The 2011 vintage Bruichladdich Islay Barley single malt was made using Publican and Oxbridge barley varieties grown by six farms around the Hebridean island. 75% was aged in first-fill American whiskey casks, 15% was aged in second and third-fill Sauternes and Austrian sweet wine casks, and 10% was aged in first-fill Rivesaltes wine casks. The whisky was then married together for six months before bottling.
From the outset this is overtly floral and fruity. Slow distillation brings out the best from the Islay grown Barley, the abundance of soft fruit notes and delicate floral style of this dram. Typical Bruichladdich style fruit notes of crisp apple and ripe pear along with peach and dried apricot are further enhanced with lemon drops, grapefruit and orange zest.
