3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. Tauti scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The alcohol sticks out a bit here. He needs water - have diluted to about 55%.
    Did Bruichladdich still work with slightly peated laddies spirit in 2005?

    In general: I think it's great that the sherry doesn't kill the spirit, but still leaves space for it. I find the spirit with the slight peat note great.
    • Nose
      Dry sherry, cheesy, tobacco, sea breeze, slightly acidic, mineral, sultanas, leather, menthol and some sleepers
    • Taste
      The Laddie character gets through well despite sherry. For me maritime salty with something cheesy.
      In addition caramel, oak wort, leather, cherries, sutanines slightly dirty the whole - the railroad tie (burned metal) easily gets through. As already in the nose slightly acidic and clear on the dry side.
    • Finish
      Medium, spicy, maritime, fruity-dry, somewhat bitter.

    I like the whisky the most with the addition of a little water
    • Nose
      Sweet, Caramel With water: still sweet, caramel, slightly spicy note, very little smoke
    • Taste
      Sweet, toffee, slightly salty, spicy and slightly smoky. Without water: less complex, but the basic flavors are present.
    • Finish
      Sweet, slightly smoky, pagan, sherry wood stays long.
