    What a complex and intense Malt! Actually, my impressions need no conclusion except perhaps that the subtle sulfur note in my eyes does not interfere. A great and complex part, I like it very much!
    • Nose
      Dark sherry aroma lifts clumsily out of the Nosingglas. Dark and dried orange aroma blends with subtle roasted aromas and a creamy chocolate touch. An intense espresso note mingles with the sweeter note of chocolate, a touch of dried berries is created and gives the nose a special aroma. Some salt breaks through the chocolate sweetness, apricot slices play with orange slices while dark caramel appears. The roasted aromas become more intense, spicy and dry wood rises. With roasted nuts, the multi-layered nose goes on the offensive and invites you to the first sip.
    • Taste
      Roasted nuts and dark berries dominate the first impression. Spicy wood mixes with pine needles, a subtly sharp note spreads on the tongue. A hint of sulfur flashes, dried fruit and dry wood elements quickly forget the slowly developing sharpness. Warming and slightly tingling, a slightly harsh espresso aroma sets in, a small piece of dark chocolate melts in the mouth. Forest and fir aroma, forest honey and dark caramel, tart yet creamy, the taste goes into the finish.
    • Finish
      The dark and dry wood elements return, followed by a touch of sulfur. Dark and dried fruits stick to the tongue, espresso warms the palate. Again, a piece of dark chocolate melts on the tongue, slowly the finish with resinous forest aroma in the final phase. Dark and slightly tart wood aromas remain long and tasty in memory.

    At Laddie you get what you expect ... Sherry ... nothing more, nothing less ... Too bitter and sprightly on the finish. Will be boring after the second sip ...

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The beautiful color of the whisky has already suggested: Voluminous sherry aromas and a pronounced Nussigkeit with plenty of wood flow up out of my glass. The high alcohol content (55.7%) causes a slight tingling in the nose, which is not completely gone even after more than 20 minutes. Dark forest fruit marmalade, dates, plums and figs dominate on the fruity side, which have a minimal residual sweetness. Leather, tobacco leaves, strong spices, burned caramel, Rumtopf and spicy oak notes (Grandma's wall unit) give the whisky a contemplative "heaviness". A malt that would fit in nicely by the Nosing already wonderful to a blazing log fire, on a wet and rainy evening in the middle of November.
    • Taste
      With a tremendous, aromatic intensity pushes the powerful Malt. Freshly ground pepper dances on the tip of the tongue and a noticeable dryness sets in immediately. With the addition of a few drops of water, the malt remains very intense, but is more pleasing and harmonious. With an estimated 51-52% alcohol, I like the combination of acceleration, balance and aroma transport best. The fruit notes are fresher and sweeter, I register plenty of cherries and wild berries. Hints of dark chocolate, with a cocoa content of over 70%, burned caramel, a handful of walnuts, fresh espresso, leather, tobacco leaves, spicy oak notes and something mysterious mineral, refine the complex flavor structure. It is already dry and discreetly bitter on the palate.
    • Finish
      Long, intense and sweet and spicy. Surprisingly, the fruity sherry notes sparkle with a nice residual sweetness, which are gradually replaced by the heavy aromas. Toffee, leather and spicy oak notes immediately follow, before the pronounced nuttiness that is already noticeable during nosing takes on the flavor of the upper hand, leaving behind a noticeable dryness and slight bitterness on the palate.

    Absolutely great sherry hammer! Not necessarily pure, much powerful sherry; Great Single Cask by WhB!
    • Nose
      Dark dense sherry aromas, heavy wood tones, cocoa powder - all the way to dark chocolate, cigar box, school polish, leather armchair in the tasting room, fruits in rum (rum cherries), earthy and heavy; the whole thing is accompanied by a pronounced maritime touch - salt!
    • Taste
      Rum fruits and dark chocolate dominate, cigar box and smoke, grandpa's old leather armchair, earthy smoke, old (wet) wood, charred oak; not to forget the maritime impact!
    • Finish
      Powerful, long, warming and very expressive; strong astringent - dry!

    A really good young sherrymalt. The sherry is not on top and the whisky doesn't look too young. Because you could have guessed older. That fits. But there isn't really anything left of Bruichladdich.
    • Nose
      It's not just dark in the glass. Plum jam. Raisins. Aronia honey. Sloe. Slightly moldy red grapes. With cocoa and a few toasted notes. Gravy. In addition, rotten wood and forest floor. A little menthol tobacco keeps coming back.
    • Taste
      First, forest honey and sweet grape and cherry juice. Then the fruits become a little bit tart. Go towards wild berries. In addition, some darkened caramel. Then the wood flavor comes through and brings a pleasant but clearly peppery sharpness. It tingles on the tongue and begins to salivate. Then coffee with milk.
    • Finish
      A few wild berries are still there, but they are now rather sour. Black tea. Roasted nuts. Oak tones that turn a little bitter.

      What you see is what you get. This is sticky, wonderfully sticky. Coffee candy, caramel, raisin and mocha. But also something lighter; wild cherry and plum.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Mocha, blackberry juicy, dark cherry, raisin and spice.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Raisin, blackberry, caramel and mocha.

    It's all about dark, darker and darkest sherried whisky. This one is heavy and intense. Perhaps a little less sherry would be better. It can handle water just fine.
    • Nose
      Well, just look at it! What else to expect than intense and completely over the top sherried whisky?

      I hope you like chocolate cake, cocoa, and mocha because next to bonbons this is a dessert whisky. Even some cigar tobacco for after diner enjoyment.
    • Taste
      This one is more pronounced on the palate. The alcohol gives it more pepper and red fruit. Pralines and bitter dark chocolate sprinkles. The chocolate sherry overshadows the rest of the profile a bit. Some ice tea peach and cherries. With water included it will become a little fruitier and easier to drink.
    • Finish
      Very dark cold tea with some spicy wood. Roasted almonds and dry walnuts and sea salt.

  10. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The distillate does not matter, the barrel defines the malt. And that was very good. Lots of sherry, but also a certain balance. No tendency to sticky or too bitter and above all not sour. Therefore, succeeded.
    • Nose
      Lots of sherry, roses, dried fruits, but also tart oak notes.
    • Taste
      Strong, sweet, sherry, raisins, but also bitter with a lot of oak and a little bit salty.
    • Finish
      long on sherry and bitter oak notes
