  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Smoke & vanilla on the nose with a little fig & Turkish delight.

    Palate is pleasantly smokey but too much oak is coming through.

    Finish is ok but it fades too quickly.

    With water it does get sweeter but not worth the money for a full bottle

    First-class nose, the taste can not quite keep up. Overall, a beautiful and elegant whisky, although he can not quite break the 90s mark. For this he lacks the complexity, despite the age, which decreases after the nose. Nevertheless, a beautiful and mature malt, as it is now hardly found. Unfortunately, the prices for these and the sister bottlings are completely absurd.
    • Nose
      Old and mature. Deep and strong fruit notes, mainly tropical fruits (pineapple, melon). In addition a few Honignoten and discreet oak in the background. No miss notes, no alcohol. After some time, a few more notes of zirconium are added. Beautiful, elegant and fruity nose. Makes you want to more!
    • Taste
      Needs a short moment to unfold on the tongue, which is probably owed to just 41% Vol. Here not quite as fruity, but not too influenced by the oak. This is shown by a few spicy and slightly dry notes, but does not dominate too strong. Here is still the hint of fruit notes, but now instead of the tropical scents going towards green fruits / apples. The sweetness of the nose does not appear in this form anymore.
    • Finish
      Long, astringent. The oak provides a dry mouthfeel at the end, while the malt in the throat cheers again. The fruit notes here are no longer really felt, but beats the whole age of the barrels too much. No bitterness.

When this elegant whisky is mixed with a number of smoke samples, it is not right. http://smad.se/provningar/Provning%2077%20Islay%20Special.html

    Well, I'm not exactly a Laddie fan, but more of such drams and it could change. Upper middle class is this legacy anyway.
    • Nose
      Hm, beautiful nose with floral aromas, all in all quite floral, hazelnut, lime (citrus). Really a round Dram, as you rarely find it. The nose after probably unpeated.
    • Taste
      Only 41%? Hard to believe. Maybe not quite the depth as in the nose, but still a balanced malt with surprisingly well-defined fruit flavors.
    • Finish
      Good in the long run, again very strong and now again a few slivers of hazelnut, which were previously pulled by NEN fruit pot.
