Indiana Jones Favorite Whisky.

Bruichladdich distillery on the island of Islay has been creating some of the finest Scotch Whisky available since 1881. In recent years, this quality has resulted from its Wine-based strategy of focusing their releases on origin, terroir, traceability, and authenticity. They are owned by the French company Remy Cointreau so what do you expect I guess? With celebrity support from none other than Harrison Ford you know they must be doing something right. Their bold experimentation of late has led to series such as The Octomore, the world’s peatiest Whiskies.

This release, however, is something they’ve kept closer to home. The Islay Barley bottlings from the distillery always use barley grown on farms around the island. Every now and again they make a version of this homegrown malt that’s even more special and has just used barley from one specific farm and harvest. This is what we have here with the Rockside Farm 2010. Other than a few Angus beef cattle this farm focuses its production purely on the highest quality barley for the Bruichladdich distillery. With this release, you get the incredible opportunity of tasting an Islay grown malt that is unpeated and relies purely on the natural flavor of the barley. A real unique treat. This may be a bit younger than other Scotch you can get your hands on but the quality of harvest that has gone into this Whisky means it should not stay in the Cask for a moment longer.

Ratings & Reviews
I clearly taste the apple, but earlier in the flavor spiral. Sometimes alcohol content can be deceiving, but this is true to form and a bit too hot for my taste. Still, enjoyable.
