Following on from the ground breaking Organic 2003 vintage, this release is a multi-vintage vatting in which has Jim McEwan bringing together the finest organic barley from three of Bruichladdich's farmers and partners, Sir William Roberts of Mains of Tullibardine, William Rose at Mid Coul and Neil Scobie at Coulmore.
This whisky was awarded “Exceptional” status and three stars in 2011 by the tasters of the two prestigious French restaurant guides, Gault Millau and Michelin Superior Taste Awards – the only spirit to be so recognised. And these people know their stuff!
Character: An elegant, composed and stylishly vibrant spirit that showcases the absolute finesse, purity, definition and elegance of organically grown barley.
Colour: Late summer barley.
Nose: Opens on a light almond note with a twist of candied lemon. Followed by the magical aromatics of toasted barley, floral and fruit notes with a hint of lemon honey intermingling beautifully. Toffee sweetness comes from American oak cask and as the spirit opens little drifts of succulent papaya, melon and kiwi can be found.
Palate: The texture is sensational, the spirit gliding over the palate like warm syrup. The taste buds love the purity and the sensational clarity of flavours being presented. A real sweetness on the front palate, barley sugar, honey almonds, green jelly beans, pear drops all splashed with fresh lemons and balanced by the crispness of malted barley.
Finish: An intensity and definition of flavour that is unparalleled. Incredibly fresh giving an unforgettable palate experience that leaves the taste buds tingling and overwhelmed.
Mood: Mischievous. Coy, flirtatious, Lolita. A breast-surging, bodice ripper: breathlessly virtuous.
