Bruichladdich Islay Barley 50% abv, Non Chill Filtered and Natural Color
Bruichladdich Islay Barley is part 2 of the Wee Laddie tasting collection….I expect this to be better than the Classic Laddie which was a bit of a disappointment. Let’s see how the Islay Barley compares.
The smell is sweet honey, malt, orange/lemon peel, burnt sugar and some flowers. Really nice
The taste is sea salt, vanilla, honey, spice, almond, apples and pears – just excellent.
The finish is same as the taste – all of the same sea salt, honey, vanilla and almond flavors are fading out.
Wow – this is really nice. I was not expecting this at all. It has an Old Pulteney feel to it which is always welcomed in this house. Grab a bottle of this if you can. I should be able to grab a bottle of this around $60. It’s well worth it. I will certainly grab a bottle of this next time out. I can certainly see why Harrison Ford says this is his favorite Scotch.
Overall Grade: A
