Pronounced Brook-laddie, Bruichladdich was built in 1881 on the edge of Loch Indaal on the most westerly point of Islay. Their philosophy is to produce the most natural and enjoyable whisky possible. Their whiskies are all bottled on Islay, naturally, free from colouring, and chill-filtered for extra flavour and texture.
The Classic Laddie is the Islay distillery's flagship single malt. It is unpeated and made from 100% Scottish barley with some barley sourced from Islay.
The Classic Laddie Scottish Barley showcases the laddie style, elegant and floral with a signature salt-citrus tang. The bouquet opens with barley sugar and a hint of mint leading into notes of freshly cut wild flowers; buttercup, daisy, meadowsweet, myrtle, primrose & cherry blossom. With an addition of a little water, caramelised fruits drift onto the scene; lemon drops & honey tangerine.
