This whisky comes from the Islay barley series from Bruichladdich. The distillery has been on a mission for many years now to showcase the phenomenon of “terroir” in single malt whisky – the belief that soil, climate, micro-climate, geographic orientation, natural influences and local weather systems will influence the quality and flavour profile of the spirit, making it a unique expression of a ‘place’. Bruichladdich Islay barley 2011 is distilled from barley grown on six different western and central Islay farms. This release uses barley from Coull, Rockside, Island, Mulindry, Starchmill and Cruach Farms.

Palate - Luxurious vanilla and coconut sweetness, oak and cereal with a fruity zest.
