Review door Bruichladdich

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »
Kleur

Dawn on wet sand.

Geur

Candied orange and lemon, beautifully floral. A touch of marine spice and citrus.

Smaak

Deliciously creamy with the barley notes very much to the fore.

Afdronk

A hot toddy.

Notitie

Just as our stillmen refuse to abandon the traditional crafts of distillation in favour of automation or industrialisation, so farmer William Rose rejects the use of herbicides, pesticides and artificial fertilisers. Crop rotation is key. Our barley must take its turn in a seven year farm cycle that also produces organic cattle, sheep, oats, beans, grass, carrots, market gardening and a megawatt of green electricity. Respecting the land, the soil and the climate nourishes a genuine and thorough understanding of terroir and the results are pure Bruichladdich. Rich, complex and a fascinating expression of provenance, we can sense, feel and taste the results in the glass. Once again, land and dram united.
