harvest reveals subtle nuances depending on the season, this complex single malt is characterized by its pronounced barley flavour, with accents of citrus and salt. This latest vintage of unpeated Bruichladdich Islay Barley comes from the 2012 harvest, distilled in 2013. The barley used was grown on seven farms on the island, by Hunter Jackson at Cruach Farm, Andrew and Donald Jones at Coull Farm, Mark French at Rockside Farm, Ian McKerrell at Island Farm, Alistair Torrance at Mulindry, Raymond Fletcher at Dunlossit and finally Raymond Stewart at Sunderland Farm. The fruit of their efforts was aged in ex-American and European oak barrels for eight years.
Nose: A whiskey of stunning freshness and purity. It’s a farandole of scents that emanates from the glass. First, notes of citrus and honey, followed by scents of stone fruit, dried apricot and ripe peaches. Sweet notes of marzipan, yellow flowers and vanilla pods give way to scents of spices, cereals and sea breeze.
Palate: Aging in oak exquisitely enhances the fruity notes of this whisky, whose delicate sweetness and creamy texture dress the palate like velvet. The balance between the sweet aromas of ripe stone fruits, vanilla, caramel and brown sugar is perfect. Bottled at the perfect time, this Islay Barley cuvée captures the very essence of our island.
Finish: The finish testifies to the quality of the distillation. The subtle marine flavor, combined with the sweet tastes of citrus and oak-derived honey, speaks to the history and origin of our whiskey. A natural whiskey without cold filtration, for a long, pleasant and unforgettable finish.
