700ml / 46% abv.
The definitive American oak-matured Bruichladdich, non chill-filtered and with no added colour. Distilled prior to the distillery's closure in 1994, this whisky encapsulates both the old and new at Bruichladdich. The premium expression in the Laddie series, taking pride of place above the excellent 10 and 16.
Nose: A sweet breakfast of warm banana bread drizzled with maple syrup and fresh citrussy top-notes.
Palate: Creamy vanilla and honey with a dash of lemon juice, all underpinned by a mealy, oatcakey texture.
Finish: This goes on and on, rolling and rollicking over the tongue like the waves on a Hebridean island.
