Bruichladdich The Laddie Eight, 8 years old / 50% /We have been flooded lately with no age statement whiskies, usually released under tongue-breaking Gaelic names, thus Bruichladdich The Laddie Eight truly stands out. Instead of stories and legends it carries old-fashioned age statement, we know that the youngest component in the bottle is 8 years old. The whisky was aged in European and American oak barrels and bottled at pretty generous 50% abv. The Laddie Eight debuted in the spring of 2016 as part of Travel Retail range.
 
Nose: light and fresh, with delicate mineral notes, green apples, grapefruits, hay, dried flowers, lemon peel, vanilla, honey, touch of ginger and a whiff of sea breeze.
 
Palate: fresh, malty and grassy, apples, peaches, vanilla, lemon grass, fennel, notes of pepper and ginger, seaweed salad and delicate citrusy note.
 
Finish: medium long, with notes of vanilla, honey, orchard fruits and hints of oak and sea salt.
 
Buy bottle at Dom Whisky Online or in our whisky shop in Reda, Wejherowska 67.
