A long awaited whisky from Bruichladdich - a 10 year old comprising solely of unpeated spirit produced since Murray McDavid took over the distillery at the turn of the century. A landmark in their production and the beginning of a new age for the distillery.

I agree pleasant enough, don't spoil it with water. But i must add - it lacks flavour, i had hoped for more "ummf". There simply isn't enough body for the 46% alc. And complex`? Then i don't think we got it from the same batch. But at 30£ - a decent buy.

Very pleasantly surprised. An elegant, balanced lightly peated dram with a mellow creaminess and a hint of spice.

The L10 is VERY nice! If you have never had a peated whisky this is the one to start with! Although the canister says unpeated, clearly, there is a nice amount of peat for beginners to savor. Love the honey notes, the bannana nose, and the spicy finish. It's definately one to stock the old liquor cabinet with and money well spent, LOL.

This is a malt of the highest quality, non-chillfiltered and with no caramel colouring in it. For under 30 GBP, this is easily the finest Islay malt on the market. I recently poured the last dram from my bottle and I have enjoyed every drop of it. I would definitely buy it again.

Words can't really do justice how good this stuff is, all I can say is it is absolutely superb.

A great malt. Rapidly becoming one of my favourites in the "very affordable yet extraordinarily drinkable" realm of Scotch.
I disagree with the "no water" comments, although to each his own (I suppose)! In my opinion a teaspoon or two really brings out the inner qualities of The Laddie; a rich, mellow creaminess beneath a nautical tang - the whole impression is gorgeous and smooth. I find a sliced apple is a really nice accompaniment.

Over all a quality malt, but I didn't like those buttery notes. In the palate there is also something fish oil like.

No water in this one please! This is excellent stuff but in my opinion water ruins it. It's perfectly drinkable at 46% ABV.

Fantastically complex, both on the nose and the palate, but go very light on the water.

Pleasant enough but not as good as I hoped it would be and doesn't take water very well.
