Description

For nearly two decades, Bruichladdich has demonstrated a steadfast dedication to barley provenance, a commitment exemplified in the Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2014. This latest unpeated single malt, distilled exclusively from barley grown on Islay, is a celebration of both place and provenance. Distilled from barley sourced from eight local farms within an 11-mile radius of the Bruichladdich Distillery, it embodies the essence of its origin. The Islay Barley 2014, with full traceability from farm to glass, has matured in a harmonious blend of first-fill bourbon casks, sherry butts, and second-fill wine casks. This careful cask selection ensures a perfect balance between the oak's influence and the character of the locally sourced barley.

Tasting Note by Bruichladdich:
Nose: Delicate floral notes along with sweet malt and ripe grain open on the nose. Hints of pepper and soft spices follow before the dram reveals soft stoned fruits and creamy vanilla. Creamy vanilla, a hint of coconut, butterscotch, and brown sugar come from the oak, alongside delicate notes of nutmeg and hazelnut. Fruit notes continue to open, with fragrant peach, honeyed melon, pear drops and warm banana bread.
Palate: Creamy vanilla and lemon are immediate on the palate, with a peppery nutmeg spice giving way to sweet malt, warm porridge and popcorn. The depth of flavour and creamy, viscous texture is typical of our Islay barley style, with the natural oils from the barley enhanced with layers of sweet citrus, tropical fruit and fragrant peach. The combination of American and French oak makes for a beautifully balanced expression, with a drop of water bringing out subtle marine notes.
Finish: Sweet, stoned fruits settle on the palate with creamy vanilla custard and a touch of coconut, while a delicate floral note lingers.
