Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2011 Islay Single Malt. Image courtesy Bruichladdich.This whisky was distilled in 2011 using barley grown on several Islay farms during the summer of 2010. The nose has a barely noticeable whiff of smoke, along with heather, grilled pineapple, and a hint of lemon zest. The taste is peppery with a good balance of fruity notes underneath and just a hint of brine. The finish is long and gentle with subtle spices and a hint of grilled fruits. (June, 2019)
