The Schtick: This is an organic release from Bruichladdich in that it is made from 100% organically grown Scottish barley. The growing season for this barley was 2008, and distillation commenced in 2009. It is matured for 8 years in a blend of American Whiskey casks. The Organic stamp is certified by the Biodynamic Association.
ABV: 50% ABV
Age: 8 Years
Nose: Sweet cream. Honey, lots of minerality and lemon. Fresh baked bread and fresh cracked pepper.
Taste: Medium mouth feel, cocoa and honey. Lightly smoky, faint ash. Fresh baked dough, lactic. No heat. Lemon zest is unmistakeable, faintly meaty.
Finish: Long, rich and sweet. Plums, tobacco, honey and brine. Lemon zest, ash, sea air and that lightly Laddie lactic funk.
Overall: Really nice. I’m a big fan of this, like previous Organics. The complexity is really well done here. It’s also a steal if you can find this in the $50-$75 range.
Thanks for reading!
