Laddie Classic

Laddie Classic

(46% ABV)

Designed by Jim McEwan to showcase the classic floral and elegant Bruichladdich style, Laddie Classic is matured in American oak bourbon casks and offers gentle pear, papaya and honeydew melon aromas on the nose, complemented by mellow oaky sweetness with vanilla notes. The flavours mirror the aromatics completely on the palate with an almost syrup-like texture and gentle warmth. The finish is long and fresh with lemon and lime notes. A balance which is an absolute integration of time, high quality oak and Scottish barley.

Octomore 4.2 Comus

Octomore 4.2 Comus

(61% ABV)

The most heavily peated whisky in the world Octomore is matured in the finest oak, impregnated with the legendary Sauternes sweet wine. Comus was the son of Bacchus (the god of wine) and Circe (a sorceress) but also a play written by poet John Milton and first performed in 1634. Aged 5 years, this is a limited edition of 18,000 bottles worldwide and the successor to the Octomore Orpheus.

Organic 2003

Organic 2003

(46% ABV)

Organic 2003 is Bruichladdich’s first organic release, coming from a particularly fine harvest of Chalice barley combined with a slow trickle-distillation and maturation in new oak. The result is the ‘creamiest’ spirit Bruichladdich has ever released. Lemon meringues, floral blossoms and fine citrus flavours on the nose are followed by a structured and intense palate with malted barley, buttery popcorn and fresh oak bourbon flavours. The texture is viscous and the green fruit notes are more pronounced.
