The Oddbins Take

They Say

This single malt Scotch whisky has been crafted by master distiller Jim McEwan from individually selected casks to showcase the classic, floral and elegant Bruichladdich house style. Un-peated, it is their signature bottling and the definitive Bruichladdich. Made from 100% Scottish barley, trickle distilled, then matured for its entire life by the shores of Lochindaal in premium American oak, it is a testament to the quality their ingredients. Smooth as pebbles in a pool, it’s clean, fresh and lively with both the sweet oak and the malty grain in perfect harmony.

We Say

We Say: Bruichladdich is the gentle giant of Islay and was resurrected in 2001 to take its place again as a counterweight to the island’s peaty, seaweed-y behemoths. The Laddie is the first in a new series from Bruichladdich that encapsulates their softer, mossy style. Alter Ego: Ben Fogle; an adorably mild-mannered, loveable islander, this is a true original. If you lean in and take a sniff you’re sure to get a healthy dose of sea pink and myrtle from this well-turned out Laddie.

Built in 1881 when puffer-supplied coal was available as an alternative fuel to local peat, it is likely that Bruichladdich was specifically designed to produce the purest unpeated spirit possible. The distillery produces natural whisky, non-chill filtered and colouring free.
