Bruichladdich Laddie Eight
When Bruichladdich announce a new dram, it always get me really excited and when they are travel retail only bottlings it gets me even more excited.
When they released two at the same time that made it even better, one being this laddie eight, matured in a combination of American and European oak, and the other a Port Charlotte which will be the next review.
This laddie eight is a fabulous whisky, lots of creamy buttery notes along with malt loaf, breadlines and citrus fruits, seriously interesting stuff.
If you happen to be looking for a sweet fruity and delicious dram, with an age statement, when travelling through an airport, then you really should be picking up a bottle of this.
Thanks to Bruichladdich for the official sample.
Light fresh and bready, there's a lovely sweet doughy bread note, along with light fresh fruity, light citrus peel notes, sweet floral notes of honey dipped carnations, with fruity raisins and sultanas with slices of malt loaf and butter topped digestive biscuits.
Buttery and creamy, honey dipped doughy bread and butter topped digestive biscuits again, a slight oily coating to the mouth that goes a little spicier but still maintains that sweet citrus note, those carnations are back and are stronger here and the citrus fruit adds in papaya, dragon fruit and passion fruit lovely stuff
Spicy, honeyed and drying
