Yet another Laddie added to the shelf, The Scottish Barley Classic Laddie
Their entry level un-peated offering that replaced the Laddie 10,
Nothing but pure velvety Barley syrup and a buttery vanilla Oak cask influence
from American ex-bourbon barrels. no color added, non-chill filtered, and bottled at 50% Woohoo!!
more than makes up for missing out on more of the Glendronach 14 y/o Virgin Oak
It's very similar to my Bruichladdich Islay Barley ($68, Gold tin),
woody with subtle fruity tones of peach, pear and a touch of orange/lemon grapefruit.
I'm very impressed with the quality for the money from this Distillery
Currently looking for the Bere Barley version, a rare ancient barley that dates back to the Vikings
I've already located a Black Art 4.1 (23 y/o), B-Day is about 4 weeks away
I must say they have the most impressive painted embossed tins/bottles if you're into collecting them.
My B-Day bottle from last year Black Art 3.1 22 y/o Bourbon Matured with fine Red Wine finish
The best part about painted bottles is the wife can't see how much you've had,
...the bad part is you can't see how much is left.
