    review on ScotchWhisky.com  8.9 / 10 :NOSEBig and very exotic. Filled with a mix of dark fruits – fried black cherry is foremost – then a savoury spiciness of calamus, caraway and cumin mixed with hot adobe, a deliciously singed quality, shoeshine stand, then Walnut Whip. Water summons forth the Laddie oils, alongside scented wood and incense. PALATEThat thick black fruit sweetness continues on the tongue as the cherry and Sherry tussle with each other. The tannins are supple, just adding some control to the lush, savoury sweetness. Bittersweet and fascinating. FINISHI was struggling to place this oddly familiar bittersweet element when it struck me: it’s like a whisky-based Antica Formula. What a Rob Roy this would make! CONCLUSIONI popped into the Islay Whisky Shop just to say hello to Sally Christie and, during the inevitable conversational mayhem which ensued, I left with a bottle of this. I can’t resist a Sherry hoggie. Every home should have one of these. RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIMESipping communion wine after Mass. Incense still hanging in the air.
