Lithe, sleek with intense earthy peat notes, balanced by the presence of malt sugar, vanilla and oak. The scents of Islay in a glass- The ozone fragrance of the sea, bog myrtle from the moss and peat smoke in the cold night air.
It's the 2010 vintage of Bruichladdich's The Organic expression, distilled exclusively with organic barley from Mid Coul, near Inverness. The liquid was matured on Islay in American oak casks which previously housed bourbon, until it was bottled at 50% ABV after it was organically certified by the Biodynamic Association!
An eight-year-old limited-edition Islay single malt from Bruichladdich, distilled in 2010 using a 2009 harvest of Bere barley grown throughout the Orkney Islands. On the nose aromas of cereal, malt and porridge are balanced by intense fruit, peaches in syrup, lemon meringue pie, oak, honey, vanilla, coffee and coconut. The palate offers notes of malted barley, honey, peaches, chocolate, cinder toffee and apricot jam.
