    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.

    Mega Sauternes in the nose. The smoke note is also perfectly integrated. Unfortunately, it is a bit out of round in taste ...

  3. Lorion scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Overall wonderful. The nose is terrific. The undiluted palate is too ashy on one side. With the addition of a few drops of water, the palate also becomes excellent. In total there are 88 points. If the palate could keep up undiluted, then the 90s threshold would have been exceeded.
    • Nose
      Creamy sweetness. Intense smoke. A slight cooling eucalyptus note. Vanilla and soft, mild citrus aromas. A little chilled ice wine with freshly baked cookies. Grapefruit, but only the scent, not the acid - I like that very much!

      Water: It gets creamier. Bee Sting Cake.
    • Taste
      The start is very strong. Fiery smoke. Sparkling sweetness. Charred wood. Smoky honey. It becomes dry immediately after swallowing. Dry ash dominates the tasting. The sweetness fades. Coffee and roasted aromas are spreading. What a contrast program to the nose!

      Water: The palate is less powerful and sweeter. The smoke can also be tamed. It gets juicy. The sweetness also remains in the taste and mixes with the smoke. Water (just two drops) is incredibly good for the whisky.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Subtly bitter and ashy. After adding water there is also a honey sweetness.

    • Nose
      Warm smoke, greasy, full-bodied. Sweetly there and a not definable note for me ... reminiscent of Campbeltown, dirty, earthy?
      But very pleasant, alcohol can be felt and gives a juicy, almost greasy overall impression. Very pleasing.
    • Taste
      Very clear smoke, much smokier than in the nose. More warm campfire than cold ashtray.
      Herbal notes, tart, with light fruit. Everything very well integrated.
      Over time, grape notes are added, more sweetness as the smoke fades into the background.
    • Finish
      Salivation begins, clear smoke, viscous. In addition, warming and proving to taste even longer afterwards.

    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
