Bruichladdich Islay Barley is made from chalice barley, and then harvested in September and distilled in November of 2006.
NOSE: When you first inhale the bouquet it’s like the “The Hills are Alive”, with aromas of yellow flowers in bloom on forest river-banks and heather-covered moorlands, barley fields shimmering yellow and gold, orchards filled with ripe fruits, all embraced by the warm, westerly ocean breeze. This is the beauty of young Bruichladdich spirit; you can reach into its soul and transport yourself to this amazing Island simply by closing your eyes and inhaling. It’s a remarkable harmonious bouquet.
PALATE: The olfactory concentration continues onto the palate. On tasting, you will discover that squeeze of lemon, honey, pear and green apple, little hints of tangerine, chocolate, light notes of marzipan, cinnamon and sweet, oaky, vanilla. The harmonious freshness of barley and wild flowers rising on that irresistible marine presence unique to the Islands of Scotland.
