Just by pronouncing the name, it sounds like an animated movie about a sweet brown bear called Bere Barley.
But, no such thing. This Bere Barley is one of the Bruichladdich Whisky range.
- Name: Bruichladdich
- Country: Scotland, Islay
- Type: Single Malt
- Price per standard amount: € 45,-
If I close my eyes.. and smell the Whisky, I see a field of yellow flowers near a farm. Just blooming, but through the sun already a bit withered. The farm could be a fruitfarm, with apple trees and pear trees, just embroiled with each other. And there is the sneaky bear, Bere Barley.
Bere Barley is running around like crazy and shouting: “50%, 50%, don’t drink too quickly! Take some time to nose and taste, And take it in you, slowly”.
- Color: Light golden
- Nose: Flowers, grain, thinking of yellow flowers, apple, lemon, tingling and a bit of caramel far away, broken branches of a pear tree
- Taste: Dried yellow fruit, pears, lemon, tingling on the tongue, warm, honey, nuts and hints of oily substance
- Finish: Short, warm, oily
Suggestions: Just Pure with maybe a drop of water.
I give this whisky an 7,5 out of 10.
