Aged in a combination of bourbon and French-wine casks, the Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2010 uses 100% Scottish barely and is un-chill filtered and of natural colour. Bottled at 50% ABV and crafted with Islay spring water, this whisky boasts aromas of the sea with white pepper spice and subtle notes of vanilla. On the palate it is full and rich with fruit sweetness very well balanced by hints of spice. A crisp finish full of berry fruit and citrus completes a very well-rounded experience.

Nothing - sip straight over ice
BRUICHLADDICH was built by Barnett Harvey in 1881 and a mere 5 years later the Bruichladdich Distillery Company was founded. The gentle character of the Bruichladdich’s whisky can be attributed to the milder weather conditions at its locality, sheltered as it is from Mother Nature by the Rhinns, the rugged Islay mountain range. Today, the range of whiskies produced is vast; many cask finishes, or 'ACE'd (additional cask enhancement) whiskies, have been released as well as the formerly mentioned peated offerings and the ‘Laddie’s’ future certainly looks very promising.
