Bruichladdich Islay Barley Rockside Farm

Bruichladdich Islay Barley Rockside Farm


The wild west atlantic facing coast gave birth to this third release in Bruichladdich's uber-provenance Islay barley series. Harvested in 2006 & distilled in 2007, the grain for this iconic whisky was grown for Bruichladdich in the minister’s field at Rockside farm by Mark and Rohaise french, producing a whisky of exceptional complexity.
Bruichladdich believe terroir matters. Distinctive, authentic and unique, this is land and dram united.

Honed, muscular and lithe. The texture is rich and robust with the maltiness of the barley very much at the fore. There is a natural innocence and purity to this spirit that brings an unbelievable depth and complexity to the palate. For a spirit so young the Bruichladdich Islay Barley Rockside Farm is outstanding.

Tasting Notes By The Bruichladdich Distillery:

Colour: Golden hay/warm honey

Nose: Classic, distinct, Islay aromas enchant the sensory system. The floral notes of heather covered moorlands in full bloom and more than a hint of juniper, hawthorn & mountain thyme. Then the beautiful aroma of soft ripe fruit, green grapes, melon, pear & pineapple all sprinkled with cinnamon. However, the main player in this stunning olfactory bouquet is the Islay barley; grown in salt laden soil, washed by atlantic showers, battered by strong winds and warmed by a late summer sun. It survives and we love it like no other. Its DNS is 100% Islay.

Palate: The oak has been waiting patiently and now it cradles all of the aromatics. This malt is in so perfect a place at this time that I cannot ever recall such a pleasurable taste experience. The flavours of this island detonate across the palate. Made and matured by the ocean by real artisans, working with victorian equipment. It’s the start of a journey that few have ever dreamed about and now it’s possible for us to walk with this young ileach as he challenges the shaman and their marketing myths.

Finish: With no chill filtration the palate is bathed in an amazing spiritual composition. The viscosity of spirit ensures that the taste buds will still be experiencing the strong pulse of passion that has gone into the making of this true son of Islay, finally leaving you with a feeling of sublime contentment.

Mood: This is the big easy. It’s one to relax with alone or with friends. Myself, I prefer to share my time alone with our son and take in the story he tells of good days to come and hopes for the future. So, it’s best to listen to the story rather than the chatter of those who just don’t get it.
