  1. Hemdl did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Expectations fully met. A really nice Laddie, which offers a wonderful interaction especially in the nose. The taste of Grenache Noir does not quite match my favorite of the series, the Château d'Yquem. But that does not detract from the quality of the malt. Again, you get a really good Bruichladdich from a special barrel for a fair price. In short - exactly what makes the series.
    • Nose
      Surprise, not even superimposed on the wine barrel, as one might expect from the color. Very nice! Of course there is a subtle berry mixture and a few red grapes. But not less vehemently there is also a mixture of cotton candy, caramel sweets, butter biscuits and malted barley. I really like this mixture of caramel, biscuits and barley, because it also reflects the Laddie character and shows that the interaction between the basic character and the barrel worked wonderfully here. Fresh and fruity, without being superimposed.
    • Taste
      Strong start, the cask strength pushes here already strong. Maybe he can handle a good shot of water, but I will leave that aside. On the palate, the malt is now much more influenced by the barrel. Rather dry (discreet!) And with a stronger influence of wine, the red fruits and some oak spices show up here. Too bad that the strong caramel note from the nose can only be guessed at here.
    • Finish
      Medium-long and dry, the fine spiciness comes out now stronger and in the end the feeling of having just drunk a heavy red wine. The fruit sweetness flashes briefly, but here dominated now the "heavy" of the wine barrel.

    Bold and fruity whisky. It's almost overpowered.
