    Nose: This is a sherry monster all right. We begin with some rubber and sweet dairy notes (think about Knafe (a middle eastern sweet pastry and goat cheese desert) in very sweet sauce, there’s a certain peaty note as well, which is much stronger than I’d expect to find in a Laddie which is usually very lightly Peated. red fruit, soaked in liquor as well as sultana and plum, sprinkled with pepper. It dos benefit well from a dash of water.

    Palate: Again, starting off with the rubbery notes, then off to peaty shores… Pepper, and new leather as well as red fruit jam, smoky nuts, buttered toast, getting bitter with a touch espresso. A few drops of water do help make this rounder and eliminate some of the rubber.

    Finish: Chocolate truffle filled with alcohol drenched cherries, peat, and quite a few tannins.

    Bottom Line:

    This is a very interesting, yet different sort of laddie. It’s peatier than most, and It’s one hell of a big Wine influenced (sherry, ok) dram. Some would love this, and some would have a hard time with the rubber notes, and the extra big sherry influence. I quite liked it and although I find myself drinking less and less sherry monsters, this one tickled my fancy. Its got a certain funky feel to it, yet with some water it does get very very good. It does need some time to breath,then you’re in for major fun.
