Product Details

Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2010 is the fifth release in an ongoing Islay barley exploration series. It is made from unpeated Islay barley harvested in a single year (2009) from eight family farms. Optic and oxbridge barley varieties were used. Distilled in 2010, this single malt matured mostly in first-fill bourbon casks with some former Rivesaltes, Jurançon, and Banyuls (French dessert wines) casks used.
Nose
The floral nature of Bruichladdich spirit is immediately to the fore, its purity and openness at once refreshing and stimulating. A sea breeze filled with a delicate floral bouquet drifts through before the beauty of young, clean Bruichladdich emerges with crisp sweet apple, ripe gooseberry and peach. The malted barley brings brown sugar and toffee, while aromas from the toasted oak are calm and restrained as a backdrop, allowing the malt and spirit to shine. Butterscotch, spice and creamy vanilla custard give more clues to the tremendous quality of the casks we filled with this precious spirit.
Palate
The mouthfeel, the viscosity, is a delight. Trickle distillation is a slow and simple technique but fundamental to producing such quality. The texture is muscular and rich, the natural oils coaxed gently from the grain temper the spice to allow its character, its young, clean, fresh charm to flourish.

Appreciate the expertise of the maltster, the cooper’s craft and the experience and patience of the distillers. Consider the effort and expertise involved and the provenance and heritage of this exceptional spirit on the palate and you will be rewarded with a sensory experience rarely encountered.
Finish
This expression from our distillery, our land, our terroir, will leave you in no doubt as to its island of origin. The finish is ozone fresh, with zesty lemon and that note of windswept salt that can only have come from maturation by our Atlantic shoreline.
