About Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2012

Inspired by an entrepreneurial flair and a youthful enthusiasm, the Harvey brothers began construction of the Bruichladdich (pronounced brook-laddie or broo-lah-dee) Distillery in 1881. The brothers were descendants of a dynastic whisky family — their ancestors had already owned distilleries in Scotland for over a century. Today, Bruichladdich Distillery (Bruichladdich means "rocky shore" in ancient Gaelic) remains situated on the shores of Loch Indaal on the island of Islay, and continues to use much of the original equipment installed by the Harvey brothers to craft a range of single malt whiskies that are trickle distilled, matured, and bottled on Islay.

The modern Bruichladdich Distillery is known as the most experimental and adventurous of the Scottish distilleries, implementing revolutionary, modern interpretations of time-honored ideas and challenging the comfortable conventions of a whisky establishment. Rejecting the onset of modern automation and homogenization, Bruichladdich's Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, only considers production methods that place the quality of liquid above everything else.

Knowing full well the importance of the Islay barley they use, the Islay Barley series delves deep into this essential raw material and the unique Islay terroir. This non-peated expression was distilled in 2012 using barley from 8 Islay farms, then matured in fresh American oak (75%) and refill French oak (25%). This lets the terroir-driven whisky shine with Bruichladdich's signature floral, briny, and nuanced spirit shine in its full glory. The 8-year-old whisky is bottled at 100 proof without chill filtering or coloring.

The nose is light, delicate, and floral with creamy vanilla, honey, fruit, and citrus aromas. The sweetness of the Islay grain comes through beautifully along with hints of oak spice, toffee, and chocolate. On the palate, you'll find cereal, oak, as well as Bruichladdich's characteristic fruity and floral notes, as well as a pleasant creaminess with brown sugar and toffee. There's brine on the finish with salted caramel, charred oak, and fruit.
