The first of a new series from Bruichladdich, this Laddie Classic is a no-age-statement bottling intended, as the name would suggest, to showcase the classic 'Laddie style.Tasting Notes (1)
- Salt (powder)
Tasting Notes by Rocky
Fruity nose of conference pear, honeydew melon and red apple, combined with sweet vanilla and the faintest hint of salinity.
Semi-luscious texture with the fruits from the nose joined by papaya and guava, the vanilla from the oak slightly more noticeable but without being overpowering and a mouth-watering salinity.
The tropical fruit flavours slowly fade to leave a delicious mixture of salty vanilla.
The perfect example that Islay whisky doesn’t have to be peaty. This does as it says on the bottle, showcasing the house style (as they would say in Champagne) of the distillery.

Nose: Honey, green apple, barley, clove Taste: Salt, barley, and a bit of honey. I tried to discern a few more notes but struggled. Not a terribly complex whisky. Very hot, even after putting a drop of water in. I had to further dilute it with another dash of water. Not my favourite. I'll get through the bottle but won't be getting a second one...
I have not tried any unpeated Scotch from Islay other than this, but I have to say this was terrible.
Understated, unassuming, the pallet speaks volumes. Add a drop or two of water and the aroma to the nose explodes. Barley soft, smooth silky, slightly oily to the to taste, then after you swallow, the richness explodes and lingers with all the flavours of smokiness and peat. Think Jameson to the nose, Lagavulin to the taste, just more intense. This is an underrated whiskey, definitely a good buy.
Excellent. Thought ' Nae Peat , Nae Good' but was wrong. Recommended.
Apples, pear, pineapples, cinnamon, vanilla with a hint of salt. But the taste doesn't seem to live up to the aroma: mainly pepper and fruits, and fades quite quickly.
