Bruichladdich keep churning out some real quality malts and their standard range are still solid options. This is NAS but the tin looks identical to The Laddie TEN. In fact, I have a bottle of the Laddie 10 and so can assure fans of the 10 that this is very similar. This is unpeated.
It sparkles in the glass like a jewelled Chardonnay.
The nose gives honey, floral, apples and vanilla. It is a pleasant and interesting nose.
In the mouth feel is smooth, malty, sweet apples, vanilla, fresh and clean.
The finish is slightly spices, sweet honey. There is a lingering sense of saline but overall pleasant, fruity, fresh.
Verdict... I like it. I rate this right up there with the Laddie TEN and whilst this is bigger at 50% the Laddie is ever so slightly better.
