    [June, 2017]  I had this during a "Laddie" tasting of the FoSM at Bonn.

    A perfect modern sherry maturation without any flaws, but there is not much of the Laddie left in this profile...
    • Nose
      90 90
      The colour is auburn and the texture shows a few fast legs and late fat tears. The nose is on a modern clean sherry profile with all the sherry-induced aromas like raisins, plums, nuts, dark chocolate and orange peelings. Really nice, it reminds me of some of the best young Glendronach bottlings.
    • Taste
      91 91
      The taste is comparable to the nose with a flawless modern sherry in a firm wooden structure. Water is not needed as it flattens the dram.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The dram arrives warming and coating in the mouth with no distracting moments. The finish is long and peppery with a minor astringent ending (paper).

    It would be hard to know which sherry was in the barrel before. A really great bottling. Somewhat different than initially expected, the Dramfool meets my taste. Beautiful Sherrynase, here still sweet and flattering. On the tongue and the finish then much more than just a sticky-sweet Sherrymonster, which is now often found. Instead, a malt that you blindly could appreciate 10 years older and offers many facets. A great barrel.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully sweet and fruity sherry nose, as the color suggests. Sugared red fruits, some plum jam, caramel notes. Behind a more bitter note, somehow reminds me of an old plank floor. This is by no means unpleasant, quite the contrary. Because this forms a wonderful contrast to the sweetness of the sherry and ensures that the laddie does not look set / superimposed. The alcohol is at best perceived as a slightly fresh note in the background. After a while I have raspberries (??) in the glass!
      Gorgeous nose. Acts significantly older than it actually is and offers much more than "just sherry".
    • Taste
      Not as sweet as you might have expected. Here the malt starts more spicy-dry. The sherry stays here in the background, it dominate the tart flavors. Spicy oak, some dark chocolate, unsweetened dried fruit. Acts here also much more mature than the age suggests, even the alcohol perfectly integrated - water really does not need it.
    • Finish
      Long finish, at first the sherry echoes a bit, before its notes slowly give way to the spicy wood notes. No sign of bitterness. Instead, a slight hint of smoke that makes the finish longer and longer.

    Couldn't find anything spirit driven. So it's all about the sherry!

    Sample from Henri
    • Nose
      Fruity, almond paste, winey, figs and dates. Some honey, nuts - almonds, syrup and sigar. The outside of a coconut, leather, the for me typical vomit modern Laddie note, some peat, cocao. Also spices and herbs. Very full and nice bourbon and rye looking Laddie.
    • Taste
      Orange, fruity - yellow fruits, carton and tobacco leafs. Brown spiced cookies - speculaas and some forest fruits.
    • Finish
      Chocolate, spices, fudge, citrus and a bit drying.
