This is the second edition of the Laddie Ten which was released as a limited edition after the first one was cancelled a couple years ago. It is bottled at 50% ABV compared to the 46% ABV of the original. It was drawn from a combination of bourbon, sherry, and french wine casks.
Nose: Chocolate chip banana pancakes, cherry cough drops, slightly grassy with playdough, and a bit of baby vomit.
Palate: Buttermlik/sour malt with biting green apple, sharp oak, black pepper, and fermented rice.
Finish: Dry oak and sour malt lingering with green apple overtones.
Rating: 82/100 – Quite funky (as is the case with a lot of young Bruichladdich for me), but enjoyable.
Value for the money: This was released with a retail of $60 which is a decent price for what you get. I wouldn’t pay more for it though since this is discontinued, but I doubt there’s a large secondary market for this bottle.
