Jura The Loch

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.

Bruichladdich Scottish Barley - The Classic Laddie Reviews

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!

My favourite

This is most probably my favourite dram. Lovely

If you haven't had the classic laddie then are you even a whisky drinker?

I dont know how anyone could dislike this, no matter if your thing is peated iodine flavours, sherry bombs, fruity speyside's etc. This is just a damn good whisky for whisky enthusiasts but also beginners.

Nose: Picnic in a field of blossoming flowers, Whats in your picnic? of course its jaffa cakes, melon ice tea and crunchy bars.
Palate: Marmalade its slightly sour (in a good way, like lemon sorbet) but also balanced well with some nice bitterness, then bam that brown sugar, florals and a nice oaky vanilla finish.

For the price its a 5/5

A genuinely unique flavour

The tasting notes are pretty close to perfect for me, I found this to be beautifully clean in a way that reminded me of the also excellent Dalwhinnie 15. Not peated and unlike the preponderance of sherried whiskies this is a genuinely original and distinct flavour profile.

Very enjoyable

I get apricot and lots of honey. Nothing too aggressive - you could drink it every day. Fantastic whisky.

Better than its aged counterpart. It's something.

Nose: Time is required to split the alcohol. Clean beautifully balanced fruit.

Palate: There is some youth in this non ruled palate. Fight past it and what remains is a not unpleasant listlessness that peters nowhere and everywhere.

After: Little to say.

Diggin it in Siem Reap

My bottle is excellent..there is a code on the back you can enter on their website and find out about your batch. It is not meant to be the same batch after batch...go get a johnny walker if you want that...
Mine had 8 year as the youngest used 11 different cask types and is a delicious product..non chill coloring wonder one review was upset it was so young due to color...he only drinks the cold filtered dyed crap...
I love the 50% ABV...can add a touch of water if you prefer or an ice cube..
What is great about it is you can try a non peated Islay and then compare it to a peated Islay and smell and taste notes you thought were peat but are actually not peat at all...the sea air...something...not peat..
Next, I am buying Port Charlotte..

Not a review, a question.

It appears the 2016-17 reviews were not keen but since then things have improved. Is the whisky genuinely better now or are the reviewers a different?

(I do like this whisky btw, and the Port Charlotte 10 is very good too)

Barry whisky!!

Bruichladdich just seem to me to have the cleanest most invigorating flavoured whiskies - fresh

A pony and artful

Dancing complexity on the palate with sweetness and satisfying finish. Sipped this all afternoon by a fire and never was wanting a peated malt. Now one of my favorites. —a long time lover of single malts who lived in Scotland.
