Whisky Review: Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie

Tasting Notes: Bruichladdich, The Classic Laddie

This distillery has so much heart you can’t help fall in love with it.. and the drams aren’t too bad either. The Classic Laddie is unpeated, a nice one for those wanting to get into Islay whiskies but too scared to dive into a peaty scotch. Lovely dram – pairs well with the Water of Life movie.

Aroma: The Classic Laddie gives off raw, fresh, earthy notes on the nose. Salty sea air, medicinal notes and citrus, lemon freshness.

Palate: Followed by salty and earthy flavours, like stones or gravel. Yet there is a floral element of heather and tangy zesty lemon.

Finish: Spicy short finish.

Chelsey, Episode 1 Season 1

Published by Dram Fine

When whisky fanatics Chelsey and Pamela first met in 2017 for a work meeting, it ended in cocktails and many laughs. Fast forward two years, and the two are still drinking and laughing — but now they record it. Dram Fine was born out of the pair’s mutual love for the spirit, and the need for more female representation in the whisky podcasting world. Drinking whisky seems elitist and nerve-wracking to some, but it's to be enjoyed by all. This podcast replaces that exclusive vibe with a light-hearted approach to drinking scotch. Dram Fine was 9 months in the making. Shortly after recording the pilot episode, Pamela discovered she was expecting... then two weeks later, so did Chelsey! Unsurprisingly, planning out the rest of the season proved a challenge as they outlined each episode (while gasping for a sip!) With only a few weeks to go till the beginning of their motherhood journeys, Dram Fine is also the start of an exciting, new, whisky-filled personal project for these ladies. Dram Fine is your chance to follow their adventure and tune in with a nip.
