  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Indeed a classic Laddie. I like the finish most.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet, barley, nutty, some caramel and a hint of fudge.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, a little dirty note. Some caramel, hint of peat, hint of lemonzest. a little rough.
      With water: the roughness goes away.

      Medium length. Here you find the true Laddie. I like this. A little rough, but in a good way. Loads of vanilla and caramel. dissolves with some wood notes but not bitter nor dry.

  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Like the bottle says..a Classic laddie. Sweet, smooth and just very good. There is that typical dirty/earthy laddie note. It is a traditional entry whisky and it is good at what it does.
    • Nose
      It gives a farm-like smell combined with butter and and barley. There is also a subtle nuttyness. It is remarkable friendly for the nose.
    • Taste
      Notable sharp initialy which disolves quite quickly. Taste is rather standard. It reminds me of the typical entry core range 10-12yo speyside and Highland whiskies. It’s Sweet, fruity (white grapes and pear), a tad edgy and and quite a big hint of malted barley and some white pepper.
    • Finish
      Barley, farmish, a slight dirty/earthy note with a bitter-dry finale.

  7. Bendrachm did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Eye: Nice amber glow. Telephone cord. Nose: Mild brine, butter, smoke, lemon peel, vanilla. White chocolate. Macadamia. Fruity but not frivolous. Mouth: Tooth coating. Brine. Ripe banana, ripe bittersweet apple, oaky bite, almost tropical. Mint. Kitchen spice. Date. Decent burn.

    With water: More floral and cereals. Healthy sandwich. Butter. Melon skin. Yasmin tea.

  10. maltaholic scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Do not smell smoke, unlike any other Bruichladdich I've tried so far. A bit weak in expression, only the carnation prevails and I do not like. No, I do not have to.
