  1. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sure, call it a designer whisky, but the nose in particular is a killer.
    • Nose
      88 88
      I get quite a bit of peat on the nose. Then there's ripe tangerine, lychee, coal cellar, as well as a lactic aspect that I also found in the first edition of the Laddie Ten (but it's way softer and better integrated here). Very sweet and even a bit floral, with a coastal edge and some rather fresh oak. Amazingly complex for a ten-year-old, and pretty intense.
    • Taste

      First malty-sweet, then sour-fruity, before finally getting a bit more austere and bitter-salty. Good, but not as great and multifaceted as the nose.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Dry with some minerality and pepper. Can't conceal its age at this stage.

  2. Dramned! scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    In direct comparison to the old Ten, of course, there are immediately the beautiful sour fruits. The wine barrels used bring with it very nice notes. Only in too short departure he is a little disappointing. Overall, he is quite equal to the old ten and a worthy successor, who makes a very wonderful everyday dram with his saucy and a fairly fair pricing. Nothing for hypen, but to enjoy!
    • Nose
      A strong salty leathery-greasy spice, as used by Laddie. Then beautiful juicy citrus fruits - especially lemons and oranges, candied orange peels, gooseberries, fresh green apples, creamy vanilla, malt and freshly mown grain, the oak holds back pretty much, neither American nor European barrels set here really clear accents. No trace of smoke.
    • Taste
      In the mouth immediately dominates a beautiful malty sweetness with vanilla notes and a wonderful crème-brûlée feeling, then comes here also a rather acidic fruitiness, especially with oranges, the salt comes through well here, you always want to lick your lips. And the oak makes itself noticeable here and shows beautiful dry woody notes. The alcohol is not disturbing at any time.
    • Finish
      The finish is rather short to medium and I have primarily grassy and malty notes with a hint of oak and fruit.

  5. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A good bruichladdich always takes me back to visiting the distillery. this one is pretty good for the price I paid in 2017, namely £50, certainly a big step up from the classic laddie, it presents like a mix of classic laddie and local barley. 6/10
    • Nose
      Lovely barley sugar notes, nice restrained sherry contributing a little fresh plum. Bit raw, needs water, though it will remain slightly immature (chilli heat). Water unlocks sunflower seeds, 'meaty' grist, and a little cantaloupe. It reminds me a little bit of old blends which is no bad thing.
    • Taste
      The core is some serious barley sugar and fuzzy peaches, with a youthful acidic gooseberry tang. Next comes a bit of the sherry influence, just providing a little sweetness and richness, but it's mixed with jalapeno greenness and bitterness. It moves to grass-fed butter but nothing butyric, just good fat, through the medium finish, remaining spirit bitter

  8. Marsellus Wallace scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    For a "only" 10 year old a really great malt!
    Strong onset, balanced notes of oak, vanilla, caramel and light fruits.
    Medium length finish
