    Delicious dram which is full of haselnuts, dried plums, and chocolate.
    • Nose
      90 90
      I smell directly caramel and a lot of wood from the cask, in the background nuts and chocolate. I also get some floral and sharp notes. After adding water, the smell is less sharp and reveals more malt, haselnuts, chocolate, and spicy notes of lovage. I also now smell sweet dried plums and raisins, and slight notes of sulfur. The smell of haselnuts is just delicious.

      Wow, on the palate I taste a lot of sherry, dried fruits, and chocolate.

      The finish is very sharp at the end and has hints of coffee and more dried plums.

    W2019:
    Heavy sherry on the nose with mold and nuts a little old oozing, peppery spices, herbs, a little soil too!
    the mouth is as heavy, black on the cherry confit, on this intense sherry almost to chew! it's syrupy too, the woody very strong too, and the alcohol is pretty well integrated.
    heavy and long finish on the same scents!

    EYE / NOSE
    Rich, brownish tone. Sherrysüße leads, followed by a slightly mentholische stitch of the cask strength and then it is relatively quickly very spicy in the nose. A touch of maggie herb and green pepper. A bouillon cube seems to have lost its way into the barrel ... Roast sauce ... if the Valinch holds that on the palate, what the nose here hints, I would probably blind rather typed on a Mortlach than a Laddie.

    PALATE
    Less alcoholic than I had feared. Nevertheless, a few drops of water help him to take a bit of his exuberant power and polish up the elegance a bit. Honey sweet, sweet - not bitter orange marmalade, the nuts I've already noticed in the nose, and again sherry without end. And there are the expected meaty notes, which already cried MORTLACH in the nose. Not unpleasant, but not necessarily my favorite nuances among the many sherry game types. In any case, after twelve years in the Fresh Sherry Barrel, I can not really make much of Laddie's basic character. No wonder, it should not go unmentioned. Really nice is that our CV 41 has no miss notes. Sulfur nil. Thanks, Adam!

    FINISH / CONCLUSION
    Behind the back he heats up properly. The sweet sherry with the nut and dried fruit flavors of figs and apricots gives it a very long finish overall, but it gets pretty dry. You have to like it. An unabridged Sherry Laddie without Zipp and Zapp. Pleasant digestive after an opulent meal, especially for red wine drinkers who appreciate a dry, rather mineral finish.

  5. ARDBERG scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Quite sweet on the nose, meaty on the palate and then much dryier in the finish than I expected. Clean and crisp, no sulphur of any kind and quite smooth and well matured for its age and strength. A whisky at a high level that will find its fans with no problem at all, though it is not 100% my dram as the sherry style is not my favourite one. Yes, I am c(s)herry picking here;-)
