Excerpt: When people ask me for examples of ‘good’ modern whiskies I can’t help but point to these Bruichladdich's. This combination of cleanliness, freshness and distillate character works extremely well and I love that they are making genuine efforts with the ingredients and not just the casks.

This is a release from Bruichladdich, on Islay, that seeks to highlight their organic practices, while sourcing ingredients from various farms.
Fresh baked bread, clove and yeasty sweetness. Honey, lemon tart, pepper, brine and lightly lactic character. Sweet, fruity, bread-y with a hint of pepper and brine.
Medium mouth feel. Rich vanilla cream, honey, lemon and brine. Faint ash smoke, lightly lactic again, lots of bread-y notes.
Long, growing far more smokey with ash, pepper, leather, tobacco and brine dominating with light, bread-y lemon dessert in the background.
Really great stuff. I've had it blind in the past and it led me to procure a bottle in the form of a great gift from a friend. Working through this was both delicious and enjoyable, and I look forward to trying other Laddie Organic editions when I can.
