2010 Bruichladdich Islay Barley- Cuol, Cruach, Dunslossit, Island, Mulindry Rockside, Starchmill & Sunderland Farms
This is a thought provoking, uber-provenance single malt whisky distilled from barley grown by eight family farms on our remote Scottish island home.
Barley varieties Optic and Oxbridge were planted across the breadth of the island in 2009; gathering the harvests together was to result in this first 'regional Islay release' - the fifth in the Islay Barley series.
We distilled their spirit early in 2010 and it ran clean, rich and malty, before being filled into ex-Bourbon and French wine casks and matured in our warehouses by Loch Indaal.
The characters of the people of Islay, just like the malting barley grown here for Bruichladdich, are shaped by this place we love and call home. As distillers, our identity is expressed with honesty and pride through this exceptional series of Islay-grown barley releases that mean so much to us. The great dedication and passion of those who raise the crop, despite the risks and hardships they encounter each year, is matched by the pride we take in distilling their barley. We feel it shares our Islay DNA.
