Laddie 10 Wins Democratic Vote
Monday, 5 December 2011 POSTED BY Michael Thomson IN News
Whisky awards are as democratically chosen as an Italian or Greek head of state is these days. But sometimes the people do speak.
Whisky customers of the award-winning Loch Fyne Whiskies have voted the Laddie their favourite whisky of the year.
Bruichladdich MD Mark Reynier said, “The truest, the purest form of recognition for any whisky is by the consumer, whether the knowledgeable connoisseur or the enthusiastic amateur. They are the ones that put their money where their mouth is.”
“We are very proud that the customers of the UK’s most famous whisky specialist have voted our new arrival, “The Laddie 10”, as Whisky of the Year. That approval means a great deal to everyone at Bruichladdich.”
The citation reads: “The nomination comes as a result of our many customers’ reaction after an in-shop tasting - the most democratic possible of all recognition by those who actually buy it, a reflection of the quality, wide appreciation, and value of the whisky. Bruichladdich’s new 10 year old whisky The Laddie Ten was a clear choice, a complex single malt with a great flavour experience that changes over time, and stays in the mouth and memory for a long time.”
