Off the west coast of Scotland, there are more than 50 remote islands scattered called the Hebridean Islands. Only 15 of these islands are inhabited, but South Pole called Islay Island (pronounced “EYE-luh”), world famous for making Scotch whiskey. With a small population of only 1500 people and knew known by many as “Whiskey Island”, Islay, is the home of Bruichladdich, a distillery founded in 1881 which today distills 4 unique spirits, all bottled on site.
Bruichladdich is a Advanced distillery known for its experimentation of recipes and processes. Surname produces both unbleached (fine) and peated single malt Scotch whiskeys (one is a gin), challenges the status quo of distilled whiskey on the island and more.
The Classic Lady – Unbleached Scotch Whiskey
Recently, we had the opportunity to participate in a virtual test of Bruichladdich’s flagship spirit, The Classic Laddie. This unbleached and classic smokeless, floral and complex Scotch whiskey is matured in a variety of casks made with 100% Scottish barley and triple distilled.
While some people love peat scotch whiskeys with their smoky character, they’re certainly not for everyone. That’s where a spirit like Classic Laddie comes in. With a beautiful deep golden caramel color derived entirely from casks (no caramel added as other distilleries often do), this smooth and warm Scotch whiskey with malt, vanilla, and oak. , and its caramel, apple, and berry-like flavors are a delightful sip. Even for someone like me, who is completely new to Scotch whiskey, I could easily find myself sipping this to warm up on a chilly evening. Classic Lady’s striking Tiffany blue bottle is also remarkable. Not only is the color beautiful, but it also provides a wealth of information about the dish you are about to sip. It may sound odd, but only a handful of whiskey makers will share the provenance of what they distill. Bruichladdich believes you have a right to know what’s in your glass and how it goes. That is why the unique codes printed on the back of each bottle relate to each batch of whiskey produced. Our code 20/109 come in The Bruichladdich website reveals that our bottles are made from a total of 74 casks, 4 vintages, 3 barley varieties and 10 casks. Because it is a natural product and formulations can vary, each batch and bottle of The Classic Laddie will have slightly different flavors and aromas. This is part of the fun of drinking it.
