Bere barley is one of the oldest cereal crops in Britain. It may have been brought over by the Vikings in the 9th century and has been grown ever since, having been used in single malt whiskies before (much) higher yielding strains of barley became available. The 21st century has seen distilleries experimenting with these older types of grain, for example Arran's 2004 Orkney Bere Barley whisky.
Part of Bruichladdich's Uber Provenance range, Bere Barley 2006 was produced from crops planted in the Achaba and Achfad fields on Kynagarry farm, Islay. The fields hadn't been used for agriculture in over a century and no chemicals were used.
Nose: Aromatic barley and an array of other golden notes; vanilla custard, dahlias, grapefruit blossom, cold lemon curd and orange zest.
Palate: Creamy with acacia honey, butter on toast, a little corn and sliced citrus fruits.
Finish: Dried grass, vanilla and roasted chestnuts on a cool Spring day.
Overall: An original and interesting, unpeated Islay single malt. This is delicious stuff.

Great purchase!! I've tried bruichladdich resurrection dram and it was awesome, but this one goes a step further. I still have watermouth when I think of the first time I relished a bere barley 2nd edition 2006. So sweet in nose so silky in palete and it's only a 6yo. My recomendation: If you come across one, don't hesitate and buy it.

Incredibly complex for such a young whisky, very unique, and absolutely delicious. A must if you manage to get your hand on one of these.

If you are one of the "beati populi" owning a bottle of it, do not open it. Outdoes a lot of 18, 23 or 30 YO Malts as a preeschooler. It's sold out. Nothing comparable among Peers. Will be famous.
