Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie
Jim McEwan created Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie from whisky matured in American oak casks alongside Lochindaal. And chosen to represent the classic, unpeated distillery style. Bruichladdich’s new signature bottling is made with 100% Scottish barley.
Nose: Elegantly sweet with honey’d barley. With boiled sweets and orange petals. Wafts of sea air.
Palate: Red apples and white grapes. With touches of sweet cinnamon and brown sugar. Still softly coastal.
Finish: Mineral-rich malt, with toffee and more honey.
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie
Quote 1 “Not a whisky man but been drinking this particular one for a number of years. It feels so smooth and tasty that in my limited opinion regards whisky it is the number 1 for me and will remain so. A superb product.”
Quote 2 “Love the Laddie. Immediate waft of barley, almost reminiscent of bourbon, followed by layers of sweetness (honey and vanilla). Besides, starts off with a sharp inhale of breathe, savoured as it lingers with its sea air and a finish that reminds us there’s some ready for the next nip.
Quote 3 “This is young and strong but gentle and smooth. An excellent study in the power of expertly handled malted barley; To have power without jaggedness, complexity without confusion without spending decades in a bonded warehouse. I like this a lot, more so because it is unpeated. I would love to taste this at 18 years. It would be sublime. But as it is a very nice dram.”
