  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This has some very good aspects, yet I do believe it has overstayed its welcome a bit, and maybe should've been bottled a wee bit earlier. Regardless, this is far from a dime a dozen dram, and has boatloads of character.
    • Nose
      Big notes of pear skin and stewed pear, as well as peach, followed by a touch of brown sugar and banana. Lovely floral as well, with just a hint of almond. Overall though, this has a thin, citrus-y veneer.
    • Taste
      Quite oily, arriving with big citrus notes—pickled lemon and tangerine mainly—before moving on to dryer, oak-y flavours. Soft spices, slightly bitter. A touch of leather as well.
    • Finish
      Very dry and oak-y. Ending on notes of yellow fruit.

    Very very nice nose (fruity, floral and delicious). It almost feels like in the Lowlands.

    Character

    This 25 years old Laddie was selected by the Dutch importer Bresser & Timmer. No less than 240 bottles of this stuff went to my northerly neighbors.

    Ooh, yes, this is a very good nose. Kiwi skins, pears, peach and a hint of mashed banana with light brown sugar. Some nuts and a mild note of woodsmoke. Wonderful.

    Good body, mildly oily and spicy. White pepper and baker’s spices that put a prickling layer on a basket full of citrus fruit (think mandarin and grapefruit). The a bitterness as if from grape pith follows. Surprisingly mineral as well, as if I have pebbles in my mouth.

    The finish is nicely long and offers mostly yellow fruit, followed by some leather. It leaves the mouth fairly dry, but that’s not a problem.

    Very characterful Laddie that survived its 25 years in the cask with grace.

  5. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant bourbon Bruichladdich.
    • Nose
      Floral. Bloomy pear, unripe banana, hay and bitter almonds.
    • Taste
      Oily. Citruses, honey, bourbon vanilla, caramel, walnut, oak, nutmeg and white pepper.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, dry, oaky.

  6. Koning scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Very nice summer whisky, but lacks the complex and depth of the excellent 1992 vintages bottled by Cadenhead.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Light smoke, lemon sorbet, grapefruits
    • Taste
      87 87
      Thick and oily on the palate. Loads of citrus fruits, a bit mineral
    • Finish
      87 87
      Lingering, on fresh fruits and a bit of leather and the lightest smoke.
