BRUICHLADDICH Classic Laddie Scottish Barley 50%
Produced from 100% Scottish barley, this Bruichladdich unpeated single malt has been inspired by the Islay Barley and Organic Scottish Barley bottlings. Bottled at 50% ABV, this young, lively and floral whisky has no age statement.
THE BRAND The desire to take on new challenges at this distillery is so high that it would take almost an entire chapter to describe all the different experimental bottlings of the Bruichladdich single malt, created under the aegis of Mark Reynier and Jim McEwan. In addition to the “classic” range of unpeated whiskies, they have released peated malts (the 3D and Port Charlotte range, followed by Octomore, the spirit with the highest phenolic content ever seen), triple-distilled malts and even quadruple-distilled malts, not to mention the different casks used for maturation, a process the “laddies” prefer to call A.C.E (Additional Cask Enhancement) rather than “finishing”. Bought in 2012 by the French group Rémy Cointreau, the distillery seems to be moving towards the production of more classic styles using only 100% Scottish barley.
