This release from Bruichladdich is made entirely from organic barley grown at Mid Coul Farm in the north of Scotland just east of Inverness. The barley was harvested in 2009 and the whisky was distilled the following year using Islay spring water. Aged in American oak casks which previously held bourbon. The whisky is non-chillfiltered and has no color added. Bottled at 50% ABV.
The nose starts on hints of burlap, butter and whole grain bread, although there is room for some fruitiness too, like apple cider and galia melon. The palate is creamy with a pleasant initial fruitiness followed by warming spices, but also a fudge-like sweetness. A very enjoyable, even top-notch experience.
