Bruichladdich The Organic 2010 Mid Coul Farms
Bruichladdich // Islay, Scotland
This release from Bruichladdich is made entirely from organic barley grown at Mid Coul Farm in the north of Scotland just east of Inverness. The barley was harvested in 2009 and the whisky was distilled the following year using Islay spring water. Aged for eight years in American oak casks which previously held bourbon. The whisky is non-chillfiltered and has no color added. Bottled at 50% ABV.
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.
Cask TypeAmerican oak ex-bourbon
"The nose starts on hints of burlap, butter and whole grain bread, although there is room for some fruitiness too, like apple cider and galia melon. The palate is creamy with a pleasant initial fruitiness followed by warming spices, but also a fudge-like sweetness. Overall a very enjoyable experience, even top-notch considering its age."
