Laddie Eight

The Laddie Eight expression is released to the Travel Retail market during April 2016. On the 14th of April a twitter tasting was hosted by World Duty Free, you can see the action back by following hashtag #whiskyex. The sample of the Laddie Eight that was send over by Bruichladdich (Thanks again guys!) tells us this whisky was distilled on 10-03-2008, from lot no L150824 16/044 and bottled on 15/03/2016 at 50%.

On the nose I smell apple juice, vanilla, malt, stewed pears, lemon, creamy, oranges, raisin and nut bread. The palate is vanilla sweet, grilled pineapple, honey, red pepper, malt, creamy, pink grapefruit, oranges, fudge, raspberries, peaches, light liquerish, bit of dry heather and light bitter marmalade notes. A medium length finish with notes of honey suckle and vanilla sweetness with touches of ginger and wood. Fresh, fruity and sweet balanced dram, scoring it an 7,5/10
