Bruichladdich Laddie Classic Edition 1 46%

from a purchased sample

Nose: Smoky, and there's a peat influence without really bringing the bog. Very playful with rich vanilla cake frosting. Maybe just a trace amount of lemon and malt. Cake batter, This isn't the most complex dram, but it's easy and smells delicious and substantial. Crystallized barley with a punch of salt, and some apple juice.

Palate: The alcohol and wood are a bit out of synch. Ashy, honey, vanilla, and more frosting, but the wood is dull, wet, and bitter-sour. Some sweet malt and salt.

Finish: Ok. Fairly rich. A nice assortment of flavors in an easy pleasing profile. The initial go of the palate docks this and keeps it from being a very good whisky. The finish is more on sweet malt, lemon, and whiffs of oil and ash. B-
