content description

Bruichladdich's Classic Laddie was created to represent the classic, unpeated style of Bruichladdich (it's made with 100% unpeated Scottish barley). This is a no age statement and non-chill filtered whisky matured in ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 50% ABV with no artificial colouring added. The average price of this bottle is around $45.

On the nose: wonderful floral notes, pebbles, vanilla, nuttiness, honey and fruitiness (oranges and apples).

On the palate: ripe apples and pears, vanilla, cereal malts, sugar and salt.

Finish: salted caramel, vanilla and fruitiness.

Overall: From nose to finish, this single malt is an absolute stunner.
