Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie / 50% / 70cl
The famous unpeated Islay whisky created by Jim McEwan at the Bruichladdich distillery.
An elegantly sweet whisky with honeyed barley, boiled sweets and orange oils.
The coastal location of the distillery comes through as gentle sea breeze and minerality. This is followed by red apples and white grapes, with touches of sweet cinnamon and brown sugar.
An incredibly popular single malt that proves delicate, easy-drinking whisky can be found on Islay! The vibrant turquoise colour of the bottle is said to be inspired by the colour of the sea just outside the distillery. Plus it looks great on your shelf.
Nose: simply put this is a superbly rich summer coastal nose, with fruit and roasted barley, summer sea and citrus.
Palate: Just like the nose this dram is so nicely balanced with the addition of orchard fruits and Victoria sponge cake with vanilla and strawberry, soft summer fruits and toffee popcorn.
The coastal aroma and mid palate mingle with ease without catching you out, breakfast real oak bars and ripe banana with a honey drizzle.
