The Laddie Ten can be seen as a landmark for the distillery and the Bruichladdich team. The first ten year old under the new owners.
Being new to the wonderfull world of whisky tasting, I was really drawn by the story behind this bottle. The way it is created (old fashioned) and the people behind it are the reasons I picked this bottle up. The price is also very friendly.
American Oak matured, unpeated and non-chill filtered. The Laddie Ten is rich and complex, I find the taste to be very refined. It has some spice, but it’s balanced with some fruits so that it’s never overwhelming. Adding some water really helps with opening up the flavours (some chocolate, baked bread, peppers, fruits). This whisky gets better when you spend more time with it. Although it’s from Islay, it doesn’t have the usual smokiness that is associated with Islay whiskies.
I am really liking this whisky. It comes in a striking turquoise tin can that really stands out between other whiskies. Really a recommendable whisky that people should try out. Overall a great flagship that represents the Bruichladdich distillery in a very good way. I'm really looking forward to more great stuff that's coming from Bruichladdich!
