    For just 6 years, this Laddie has a lot to offer. Amazingly, I find the clear smoky note, which is still too decent for a Port Charlotte, but too strong for a "normal" Laddie. Was it rehearsed here with a Rhinns?
    Can definitely tolerate some water, leaves plenty of room to experiment.
    • Nose
      Youthful fresh, also the extremely high alcohol content is present. At 67.5% Vol. But little wonder.
      Sweet-dry sherry aromas, light sulfur behind. With some time in the glass, the sherry becomes clearer, the sweetness increases. The alcohol makes some space and leaves fruity aromas.
    • Taste
      Strong on the tongue, then surprisingly sweet on the tongue. The sherry here from the beginning much more present than in the nose.
      With a few drops of water, these sweet sherry flavors come out even more clearly, the malt will logically lose some of its snappy character. The smoke that appears in the finish is so far away perceptible, but not so strong
    • Finish
      Sweet and medium-long finish, which makes room for smoke in the end. This settles as a light ash on the palate. Where does he come from?
      With water clearly balanced, the sweetness is now nice and slowly into the smoke.
