  1. 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.

    Sure, call it a designer whisky, but the nose in particular is a killer.

      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.

      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

      Dry with some minerality and pepper. Can't conceal its age at this stage.

  5. 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

  7. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Colour: gold
    Nose: light and sweet with malt notes, fruits, salt, spices, white fruits, perfume, red apples and duchess pears.
    Mouth: apples sourness, oak, spices, pears, apples and pears peels.
    Finish: long, sweet and dry with vanilla, apples, pears, oak, spices and pepper notes.
    Laddie Ten is a very good balanced tasty whisky.

  8. coldsun scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    Very deep flavor with rich elements of stewed fruits, spices, malt, milk, raisins and new wood. Taste is smooth and bold, malty with notes of sweet baking products, dried fruits, old butter and cream. Finish is a little bit spicy but still bold with sweet butter elements and cakes. Very tasty and very impressive (but could be more complex and not so spicy).
