  2. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2003]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 79 Euro in October, 2002.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 90.  My notes state it is a very delicate, balanced and quaffable dram.

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1332
    • Nose
      Powerful and floury malt. Fruity (fresh apples cut at the moment). Attic with dusty wheat. Nice roundness.
    • Taste
      Touch fluid. Fruity, sweet and spicy (nutmeg)
    • Finish
      Rather tart, I expected something more round, but it's far from unpleasant.

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A old good Bruichladdich lovely. 
    • Nose
      Mellon balls in honey, lemon meringue,fresh apricot and kiwi. The oak fragrance unfolds  beautifully.
    • Taste
      Waves of sweet oak and barley sugar. Gentle warmth. Graceful balanced and vivacious. Complex.
    • Finish
      Silky smooth finish with zesty sea notes. Long and delicious .

  5. magic_slim scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I am always positively surprised, when I notice the price that this bottling still pays at auctions. 14 years after it was bottled it was sold for 94 € in the most recent Whiskyauction, although Laddies distilled in 1981 are usually much more expensive, specifically if Serge Valentin rated them 90 points (this rating was probably from a blind tasting for the Malt Maniac Awards, because he never published any tasting notes).

  7. BottleBox scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    It lacks the balance and balance I would expect at a 20 yo. In blind tasting I would probably never have estimated him 20 yo.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, Melted Butter, Ralfy would say, "a hint of smoke," lots of oak, bitter almond, orang, and a little bit of what is commonly known as Laddich's Cowshed
    • Taste
      Strong, oily, buttery, a pinch of pepper and then a long salty bitterness. Oak wood.
    • Finish
      Long, warm, strong, spicy

  8. Mushinico scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

  9. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N: fruits - pine apple, peach and apricot, cream, floral, vanilla, citrus, hay and some leather
    T: malty, some bitter fruits, hay, dusty, some wax, nutty and vanilla
    F: bitter, medium with caramel, mandarins, marshmallows, milk chocolate and some soft spices

    good nose, sample available on www.whiskysample.nl

  10. aby scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    a good but rather simple whisky  85-86p.
