    Nose: barley sugar, lilacs, grilled nectarines with crème fraiche, orange peel, mango liquorice, overripe pineapple, geranium water and sugarcane, cayenne pepper coats the nostrils
    Palate: mango crumble and melonade, mangosteens and langoustines
    Finish: parma violets, saskatoon berries, sea salt flakes, panna cotta and honeydew melon

    With water
    Nose: becomes fruitier, sable grapes, milk jam, orange blossom water, greengage and cinnamon dusted apple fritters and butyric acid- the fumes still singe the nostrils
    Palate: applemint and lemonbalm, electric daisies
    Finish: lemon ice, cantaloupe, tinned lychees and saltwater

    More water leads to vanilla, dried yoghurt, mooncakes and pineapple buns on the nose, brings pineapple and oolong tea to the fore on the palate with a chilli hit followed by a gust of seaspray on the finish.

    A dram worth experimenting with

    Hot, wild, and funky— this Laddie might appeal to fans of the Classic Laddie and anyone else who loves a creamy, slightly spoiled, might-be-baby-vomit funk. Those notes are not my favorite, and this Laddie waded far deep into a sweet sticky lactic funk that did not vibe with me at all.

    While the flavor profile was not to my taste, I did enjoy the mouthfeel. It had a lovely rich viscosity that coated the palate, and the finish was intense and long-lasting as the lingering flavor notes melted into orange cream candies. It was a tad hot on the palate, but a few drops of water brought things in line, and I did notice from the first time I tried this to the last that the dram did quiet down a fair bit so that by my final tasting, I did not feel the need to add any water.

    Mental Image : Sandalwood Frozen Yogurt
    • Nose
      Citrus fruit, creamy funk, and malty pastries. Yogurt, funky soft cheese, and baby vomit— classic and instantly recognizable Laddie aromas. Citrus fruits with oranges and tangerines hung in the background. Salty sea air complemented by malty digestive biscuits and cinnamon sugar cookies.
    • Taste
      Medium to full-bodied with a viscous oily quality and a sweet profile of creamy funk, citrus, and wood. Sweet and sour notes of lemon curd, orange marmalade, double cream yogurt, fresh cheese, and sour cream. Oily and floral at times with lemon pepper and a mild saltiness. Toward the end were woody notes of sandalwood and dried bamboo.
    • Finish
      Lingering milk sugars and citrus candies
