Bruichladdich 'Islay Barley' 2011 Islay Single Malt Whisky 50% ABV
Bruichladdich's latest release of their vintage dated 'Islay Barley'. This is made from barley, of several varieties, grown on 8 farms on Islay. The whisky is distilled slowly with no peat, and aged in 75% Bourbon cask and 25% sweet wine cask. Although it is unpeated this has a very pure expression of its place. If it were a wine, it would be a Chateau Bottled Claret of the finest quality. No chill filtration, and no colour added, just a little spring water to bring it down to drinking strength of 50% ABV
Bruichladdich is Noble Grape's favourite distillery on Islay. The production is small, and the commitment to quality throughout the distillation and ageing is faultless. The distillery was brought back to life in 2000 by former wine merchant Mark Reynier who had the foresight to hire master distiller Jim McEwan to take charge of the production. Mark's wine background has left a legacy of wine culture at Bruichladdich with many bottlings featuring ageing in casks formerly used for ageing of fine wine.
Bruichladdich is the name used for the unpeated whiskies, whilst Port Charlotte is those which are heavily peated. There is also Octomore, a series of rare bottlings which are super heavily peated, the heaviest peated whiskies in all of Scotland.
The distillery is now owned by Remy Cointreau, but nothing has changed in the philosophy.
Noble Grape is a member of the 'Laddie Crew' and we will from time to time have access to rare bottlings, so keep calling back to look at our current range
