Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2010 Single Malt Scotch

Sold out
Bere Barley is a six-row heritage variety that has long since been forgotten from the modern world of standardized whisky making. Its revival into present-day has taken effort and resilience from an entire network of millers, growers, and agronomists. Bruichladdich's Bere project is dedicated to those like-minded souls, who have preserved a legacy and found modern applications in flavorful food and drinks, whatever the odds. This Bruichladdich Bere Barley was distilled in 2010 from a 2009 harvest, brought home by Peter, John, Magnus, Sydney and Duncan on the Orkney Islands.

The texture is like honey, rich and incredibly viscous. A range of sweet fruit and oak notes jostle for position, peaches in syrup again, honey, chocolate, cinder toffee and apricot jam, there is an amazing sweetness from the oak and malt that is unlike any other spirit, the Bere barley gives so much intensity of flavor and the spirit has drawn deep from the wood. On the finish there is an air of gentle grace as the softness of the fruit continues, pear and apple come through with the peach notes and offer another dimension. The oak and malt fade away slowly and leave you to contemplate an incredible experience.
