Review #1045 | Scotch Review #358 – Bruichladdich’s The Organic 2.10 Edition

The Schtick: This is a release from Bruichladdich, on Islay, that seeks to highlight their organic practices, while sourcing ingredients from various farms.

“In Victorian times when Bruichladdich Distillery was built, all Scottish barley was organically grown. In partnership with organic farmers Sir William Roberts at Mains of Tullibardine, William Rose at Mid Coul and Neil Scobie at Coulmore, Bruichladdich is reconnecting, rediscovering that soul.” – Bruichladdich Bottle

The barley is: Chalice, 100% Organic, from Mid Coup, Coupmore and Mains of Tullbardine.

Distiller: Bruichladdich

Bottler: Bruichladdich

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Fresh baked bread, clove and yeasty sweetness. Honey, lemon tart, pepper, brine and lightly lactic character. Sweet, fruity, bread-y with a hint of pepper and brine.

Taste: Medium mouth feel. Rich vanilla cream, honey, lemon and brine. Faint ash smoke, lightly lactic again, lots of bread-y notes.

Finish: Long, growing far more smokey with ash, pepper, leather, tobacco and brine dominating with light, bread-y lemon dessert in the background.

Overall: Really great stuff. I’ve had it blind in the past and it led me to procure a bottle in the form of a great gift from a friend. Working through this was both delicious and enjoyable, and I look forward to trying other Laddie Organic editions when I can.

Thanks for reading!
