Bruichladdich Distillery is about to present a (its first travel?) retail exclusive expression ‘Bruichladdich The Laddie Eight’ at this April’s IAADFS Duty Free Show of the Americas.
The switch towards complete transparency results in a new age statement whisky with an upgraded 50% ABV, rather rare for the travel retail market but very good news for the Laddie lovers. I'm already eager to put it side by side with the Laddie Ten!

- Travel Retail exclusive
- 50% ABV
The unpeated ‘Laddie Eight’ is a travel retail exclusive and the first released by head distiller Adam Hannett. His aim with this vatting is to preserve the Bruichladdich character: elegant, floral notes, a vibrant young spirit with aromas of salt and citrus.
Official tasting notes from BruichladdichLayer upon layer of oak from the casks used to create this dram give vanilla, lemon, honey, toffee and a creamy buttery texture and mouth feel. This dram has vitality, depth and mellowness as the classic Bruichladdich DNA of soft fruit and floral elegance mix with exotic fruit from such a variety of amazing oak.
