Bruichladdich 'The Classic Laddie' Non-Peated Single Malt 50% 70cl

Bruichladdich signature bottling of the definitive Bruichladdich. Showcasing the classic, floral and elegant Bruichladdich house style, This Classic Laddie is made from 100% Scottish barley, trickle distilled, non-chill filtered and colouring free.

The foundation of the Classic Laddie is not a recipe set in stone, but a distilling philosophy. Bruichladdich have no interest in precise uniformity, instead - year by year - the variety and provenance of their barley shapes this spirit, and an ever-increasing range of casks are sourced to evolve the variety of flavours in the warehouse. Never striving for absolute consistency, each batch of The Classic Laddie will, by nature, be unique and subtly different.

Bottling this Classic Laddie at 50% alcohol by volume as opposed to the average of 40-46%. The flavour of our spirit at 50% ABV is barley forward, meaning you taste more of the Scottish malt they have worked hard to trace.

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, including little zephyrs of spindrift and sea pinks, reminding you that this spirit is matured exclusively beside the sea. After some four or five minutes and with the addition of a little water, caramelised 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.
