100% Scottish organic barley, slow trickle distillation and premium American oak have produced the creamiest whisky we have ever tasted. In Victorian times, when Bruichladdich Distillery was built, all Scottish barley was organically grown. The relationship between distiller, farmer and soil was intimate and enduring. These ties were lost as industrialised farming cut through ancient synergies and an age of super efficient blandness was born.
Nose – Opens on a light almond note with a twist of candied lemon, followed by the magic of toasted barley. Floral and fruit aromas intermingle beautifully with the toffee sweetness that comes from American Oak casks before the spirit opens once again with drifts of succulent papaya and kiwi.
Palate – The texture is sensational, the spirit gliding over the palate like warm syrup. There is a real sweetness on the front of the palate with barley sugars, honey, almonds, green jelly beans, and pear drops all splashed with a squeeze of fresh lemon and balanced by the crispness of malted barley.
Finish – An intensity and definition of flavour that is unparalleled. Incredibly fresh, giving an unforgettable palate experience that leaves the tastebuds tingling.
