Organic 2003

Bruichladdich Organic 2003 Anns An T-seann Doigh

A century ago most barley was organically grown. natural fertilisers – seaweed, peat and manure – were harnessed in a way that respected the year’s agricultural cycle. 2003 was a particularly fine harvest of chalice barley for william rose at culblair farm. Supreme quality barley combined with a slow trickle-distillation to do it justice, and new oak has resulted in the “creamiest” spirit we’ve ever seen. A limited edition release of 15,000 numbered bottles. Our very first organic release and something of a milestone.

Tasting Notes

Character – Precision and definition. Light, fresh, clean, smooth and creamy. A single malt this young simply should not be as smooth but this is handcrafted, fully certified organic single malt.

Colour – Soft Yellow/Lemon.

Nose – Opens on barley water and lemon juice with a sweet notes of lemon meringues. Fragrant floral blossoms intermingle beautifully with the citrus flavours exciting the taste buds. Also, we find little notes of ester sweet pineapple.

Palate – Malted barley emerges. Crisp and sweet, almost like toasted rye bread, buttery popcorn and the fresh oak bourbon flavours merge into the mix strong and mellow adding structure and weight to the overall experience.

Finish – Organic barley produces a more malty taste, the texture is more viscous and fresh green fruity notes are more pronounced.. The finish is like glycerine and it caresses the palate like swansdown. Oh the purity!

Mood – Loud, enthusiastic, eager, alert. Enjoy the experience. With the ingredients of passion, skill, pride and a history of distillation that goes back centuries we owe it to you, the consumer, to share in our dreams and aspirations. Without you, there is no dream!
