Description

Harvested in 2006 and distilled in 2007, the grain for this iconic whisky was grown for Bruichladdich in the Minister’s Field at Rockside Farm by Mark and Rohaise French.

A painfully slow distillation to gently coax the delicate oils and flavour compounds from the barley, coupled with casks carefully selected to preserve those flavours, has resulted in a whisky of exceptional complexity.

Bruichladdich believe terroir matters. Distinctive, authentic and unique, this is land and dram united.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Fresh, fruit notes of orange peel with a touch of minerality. Then creaminess comes in, with lemon-meringue-pie aromas.
Palate: Very fresh on the palate, with some subtle citrus notes. Next the rich creaminess takes over but despite the high ABV, adding water isn’t necessary here.
Finish: Tingling saltiness balances well with the rich, creamy notes.

Taste Test

so, so young! Maybe Islay Barley, but it is still pretty green; very odd molecule of smoke here and there; juicy youthful barley, the final echoes of new make but otherwise absolutely pure, uncomplicated malt. Spices little the palate, as do some hardening sugars and softer caramel; a few cocoa, mildly minty notes, though this seems more like the remnants of new make than cask; clean and chirpy. Great fun
