Bruichladdich Laddie Eight review

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

This is a review of Bruichladdich 8 year old single malt – The Laddie Eight whisky. The progressive Hebridean distillers at Bruichladdich distillery have a great track record of producing fresh, tasty whiskies. At least in my book they do. One of my all-time favorites is Laddie Ten.

Laddie Eight is unpeated, originally released for the Travel Retail Market, created by Head Distiller Adam Hannett. This expression aims to capture the floral notes along with Bruichladdich’s coastal elements.

Matured for eight years in American and European oak casks, this single malt whisky has not been chill-filtered and it has no added E150a caramel colouring. Bruichladdich never use chill-filtration or E150a.

Guaranteed progressiveness

Like so many times before, Bruicladdich manages to deliver once again a good whisky. This suits my palate with its fresh, sweet and floral, yet salty complexion.

Easy to drink and vibrant like Laddie whiskies tend to be.

Matured in:
Ex-Bourbon and Ex-Sherry casks
ABV: 50%
Colour: Sunlight
Non-chill filtered, no added colour
Nose: Softly floral, and sugary. Very smooth aromas. Sherried green fruits. Grassy with little bit of citrus fruits.
Taste: Nicely sweet and full. Full of barley sugar with hints of warming spices. Cinnamon and nutmeg, green fruits and bit of sherry.
Finish: Bit dry, sweet and fruity. Fresh with sugary barley and various fruits. Bit salty too, offering some of that coastal sea breeze.
Balance: Easy to drink, even without water. Guaranteed Bruichladdich experience with fresh fruity and barley notes.
