  2. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very inaccessible and difficult without water. He benefits from adding water and is then much more pleasant.

    Chic Laddie, the barrel influence is holding back. Taking time for the whisky is recommended. Overall, a somewhat dry impression on the nutty-woody side with a chocolaty, slightly sweet and fruity touch.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Dry malt, vanilla, light, light wood, light chocolate, some caramel. With time, bright red fruits will shine through. Red berries, peaches, removes fresh and slightly tropical fruit notes, dry nuts.

      After the first sip, the fruits come through more clearly in the nose and make a darker, slightly boiled down and jam-like impression.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Pleasant spice, red fruits, somewhat dry, tart, light chocolate, light, light wood, slightly tangy citrus notes, strong, light tart coffee, removed burnt caramel, dark tart spices
    • Finish
      86 86
      Pleasantly spicy, slightly tart, getting a little drier, spicy wood, removes tart espresso, light dry-maritime touch.

  7. ARDBERG scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Laddie and Rivesaltes gang together. Red and yellow fruits with vanilla & creme caramel pudding with plum sauce. The plum intensifies in the mouth supported by a chocolatety sweetness and even more (conserved) plums with quite some cinnamon. Very lovely. We are not at a classic scotch malt here but rather a kind of eau de vie. But it is absolutely quaffable surely due to the fruitness and the sweet cinnamoned plums. The finish is quite long but gentle.

    Must be quite happy days with a dram like this....

    Good thing. The wine does not overlay the juice. Malt still gets through. The first impression is consistently positive at 56% and makes you want more if you like to have a slightly sweeter guy in the glass. 110 EUR for an 11 year old Laddie. Well - it is not a must.
