    I'm not a fancy Laddie friend, but this one, I like it a lot. Nothing for sulfur mimosas, because he has sulfur without a doubt. But you do not have to call it a bad grade, because in combination with the fruits and the chocolate notes that works very well.
    • Nose
      Yes, great, there he is right, the old Laddie cleaning rags. Missing is really only the baby milk puke ... but first of all a lot of marzipan, chocolate, fermented fruit. Zündholzabrieb. And you could get the impression that the Bordeaux barrel has done a great job, because such a fruity sweetness, such a smell of raspberries and strawberries has rarely come to me so far.
    • Taste
      Also undiluted extremely compatible on the tongue, with the Zündholzabrieb in the nose now grows to a capital sulfur note. However, do not misunderstand, that is the Malt very well (and also prevents the cleaning rags weiterfeudelt here). Raisins, dried figs, milk chocolate, nougat, marzipan, leather and tobacco notes. A lot of everything and intense.
    • Finish
      Medium long, slightly dry, with roasted aromas and notes of sulfur. Sweet grapes and ripe blackberries, spicy honey, fresh bread dough.

    Through and through a great malt, Laddie and wine let that in ;-)
    • Nose
      rarely experienced such a sour start, first the red wine notes are very dominant, then slowly the typical Laddiekäsenote and also a touch of sulfur can be found, something reminds me of glue, but then always turns into yogurt, red fruits , Cherry, yes shadow morels, a little nut, so from the refill bourbon barrel additively not really something came here,
    • Taste
      wow, fat, sulfur, yummy, nut, roasted aromas, cherry, light acidity, laddie, very pleasant, exciting, also here comes very short and light this sticky touch on, but more filigree than the flavors suggest, you might think that he dilutes a bit down from the mouth feeling, which does the intensity but no demolition
    • Finish
      Nutty, strong roasted aromas, hanuta, slightly dry and dry, the red wine is still on the palate, slightly acidic, nice long-lasting and warming
