    After the first super delicious and dark fruit Laddiemore and the sugar bomb called Portmore, this Laddiemore presents itself as a dignified successor. With the combination of light fruits, vanilla, the white chocolate, the pleasant smoke and the great barrique spice, the concept "Laddiemore" shows this time from a different but also exciting and very pleasant side. I'm excited to see what comes next. Maybe a Bruich charlotte?
    • Nose
      In contrast to its sherry and wine-heavy predecessors, this laddiemore shows more of a light-fruity side in the nose. Aromas of physalis, papaya and sugared lime alternate very elegantly with pleasant grain notes, a little vanilla oak and a restrained but very pleasant smoke. One could almost think that it is a rum barrel maturation. In the background there is a cheesy, musty distillery character, albeit subtle. Over time, the exotic fruit flavors decrease somewhat and are replaced by soft vanilla, white chocolate and drier oak.
    • Taste
      The exotic fruits are also wonderful on the tongue. Aromatic and mouthwashing, these mix with creamy vanilla notes, lightly roasted milk coffee, white chocolate and a pleasant oak flavor. The whole thing is elegantly encased in a slightly moldy smoke.
    • Finish
      Now the wine barrels show through classic spicy barrique aromas. I have to think directly of the smell of a damp wine cellar with its old barrels. Together with a pleasantly musty smoke, white chocolate and a soft fruitiness (physicalism), this spice remains in the mouth for a relatively long time.

    Insanity how the BW regularly brings such bottlings to the start. Completely different from the first Laddiemore, but luckily also completely different from the second from this series (Portmore ....).

    Dirt, but this time also fruit, so pointed and edgy at the same time. Cool, completely past the mainstream and still a mega drinkable and delicious whisky.
    Smelling is really fun because it is so innovative and well done.
    The alcohol is not pushy and nicely integrated. Never had a 9 year old with this perfection in the glass. Top, top, top - that's what I like best about the story.

    The perfect malt for me because it's just different, but it's still so good. Comparable to a good 30-year-old whisky, which then costs three times as much ...

    Very successful, like the two predecessors, I love the sweet side of malt and you are in the right place here
    • Nose
      Time in the glass is definitely good for me, I wanted to start smelling and after the first 1-2 minutes I had a hard time smelling something and enjoying it, then I had to take a break for a quarter of an hour and when I came back suddenly another whisky, nice winey, sweet and sour, a little bit of sulfur, here also the typical Laddie-Muff cheese note, but definitely also sulfur, so smoke, if only hinted at, more Laddie than "more", red currant , creamy, shortbread, white chocolate, bright overall, goes more and more towards Sauternes, and I love Sauternes, beautiful and promising nose, only the "more" could come a little more in the mouth ;-)
    • Taste
      very creamy, yes here is the smoke, the rest in a mirror of the nose, sweet, sulfur, light acidity from the berries, white chocolate, roasted nuts, burnt toast, I love these beautiful roasted flavors, I could do one to one here now Write the same notes down, but overall much sweeter than the nose, nice, did I say that I love Sauternes?
    • Finish
      in the aftertaste the smoke gets through the most, so it is a journey from the Laddie in the nose to the Octomore in the finish and the Laddiemore can only be found while drinking, now exaggerated, very exciting in any case, the finish is very pleasant, slightly nutty, sweet, grapes on the palate, and long smoke
