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.
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.
