    alcohol in the nose, then a lot of sweets, hay - not very pleasant. the taste is quite pleasant for a while - honey, chocolate, sweet - then there is unpleasant pepperiness and alcohol. unpleasant finish - alcoholic, one can find chocolate, cocoa

    I do love these Laddies. So refreshing, reminds me of (the now long-gone) summer. Not only sherry-bombs that are fit for sipping in November.

      Citrus and cereal. Malt sugar, honey. Sweet and spicy. Ground black pepper?

      Very coherent with the nose. Chili, not pepper this time, fresh, citrus and honeyed sweetness. Malty. Some lactic quality to it.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium long, lingering. More spiciness. Some bitter flavours coming through.

  7. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Surprisingly fruity with pears, citrus and passion fruit. Will be increasingly saltier and fresher. Beach walk.
    • Taste
      Firm salty onset with sparkling minerality, some grass, citrus and fruity notes of pear.
    • Finish
      Long, salty, maritime.

    Yeah, before, and the grass was greener and the base ten at Brukladi was that it was necessary - an excellent mole, extremely diverse in the components, rich and deep, pitey, cool, even you do not want to disassemble it, you just need to drink while you still have the opportunity. Eh, such basic mellows, yes in every line ...
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, processed wood of noble breeds, red wine, black currant, berry notes, strawberry jam, dried fruits-dried apricots, raisins; apple pastila, light shades of the barnyard, leavened wort.
    • Taste
        Saturated, sweet, berry-fruit abundance, candied fruits, exotic fruits, which is not there, the obvious presence of red wine, maybe even a port of ruby;
    • Finish
      Juicy, berry-fruit in the frame of wine and oak notes, creamy confectionery motifs.

    [October, 2012]  I had this dram during a Prof. Schobert "Islay" tasting at Bonn.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  At this time I took detailed notes of whisky only if it really interested me.

  10. Allandale scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A satin body. Not bad for his age.
    • Nose
      Fresh, clean. very soft sea air. Wild flowers among the dunes. A picnic at the beach. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Summer fruits. Passion fruit. Zesty,almost effervescent, Bruichladdich at its fruitiest.
    • Finish
      The flavours meld, with a late frisson of sharpness.
