Bruichladdich ‘The Laddie Ten’ Second Limited Edition Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 50% Age: 10 Years Old Country: Scotland
It’s back. Bursting onto the screen like Terminator 2 with plenty of excitement and celebration. The first edition was an exceptional whisky and this release does not disappoint. However it is limited and it is one of a kind.
This unpeated ten year old is a powerful, youthful individualist. It has not been homogenised or subject to the industrial processes and caramel additives that strip out natural oils and artificially darken. Its colour is derived entirely from great casks, housed on Islay for a decade or more. Unpeated Islay Single malt. First-fill Bourbon, sherry and French wine casks. Bottled at 50% alc. vol. using Islay Spring water. 18,000 individually numbered bottles only.
Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale amber
Nose: Light honey and citrus burst through with hints of tobacco and creamy fudge. It has vitality and backbone. 10 years of maturation in excellent American and European oak has developed this fantastic spirit into a real thoroughbred. Clean notes of sweet oak, praline, vanilla and milk chocolate rise up together and then subside to allow the marine citrus notes to come to the fore, the influence of coastal maturation is clear to see. Like waves break- ing on the shore they too recede to reveal the delicate floral notes of elderflower and gorse.
Palate: Allow the spirit to sit your tongue for a few seconds to warm and release its complex array of flavour. The creamy richness of its texture is a testament to the quality of both the highest quality Scottish malted barley and the work in the distillery 10 years prior to release its potential. The harmony with which the oak and malted barley reveal their sweet notes tell you this whisky is balanced and ready. The fruit is ripe peach honeydew melon, raisin and sultanas, then comes hints of ginger, lemon and honey in a rich assertive combination.
Finish: The finish long and floral. Alongside the long honeysuckle and rose notes lemon zest fades and allows delicate, exotic fruits like pineapple and melon to the fore. They too pass and leave just a hint of smoke from the charred american barrels.
Mood: There is nowhere quite like Islay, it is a special place in the world and this whisky, influenced so much by its place and the people who made it, proudly bears the Islay name on its bottle and the Islay soul in its spirit.
