Bruichladdich Laddie

Bruichladdich's flagship unpeated single malt release, made with 100% Scottish barley. It's also bottled at a hearty 50% ABV, which is a chunk higher than equivalent releases from almost any other distillery (usually 40-46%). This bottling strength is said to help bring the barley notes to the fore. Head Distiller Adam Hannett works with an ever-increasing range of casks aged alongside Lochindaal as well as changing profiles and varieties of carefully traced barley to put together a refreshing whisky with the signature fruity and floral Bruichladdich house style.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Elegantly sweet with honey'd barley, 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.

Reviews for Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie - Scottish Barley
Not for peaty blinders
This is a great young whisky, if you want smoke and peat move along, nothing to see here. If you fancy a nice half that hits all the right notes and doesn't break the bank, well look no further. I really enjoy this one and will buy again.

Awful stuff.
I love most Islay whiskeys but this one was terrible. Dont waste your money. The pepper on the after-taste will ruin it for you.

An Education
I thought I had reviewed this. From the reviews below it is clear that a lot of people have fundamentally misunderstood this dram.
It is…..let me re-iterate…an UNPEATED and YOUNG single malt!
Do not buy it and complain there’s no peat!
Do not buy it and complain it is young!
Do not buy it if you are looking for something it is not.
“ This Tio Pepe isn’t sweet at all! Rubbish!”
What this is…is an education. A lesson in perfectly malted barley with absolutely nothing to hide it, mask it or dilute it.
It’s lovely.
Soft, even at 50%, sweet, natural and honeyed.
It’s a wonderful achievement and you could learn a lot from it.

I'm an Islay whisky maniac and always want to try anything from the region. I love peat&smoke but bunna12 is still good. So though I'll try this.... And dud not like it. The nose is so confusing, like maple syrup and plastic stuff. The taste is mediocre and very thin. I guess I'll stick to other brands. Not my kind of whisky.

Pleasant, but not Islay
Many, many moons ago, my wife and I visited Bruichladdich for the first time. After a tour and a few hefty samples, I bought a 10, 15 and 17, which were the mainstays in those days. Then, a man came and asked me if i wanted a tour of the warehouse and perhaps have a taste from a barrel or two. Gladly, said I - and shook hands with Jim McEwan. He took time to explain to me the difference between chillfiltered and ncf whisky (which was quite unusual at that time) and I enjoyed a few cask stengths via 'the thief'. I must be honest and say that I haven't had any bottles of 'The Laddie' in recent years - a few Port Charlottes, yes. However, strangely, I saw a few pale blue bottles on the 'reduced to clear' shelf in a local supermarket for £25 and thought why not. Now, I have to say that I did enjoy this whisky but if you had presented it to me in a blind tasting I would never have guessed that it came from an Islay distillery: it tasted more Lowland or Speyside - fruit, vanilla and honey - not at all like the whisky from the distillery over 20 years ago but a pleasant, easy drinking dram for all that.

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!
