Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie - Scottish Barley Reviews

Smooth creamy whiskey, with hints of toffee

Oh my what a rather nice tasting smooth but not too complex whiskey, it's very pale in colour not quite clear as suggested but a mild golden colour. Its rich on the nose somewhat creamy, vanilla, berry and buttery pastry. Also after a bit some sea salt and black pepper with a hint of toffee.
Tastes like malted biscuits, sea salt, vanilla, apple, pear and definitely getting oak in there.
Quite a medium to long neck you can tell it's not aged but I didn't mind some citrus hints and the tiniest hint of smoke all in all probably around 80-85 out of 100 mainly as it's not aged but certainly worth the price.

Excellent malt would buy it again

I hadn’t heard of this one and it was a real surprise as it’s one on the better single malts I have tried. Tastes like a very expensive whisky 😃

Really good malt for the money

One of my ‘go to’ ones. Really well balanced and smooth. Fruity into spice then a smooth finish keeping the not over peaty or smoky overtones with a slight sweetness/vanilla to it. Cracking dram!

Great dram at great price

Had low expectations but very pleasantly surprised. Great depth and malty coming through, not pester but slight smoke coming through counterbalancing great sweetness. Ignore the bottle, it’s a great dram.

One of my favorites

Wonderfully coastal on the nose. Crisp and sweet on the palate with a cool and velvety mouth feel. A perfect summer dram.

Classic Laddie = Classic Scotch

Only knock from me is that I dont get as much on the nose however the palate/finish more than makes up for it.

Starts fruity, gets a little spicy then finishes sweet. Just an amazing scotch for the price... will be a go to for me.

Well i have tried another couple of bruichladdich, the bere barley 2009 and the classic eight. Both fantastic drams and this one didn't let me down. Very fruity and malty. sea air and a hint of smoke. Clean and fresh. The flavours keep coming, they never end...Seems like this distillery know their job. For me one of the best out there...If you are into sherry bombs then this is not for you. This is a different story...Very unique dram..Pure pleasure..magic..

Enjoyable non peated Islay malt indeed

Well done Jim McEwan & co! Nice to experience a non-peated Islay malt. I agree master of malt tasting notes, light body, fruity, toffee, vanilla, cinnamon. Found some on sale & really did enjoy it as it is unlike any malt in my bar!🥃

Not a good whisky for MY taste

I may not know shit about whisky, I'm the gin and coffee lover. But I've tried different spirits and I know what I expect from a good whisky: smooth palate, intresting, complex flavour and aroma and pleasant overall feeling.
This Laddie has only one point to it - it's intresting. Not pleasant, not unpleasant - it's just strange. First sip - aggressive and disgusting. Gets better after few.
To compare - I've really enjoyed Kinahans Cask Project, very smooth and fruity and much cheaper. Also have good memories of Tokinoka Black, taste profile closer to delicious and complex sweet bourbon.

Don't buy a whole bottle until you try it!

I also recommend checking out the negative reviews down here, it's a lot of fun to read. Special greetings for Laddie Williams!
