Bruichladdich Scottish Barley

One of the most famous bottlings from the Bruichladdich distillery returns in a new guise. Due to the lack of chill-filtration, the smallest suspended particles remain in the Malt, which are carriers of special flavour components. The Whisky was produced with 100% Scottish barley.⁠

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 Single Malt - but where is the age and substance?
