Bruichladdich’s Classic Laddie is a no-age-statement single malt, meaning that all you know from the label is that it’s at least three years old – because whisky can’t legally be called whisky until it reaches that age.
While they’re not, by law, allowed to put more details on the bottle, Bruichladdich want drinkers to know exactly what’s in every batch of their whisky. After all, each edition of Classic Laddie is made up of around 76 different casks spanning four different vintages, seven cask types and three barley types – so there’s a lot to know!
NOSE: A hint of sea spray, but rich and plush, with punchy fruit and floral aromas.
PALATE: Enticing mix of creaminess and salinity – rich and refreshing.
FINISH: Nice balance between the sprightly fruit and tangy sea-spray elements.
