    The Laddie Ten caught everyone's attention justly. Mark Reynier injected his knowledge of the wine trade into a new and fresh Bruichladdich. The concept of terroir still is, even after the take-over, the basis of future Laddies.

    There's a rumour that all available bottles are being recalled to Islay headquarters and sold as a distillery-only bottling. Scarce, age statement, a gap in production,... A lot of theories roam around. If you spot one, don't hesitate too long.

    Price is € 50. Finders, keepers
    • Nose
      The nose is overwhelming. Vanilla, honey, milk, honeysuckle and lime infused tea. Steamed vegetables with sesame oil. Roasted sesame seeds and caramelised bananas.
      A few drops of water accentuate the sweeter side. Vanilla, honey, gingerbread and sweet citrus lemonade. Milk chocolate with hazelnut.
    • Taste
      The palate is fresh, sweet and spicy. Mandarin, chocolate and wood flakes with a hint of tobacco and nuts.
      Influenced by water there's more citrus lemonade with a dash of pepper. It gets drier towards the end and a little more oaky.
    • Finish
      The finish is dry with some sweetness. The laddie is clear on one thing: More please!

    ( 23/ 25)  Balance is good, it just seems slightly unrefined in a hard to describe sense.
    • Nose
      ( 19/25) An abundance of vegetables, some on the verge of going bad, think Corn, Cabbage, carrots, potatoes, broccoli, and spinach.  That on top of a nice toasted malt background.
    • Taste
      ( 22/25) Sweet, syrupy, lots of grains, including an abundance of fresh corn.  Again a lot of the similar vegetables from the nose come out.  A touch of sea salt, and a hint of brine.  Intersting, weird having all the peat effects without any of the smoke.
    • Finish
      ( 22/25)  Drying but sweet, again lots of vegetable matter, some nice buttered and sugared toast with a bit of cinnamon.  Very long lasting.

    This spirit, malted from only Scottish barley for authenticity, slow fermented for purity, trickle distilled for creamy texture and cask-filled at 70% for extra flavor, quietly slumbered in their Loch-side warehouses for the ten (10) years. The whisky was then bottled on 9/11/11 at a special ceremony at Bruichladdich.

    This Islay dram is classic Bruichladdich, 85% American oak, 15% Sherry cask, non-peated, and bottled at 46% with no chill filtration and never any coloring added.

    The whisky is brilliant, reminiscent of the original Fifteen year old.
