The 5th release from this ongoing Islay Barley exploration series.
This is a thought provoking, uber-provenance single malt whisky distilled from barley grown by eight family farms on their remote Scottish island home. Barley varieties Optic and Oxbridge were planted across the breadth of the island in 2009. Bruichladdich distilled their spirit early in 2010 and it ran clean, rich and malty, before being filled into ex-Bourbon and French wine casks and matured in their warehouses by Loch Indaal.
On the nose the aromas are crisp apple, ripe gooseberry and peach balanced on toffee and toasted oak. On the palate this dram is a delight, young, clean and fresh with amazing texture.
