  4. Koalafant scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    As so often, the Laddie spirit harmonizes well with the Weinfasslagerung, but it lacks something of complexity and character
    • Nose
      Mild and weinarting with notes of orange marmalade and slightly acidic touch. A hint of smoke. Later raspberries and redcurrants.
    • Taste
      Sauerer fruit compote with a slight sharpness. Little complex ... The sweetness fights against the acid
    • Finish
      Long and dry

    Nose big vanilla, oak, caramel. Attack on a slight tip of chemical strawberry that fades quickly. Too much alcohol, a little sugar and lots of tannin. Final quite short on alcohol. Ok, well, bad q / p.

  8. Ivynor scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Extremely strange. Unique, certainly, but not especially a whisky.
    • Nose
      My first whisky aged in wine casks. I am a bit worried...
      The nose is quite classic, on wood, vanilla, caramel. A little nuts and herbs. Alcohol is a little dissociated.
    • Taste
      Hulà ... what-what-it ... Hyper weird, strange, indescribable. After long hesitations: chewing gum, chemical flavors (strawberry), lots of wood, sugar and acidity.
    • Finish
      Still a lot of wood and a set that dries the palate slightly.

  9. granella2003 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sensations of butterscotch, vanilla.
    • Taste
      In the mouth feel is full, orange marmalade, dark chocolate, cherry liqueur.
    • Finish
      Ending with a sharp astringency that gives structure accompanied by a mix of red pepper, cocoa and wood.

  10. granella2003 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    It is a series of six assorted variations on a theme?: Namely Bruichladdich 16 years, aged in Bourbon barrels that have contained, and then evolved? in woods that have previously hosted the largest Chateau Bordeaux (Pomerol, Sauternes, Paulliac, Margaux, Lafleur, Lafite Rothschild). Each refinement in a subtly different way influence the distillate.
