Bruichladdich’s flagship single malt, The Laddie Ten, has been selected to feature in the latest edition of Ian Buxton’s book, ’101 World Whiskies to Try before You Die’.
The Laddie Ten is the first spirit made since the Islay distillery was bought out by a consortium in 2001 to be bottled, and is malted from only Scottish barley, slow-fermented for purity, trickle-distilled for creamy texture and cask-filled at 70% for extra flavour.
Bruichladdich’s founder and Managing Director, Mark Reynier, said in a media release: “We are very pleased that The Laddie Ten has been included already, it having been released only nine months ago. Buxton’s book is a practical guide to the world of whisky, featuring everyday, affordable and readily available whiskies.
“The Laddie Ten Year Old is is without doubt the most important release in Bruichladdich’s history and very much a landmark for the distillery.”
The 2012 edition of ’101 World Whiskies to Try before You Die’ will be published on 5th July and is available to reserve via Amazon.
