This is an organic release from Bruichladdich in that it is made from 100% organically grown Scottish barley. The growing season for this barley was 2008, and distillation commenced in 2009. It is matured for 8 years in a blend of American Whiskey casks. The Organic stamp is certified by the Biodynamic Association.
Sweet cream. Honey, lots of minerality and lemon. Fresh baked bread and fresh cracked pepper.
Medium mouth feel, cocoa and honey. Lightly smoky, faint ash. Fresh baked dough, lactic. No heat. Lemon zest is unmistakeable, faintly meaty.
Long, rich and sweet. Plums, tobacco, honey and brine. Lemon zest, ash, sea air and that lightly Laddie lactic funk.
Really nice. I'm a big fan of this, like previous Organics. The complexity is really well done here. Its also a steal if you can find this in the $50-$75 range.
