THIS IS GOOD STUFF!!! Is this then the big difference between the native Bere barley and the modern (way to engineered) Barleys like optic, golden promise and so on? I know one thing for sure. This will be a permanent part in my pantry.
Oh man this is good! A nice, light delicate fresh nose, which is oily at the same time. There's a lot of grassy, malty and minty/eucalyptus notes inhere. Barley and fresh light fruits. really interesting and something different. Despite of it's light and fresh character, i'm actually impressed by the body it comes on.
It continues to be fresh, light and delicate. Again tons of grassy notes accompanied with some vanilla and light spices. it's quite full bodied.
a little sharp at first. grains/cereals are there with some honey. And it leaves you with a fresh mouthfeel
This whisky is proof that the barley used has an influence on the character of the distillate. In addition to the significant grain Laddie offers everything that has to offer a representative of the distillery of the ex-Bourbon barrel: fruits, sweetness, pastries .... Everything is razor-sharp accuracy and cleanliness lined up.
Very clean, fresh, fruity and yet clearly influenced by the used Bere Barley. Honeydew melon, green apple, lemon and syrup. In addition a lot of caramel, vanilla and cane sugar. In addition freshly baked bread and freshly ground grain. A malty, sweet, cereal note compliments everything. No alcohol and no oak wood noticeable.
Fruit bread, apples, pears and again very strong cereal notes. Malt candy, caramel, honey and starting seasoning of oak barrels. Again, the alcohol is well integrated and does not bother.
Medium long and alternately fruity-sweet and spicy. Now strengthen again the citrus fruits. Orange peel. Toasted bread and a very tender tart note on the palate.
