Bruichladdich Organic Barley 2009
Bruichladdich have been experimenting with organic barley since 2003. They explain, "We freely admit that the original motivation behind our exploration of organic barley was the exploration of new flavours. While we were aware of the environmental benefits of organic, our initial interest was driven by the question: “what would an organic Bruichladdich taste like? We love variety and we were simply interested not in whether organic tastes better – but rather would it taste different? Our question was answered the moment we first sampled organic new make spirit as the contrast was almost startling. The taste, the aroma, even the mouthfeel was brim full of, let’s call it an organic creaminess, the like of which we had never previously experienced."
Once again, the barley has been sourced from William Rose at Mid Coul, a big organic farm of some 2,700 acres located on Scotland’s Moray Firth. 50% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
