    delicious, sweet malt. Creamy and a nice summer dram

  4. maltaholic scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Delicious.
    Spicy, not smoky, strong.
    Well.

  5. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The nose shouts out "local barley" and "terroir" and is definitely the highlight here. The palate is simpler but after a few sipping it's definitely tasty and quaffable.
    Good job and vive le terroir !
    • Nose
      A walk in the fields with fresh hay, grass and earthy notes (a peat bog is probably not far). But you brought a fruits basket with you : apples, pears, peaches, apricots, lemons and grapefruits.
    • Taste
      The attack is punchy, zesty and spicy (pepper and cloves). Next sippings are still spicy but oily, malty, fruity (citrus, apples), slightly mineral and salty too.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy and zesty.

  6. Mr.Wong scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Fruity, malty Bruichladdich. Not as winey as the Classic Laddie.
    • Nose
      Barley, sweet fruits, citrus, wine, aldehydic, floral, vanilla
    • Taste
      Sweet fruits, malty, winey
    • Finish
      Sweet fruits, winey, dark chocolate

    N- Rather exciting annual releases featuring barley grown at different farms on Islay. Grilled juicy starfruits and grapefruits with pinch of umami over gasoline coal pit, baked oyster shell and the identical salted caramel. Bold strength with delicate oak that enhance the sweetness from the American cask with a marine tang. (88/22)

    P- Savoury sweet, oily with pungent phenol and warm bonfire from the charred wood. Spicy, sweet tobacco smokes and underlying citrus-y that make u feel like slurps on a salty rocked oyster. (87/21)

    F- Long, balanced of sweet malt with fine marine influence, solidness and the weight are felt with satisfying heart warming finish. Unpeated with a peated feels to it, must be the mischievous "peat scented" air on the Island. (89/22)

    B/B- 89/22.

    Cereal- 3 / Fruity- 3 / Floral- 1 / Peaty- 1 / Feinty- 1 / Sulphur- 1 / Woody- 3 / Winery- 2

    Weighted Rate- 87pt. Better than 2010, but still liking the 2019 release.

    Nice and young. With grapes and saltiness. Hints of smoke und tabacco. Malt and honey. Apricots and pears. On top of all that quality and transparency! Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/03/05/ein-junger-laddi/

    • Nose
      86 86
      green fruits such as grapes and pears, cowsheds and some cheese are even discreetly represented, Leibniz biscuits, cereals, vanilla, caramel
    • Taste
      86 86
      Malty-sweet, lots of Gereide, apricots, grapes, fresh young wood, a little sugar beet syrup, lemon and strawberries in the background
    • Finish
      85 85
      short, slightly sour and a bit dry, warming and spicy

  10. Pardes scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Unpeated is not an attractive word to me. But on first nose, this is something special.
    Dry. Spicy.
    The taste is incredible. This is the unseated whisky for peated whisky lovers!

    No water needed.
