    In sum, not a bad but unfortunately not really convincing Laddie
    • Nose
      In the nose for the rather long maturity surprisingly fruity. Pears, apples and peaches, ripe but not overripe fruit, little sweetness. Very restrained vanilla tones. Amazingly little complexity.
    • Taste
      In my opinion, absolutely sensible abandonment of the cold filtration leads, in simple terms, to the preservation of the oils as a flavor carrier in the malt. Here at the Maltmann Laddie 23yo I honestly do not notice very much of it. It already lacks the velvety, creamy mouthfeel, which is often associated with the oils. The Maltman Laddie is by no means watered down or too weak, but it just does not make a real "Mmmhmmm-feeling" in the mouth. The malt has quite a few beautiful herbal notes, but for my taste too soon go into the bitterness. From the fruit remains the pear, still green rather than yellow.
    • Finish
      Pleasantly warming after a cool day in the fresh air. Short, slightly woody finish. Of course, the oak should be the cause. The barrel gives the Malt some bitterness that does not really convince me. In that case would have done no harm, to separate him already a few years earlier from the barrel. Stay back - but still - a few vanilla notes and a rather dry mouthfeel.
