- A malt deserves the time and should be enjoyed in good conversation before a fire in the fireplace. When it's freezing outside, fogging the windows and pounding the firewood inside '.
The nose promises pure enjoyment, absolutely classic, smells fruity sweet and elegant, exactly as a Sauternes storage should taste.
Very strong, very strong start, again a malt, which spreads a wonderful mouthfeel. The Laddie Brennereicharakter remains fully intact. Great malty notes, fresh pastries, as you wish. Reminiscent of an old, dignified Grain. In addition the sweet wine notes. Again, a light, peat-like smoke, which one perceives more about the nose than on the palate. Everything harmonizes perfectly, complements and completes.
Long sweet wine finish. He is different, not so fierce, but more complex, multi-faceted, altogether a very round and at the same time independent malt.
- All good things come to an end as this single cask quickly will but not
without leaving behind an almost spiritual experience for those who
Delicate and playful, you can sense it is holding something back apart
from the initial whispers of lemon peel, vanilla, ozone and nectarine.
Warm the glass in your hand and slowly comes passion fruit, apricot, a
hint of mint and salt, then rich oak and vanilla.
Take a sip and feel the incredible syrupy texture. As you experience the
amazing mouth feel, swirl the glass and wait for the legs to slowly
break and begin to run. The quality of slow and skilful distillation is
evident in the silky texture and the achingly slow progress made as the
drops make their way down the glass. Superior quality premier grand-cru
Sauternes and the amazing floral and delicate Bruichladdich spirit
combine in a match made in heaven.
The rich oak leaves a spicy and fruity memory of a one in a million dram.
- Full termed matured in a Chateau Yquem cask!
No ACE or finish, thats makes a fantastic nose and a long sweet fuity finish.
Simply Great. Order it now!
