Bruichladdich Islay Barley
70cl / 50% abv
The barley used to make this whisky was grown especially for the distillery in the Coull, Rockside, Island, Mulindry, Starchmill and Cruach farms on Islay itself. Bottled at 7 years old, this expression is an ultra-provenance Islay single malt.
Nose: fruity and floral with peach, pear, apricot and orange before oak and cereal emerge with vanilla.
Palate: soft and creamy with plenty of barley sugar, elderflower and honeysuckle atop marine notes and a pinch of black pepper, with vanilla and coconut appearing towards the finish.
Finish: rich and fruity with a touch of sea spray lingering.
