Bruichladdich The Organic 2010 70cl 50°
Bruichladdich The Organic 2010 is a whisky made from 100% organic barley from the Mid Coul farm in Dalcross, in the Highlands region of Scotland.
It has aged 8 years in old American oak barrels that contained Bourbon. The result is a rich and elegant Single Malt.
Unpeated, it was bottled in its natural colour and un-chill filtered.
Established in 1881, this Islay distillery faces Bowmore on the other side of the Loch Indaal.
In the past, it produced the less peated and lightest malts of the island, due to its four long-necked stills. As it almost disappeared in 1995, it was purchased by a group of investors who trusted Jim McEwan (former Bowmore employee) with the responsibility over distillation and blending. Since then, it has been a feast of fascinating novelties and releases…
A rare fact in Scotland, the Bruichladdich distillery (“Bruk-ladie”) uses a brewing vat in open air. Its onion-shaped stills have a very flat bottom and a long neck. The very light peated Bruichladdich Single Malt is unfairly underestimated. It reveals indeed a maritime origin with an iodized nose and a salty mouth flavour. Longer maturation imparts a full body to the whisky and makes it a gourmet, elegant malt. Bruichladdich is also perfect when aged in sherry casks.
The distillery produces also two heavily peated whiskies: Port Charlotte and Octomore.
