Tasting Notes
Colour - Deep copper touched with rouge
Body - The light creaminess of the 16 year old bourbon matured Laddie is taken to another level by the elegance of Haut Brion to give a mouth feel that is ripe, succulent and juicy.
Nose - The olfactory senses are washed in the beautiful aromas evolving gracefully from the Bruichladdich spirit and both the Bourbon and Haut Brion casks. Crisp red apple and fresh ripe plums burst over biscuit sweet malted barley with a flash of lemon honey and iodine from the coastal maturation. After a wave of vanilla soothes and mesmerizes, your attention is turned to an abundance of pink rose petals, cherries, figs, wild honey and a hint of mocha.
Palate - Feast on the alluring warmth of the spirit as it passes over the palate creating pockets of flavour to tease and reward as you discover all on offer. Hot buttered popcorn, red fruits, crisp cereal, mint fudge, Cassis, dark chocolate and cloves unite together to create a taste phenomenon of unprecedented magnitude. Soft tropical fruit flavours and mild oak nuances add to the whirlpool of intoxication that exemplifies all that we use our passion, skills and knowledge to strive for.
Finish - Beautifully elegant and utterly unforgettable.

Distilled and Bottled by Bruichladdich Whisky Distillery - Islay
