  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 81 points Super Administrator

    The Classic Laddie comes in a stylish turquoise bottle with strong 50% ABV, natural color and no chill-filtration. That's a good start. On the nose, you get rich barley sugar, toasted bread and baked apple intermingled with heather honey, candy floss and floral notes. After a minty-fresh, astringent and zesty arrival, the taste develops bland and one-dimensional. Young, spirity and lacking body, Bruichladdich's NAS expression disappoints with a swift, aromatic and unpleasantly bitter finish. It's not a bad Islay whisky, but where are age and substance?

  3. The_Osprey scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie 50%. I tried this once before and didn't get on with it at all, but I was early in my whisky tasting journey and so I re-rated it at The Old Toll Bar Glasgow, April 2019. A soft pepperiness integrated with oak, light vanilla and some typical bourbon cask notes. It's okay but I have reconfirmed that it's not to my personal taste. (3.15/75)
