Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2008
Bruichladdich // Islay, Scotland
Distilled in 2008, this single malt whisky from Bruichladdich is named after the type of barley used to create it. Bere generally produces very low yields, almost 50% less than other barley crops, and has very small and starch rich grains. The bere used in this single malt comes from the island of Orkney, although the whisky itself was distilled at the Bruichladdich distillery in Islay.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
