A blend of different vintages, Laddie Classic marks a full release of American Oak matured whisky, crafted by Master Distiller Jim McEwan to exhibit the true, classic flavours of Bruichladdich, distilled from unpeated barley. The distillers are calling this 'the essential Bruichladdich'.
Nose: Oaked and very fruity. Lots of tinned peaches, apricots and pear. Hints of salt air and apple peel with vanilla sweetness.
Palate: Youthful and oaky with hints of vanilla sweetness, peppery spices and cloves. A touch of nutmeg, some more apple peel and toffee.
Finish: Long, spiced and fruity with plenty of canned fruits…

Not quite true - I bought the cask after the Laddie 10 and the Infinity 3.1 had evaporated it's way down my throat via my palette. Bruichladdich must be one of the most adventurous distilleries currently producing. Those moaning above need to stop and think whether they actually know what they are talking about. James Saxon in particular needs to think before denigrating. Indeed James, pop over to Islay, enjoy this fantastic place - then taste, savour and realise that this is actually gods own earth.... bottled! The classic, my current everyday dram, is just that. A classic. Dink it and enjoy (then try the Bruichladdich Black Art). If you don't like it - pass the rest of the bottle to me, I'll happily help you out.

Found this great whisky at a liquor store in Chicago, recommended by the cashier as alternative to the famous Dalwhinnie, Lagavulin etc. I'm very pleased with the nose, complex taste and nice finish.

What a pompous ar*e you are. If you are so educated in whisky drinking you will realise that many different whiskies appeal to many different people. Not every, thankfully, is like you!

Try it with as well cold as warm smoked salmon, loved it, You may have a problem though if you dont like fish...
James Saxon .... you suck! I cannot believe the pomposity of your comments. What gives you the "authority" to claim that only the uneducated and inexperienced would like this whisky. I cannot abide the constant references on many whisky review sites which state that only the "learner" will like a particular whisky. Yes; one's whisky palate does change over time but your "one for the masses" comment reeks of arrogance. Not much chance of a good review of Glenfiddich; Glenlivet et al then.

As one who favors a lighter whisky, with just a touch or two of peat, I found the Laddie Classic to be great niche scotch. This is an early fall, leaves just beginning to turn by the fire with maybe a Vintage 1999 Montecristo type of whisky. The complexities unfold in an easy sort of way with just a bit of crispness.

When i nosed this sample its smell was really awsome and perhaps this is why I was slightly disappointed when I tasted the whisky. It wasn't bad at all but just nothing special, it was slightly boring

Quite a bitter taste - almost coffee. Not for me.

A real hit, fantastic light oak taste, lighter than other Islay in that respect, a real curiously light smell, light lapping waves with a hint of seasalt to the nose, slight tones fruit, I get pear the most. Delicious taste, initial urgency of sweet caramel, followed by a long lasting oatmeal. Great early evening dram.

really nothing special going on here, style over substance?

Again Bruichladdich have come up with an offering which to the unskilled and untutored drinker may seem ok. It is only when you have the education and experience I and others have that you are aware that this is a very poor whisky for very poorly educated drinkers!James Saxon

I was suprised to see it wasn't a 750 ml bottle - unusual color of bottle as well. My friend describes it as a good 7 out of 10

This is my first Bruichladdich and i am impressed. Great complex whisky. Nose(ocean breeze,smokie toffee?), pallet(fiery, sea spray), finish(long and beautiful). Simply astonishing. Oh love it. Just sip and savour

A splendid dram, with a really atractive complexity.
