The Classic Laddie is certainly the most recognizable Bruichladdich product thanks to its modern and colorful packaging. It’s a NAS whisky conceived by Jim McEwan, a legend in the whisky world and the man behind Bruichladdich’s rebirth.
TASTING NOTES Bruichladdich Classic Laddie
Nose: citrus fruits, lemon and citron are followed by spicy notes: pepper and a light cinnamon. After a couple minutes a mentholated note emerges.
Palate: again black pepper and cinnamon, along with apples, pears bananas and a clear vanilla note.
Finish: medium, black pepper, vanilla and licorice.
All the characteristics of Bruichladdich in a single glass. This is “only” an entry level spirit, but it’s a very interesting, well crafted and flawless whisky.
