Bruichladdich Barley 2012

Another top edition of Bruichladdich The Organic. A vintage 2012 single malt, it was made with 100% unpeated Scottish barley, the Publican variety, grown at Mid Coul farm. It was aged in 100% first-fill bourbon barrels to preserve as much of the flavour of the grain as possible and was bottled at 50% ABV.

Mid Coul farm is close to Inverness in the north of Scotland and has been growing organic barley for the Islay distillery since 2003 on its progressive 2,755-acre estate. The site boasts a closed-loop fertility system that generates electricity using an anaerobic digester. Almost all waste material is recycled as fertiliser, while the barley is sustainably farmed without agrochemicals, fertilisers, or pesticides and supports the soil it was grown in.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose Distinct cereal notes open on the nose, with dried hay, barley straw, and malty biscuit. A sweet combination of Crème brûlée, coconut, butterscotch, and vanilla from the oak follow while earthy barley grows over time, enhanced by floral notes and sweet dried apricot and pear.

Palate A creamy texture coats the palate, with a peppery hint of spice followed by floral heather honey. The malty character of the grain comes to the fore, with notes of warm scones and barley straw. The American oak adds an additional layer of sweetness, with fresh vanilla, marzipan, and coconut. Adding a drop of water opens up the fruit and oak influence, revealing ripe gooseberry, pear, and grapefruit along with sweet honeycomb and fudge.

Finish The malty character of the spirit is unmistakable on the finish, while almond and butterscotch notes from the oak linger.
