Lavish cereal richness…
Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie Unpeated
Traditional, old fashioned, no peat Bruichladdich. Dare I suggest that this dram is…elegant?
From WhiskyWash, “Lavish cereal richness supports an array of sweet and floral delights: orange, red currant, chamomile, Meyer lemon, and white grapefruit all dolloped with honey vanilla yogurt. That almost candied sweetness fades into an a satisfyingly savory midpalate, with bittersweet toasted walnuts and Brazil nuts studding musty oak. At the end, though, it takes a final swerve back to the sweet side, leaving me with the lingering impression of sugary grapefruit gummy candies”.
Official notes read, “. The fruits from distillation drift in on an atlantic breeze and pop on the tongue like champagne bubbles. A combination of ripe green fruit, brown sugar and sweet malt bring closure. A taste back in time, a realisation that not all single malts are equal and to achieve the absolute optimum, you must use barley that is made in Scotland”.
