Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.11 points
- Nose: Orange. Maybe a vague touch of tangerine or something semi-tropical. Scone dough. Very mild vanillins. Rosewater Turkish Delight. Lemon. The barley is still recognizable through it all. Sweet and balanced.
Palate: Some nice heat on arrival. Barley sugar sweetness up front. A nice candied fruit follows. Grassy Sauvignon Blanc tones. A very slight (but very nice) fuel note that dissipates with time in the glass. Still getting some orange. A touch of pepper. Toothpick and apple skin. Quite drying. None too complex, but doesn’t need to be.
Thoughts: This is NAS, so the immediate assumption is youth, and while there is certainly a heft of young whisky in here, I think there are a few slightly older casks thrown in to add a little softness and knock the edges off a bit.
- Aroma has a warm, fruity, malty profile with a strong layer of decadent dessert/pastry notes that lend some buttercream frosting characteristics making it a a loverly fun aroma; Palate comes through similarly to the aroma but with more apples and more depth to the malty notes; Finish is warm and fruity fading to oaky char.
