  3. Falnor scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    That's a good example of how a distillate driven malt can be. About the score, perhaps 88 or 87. Anyway, briljant because of the age and also expensive while only looking at the age.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Bright and clean. Fresh yellow apple, also some unripe peach and fruit candies. Some Marshmellow, spongecake and porridge. A little earthy.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Oily mouthfeel, cake slightly buttery with some lemon that gives a fresh edge. White fruit like melon and pear with some brioche. Still fresh and clean, perhaps some seaweed?
    • Finish
      86 86
      Salty, malt and citrus.

    Really good stuff :-)
    • Nose
      89 89
      Rather sweet and only a vague hint of peat.
    • Taste
      87 87
      More typical Bruich, smokey, with some earthy tones, meaty and a bit malty
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish with wet branches and liquorice root.

    Spirit-driven

    I have tried this Laddie 2005 before, but either at a festival or a tasting, so I never published any notes. But it’s really very good, so I want to share them. Hence I scored a sample and jotted this down. The label is a reference to Sons of Anarchy and was (most likely) designed while while inebriated…

    Surprisingly sweet nose on vanilla, sugared lemon peel and pineapple. I even have some buttercups. Touch of oak, salty edge, barely any peat. Classic Laddie, but with a sugar lining, which makes it very attractive. Sweet malt and a hint of – don’t laugh – baby puke (which is not an off-note!).

    It is very spirit-driven, which in this case means it’s very clean, powerful, slightly oily, fruity and sweet with a lovely development of smoke, albeit delicate. White fruit and citrus stay in the lead.

    The finish is very long and smoky, putting a smile on my face.

    Very nice, salty sweet, but dangerously quaffable Laddie. Was around 115 EUR, but hard to find now.
