Bruichladdich 2008 Bere Barley Unpeated Whisky

$149.00
“Bere is a hardy and resilient grain, adapted to poor soil conditions and a short growing season with long hours of daylight. Yields are low and the grain proved difficult to mill. The dense grist was to break our Victorian equipment when we first tried to mash it. But the results speak for themselves. Head Distiller Adam Hannett says; “The bere has more emphasis on the fruit and malt notes than spirit distilled from conventional two row barley varieties. It seems more full bodied, with more depth and malt character. Matured in American oak casks from ex Bourbon and Tennessee whiskies Aged for 9 years. The grain was grown in partnership with the Agronomy Institute of the University of Highlands and Islands Orkney. A very pale clour of winter sunlight, with the nose showing hints of gooseberries, apples and pears. The finish has a gentle dryness with a hint of oak” - Producer
