Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Ginger and cinnamon lead an array of sweet and spicy flavours: apple, cream, chocolate and lime.

    • Palate

      Softer than expected from the nose, with apple pies, brown sugar and tingly spice.

    • Finish

      Spice lingers, fading to reveal sticky caramel and apple sauce.

  • Producer's Notes

    • Character

      This is the Laddie on top of his game: sleek, stylish, sinewy, sexy, and honed to perfection. The unctuous viscosity of the spirit is flawless.

    • Colour

      Chestnut, russet gold.

    • Nose

      Sensational. One's first impression is "Wow! This is so fresh and pure I've just got to taste it", but be patient, continue to inhale, there is so much more to enjoy: the dry crispiness of the barley becomes the perfect partner for the fruits of distillation - gooseberry, pineapple, melon, pear. Stay with it and you will find the mellow sweetness of prime American oak emerging gently, bringing Brazil nut and caramel. Add to that a drift of banana cake and you are now in olfactory overdrive. But there is more! The incredible wild flower aromatics (which can only come from a spirit matured full- term on Islay) create a wondrous slipstream.

    • Palate

      The character and warming strength of the spirit upon entry is impressive. The aromatics never told the taste buds of this level of maturity. The sweet vanilla of Ozark Mountain oak is right up front bringing the structure with that hallmark homemade toffee flavour. The luscious freshness of fruit essence on mid palate is beautiful, performing alongside the delicious barley sugar, biscuity sweetness. It is show time for sure! The fresh floral notes have merged into a wild honey flavour which together with the marine/ lemon flavours highlight an illumination of the senses.

    • Finish

      Multi-layered, elegant and classy; its warmth, sweetness and totally natural flavours extend inexorably in to a mellow space and are totally memorable.

    • Mood

      Martini - any time, any place...

Customer Reviews

  • Matt,

    At the Laddie distillery recently. Tasted the majority of their range. We have 8 laddie's on our shelves and this one is probably the best. The real competition coming from our 18yo Signatory bottling. A fierce whisky with real character underneath, needs to be savoured. A little (I mean little) touch of water brings out the character, but too much kills it! Well worth every penny. Plus it's almost £10 cheaper here than at the distillery!
