2010 Bruichladdich Islay Barley Unpeated Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Islay, SCOTLAND
$110.00 Bottle
  • ABV 50%

At Bruichladdich, they’re convinced that the origin of barley effects flavour, and that a whisky’s taste profile is affected by the varieties of barley used, where it’s grown, and by annual climatic variation. Hence, the "Islay Barley" series of unpeated.malts offering a provenance that varies ”much like vintages of fine wine.”

For the 2010 edition, Optic and Oxbridge varieties were planted across the breadth of the island in 2009; gathering the harvests together has resulted in this first 'regional Islay release' - the fifth in the Islay Barley series since it commenced in 2004. This all natural whisky (non chill filtered and colouring free) was matured in ex-Bourbon and French wine casks.

Other reviews… Quantities of Optic and Oxbridge barley varieties were grown on eight Islay family farms during 2009, and the following year this grain was distilled, then matured in bourbon and French wine casks. The nose offers ginger, melon, malt, sweet (lit) pipe tobacco, freshly baled straw, resin, vanilla, and spice. Chewy in the mouth; oily, with toffee spices and youthful oak notes. The finish features oysters with lemon squeezed over them. 90 points
