Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2013
For almost two decades now, we have shown the permanence of our commitment to barley provenance. Aided by the determination of our farming partners, this Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2013 is our eighth edition of unpeated, locally grown single malt.
While each expression from the individual growing season is subtly nuanced, a signature maritime-citrus, barley forward style has developed in these complex single malts.
Our newest vintage of unpeated Bruichladdich Islay Barley features the harvest from the 2012 growing season, later distilled in 2013.
The crop was raised across seven island farms, by Hunter Jackson at Cruach, Andrew and Donald Jones at Coull, Mark French at Rockside, Ian McKerrell at Island, Alistair Torrance at Mulindry, Raymond Fletcher at Dunlossit and Raymond Stewart at Sunderland.
The resulting spirit was matured in a combination of ex-American and ex-European oak casks for eight aged years.
