Bruichladdich - The Classic Laddie Scottish Barley

Bruichladdich - The Classic Laddie Scottish Barley

THIS SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY WAS ORIGINALLY CRAFTED BY DISTILLING LEGEND JIM MCEWAN TO SHOWCASE OUR FLORAL AND ELEGANT HOUSE STYLE. UNPEATED, IT HAS BECOME OUR SIGNATURE BOTTLING.


Jim has now retired but the spirit for this definitive Bruichladdich is still made from 100% Scottish barley, trickle distilled, and then matured for its entire life, on Islay, by the shores of Loch Indaal.


Each vatting of this classic multi-vintage cuvee is now carefully assembled from a suite of individual casks by our Head Distiller Adam Hannett.


COLOUR

Sunlight on fields of early summer barley


NOSE

The bouquet is brilliant. Opening with barley sugar and a hint of mint before leading into the most wonderful notes of freshly cut wild flowers; buttercup, daisy, meadowsweet, myrtle, primrose and cherry blossom. The cleanliness of the spirit is remarkable. As the seconds tick by, more aromas rise from the glass, little zephyrs of spindrift and sea pinks reminding you that this spirit is matured exclusively by the sea. After some four or five minutes and with the addition of a little water, caramelisd fruits drift onto the scene; lemon drops and honey, tangerine and tablet


PALATE

The palate entry is so refined and refreshing, the sweet oak and the barley arriving together sending the taste buds into raptures. The fruits from distillation drift in on an Atlantic breeze and pop on the tongue like champagne bubbles. A combination of ripe green fruit, brown sugar and sweet malt bring closure. A taste back in time, a realisation that not all single malts are equal and to achieve the absolute optimum, you must use barley that is made in Scotland. Make this one the benchmark for all others you meet on your journey through the stills of Scotland.


FINISH

Unforgettable! Its best enjoyed in good company, you just don’t want the evening to end. It brings warmth to the heart and soul. The clock slows down and the cares of tomorrow disappear into the dawn.


MOOD

Conviviality! Relaxed, enjoying the spirit in the glass and the laughter from tales often told but never tired of hearing.
