The nose puts you off, the palate tries to make it up but the result is not exciting.
Aged 15 Years, Limited Edition
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A sour scent of dry cider. Tangy, not pleasant. Unripe orange. A yeasty and sulphury note in the back.
Palate: Sweeter than the nose but still the citrussy sourness of unripe fruit. Touch of beeswax. Getting spicy.
Finish: Smoother than at start, biting in the back.
Comment: The nose puts you off, the palate tries to make it up but the result is not exciting.
Nose: Slightly edgy. Dry and slightly malty, a hint of dunnage warehouse then comes banana, crisp green eating apple.
Palate: Very lifted and effervescent. Light estery fruits to the fore. Lemon, lime and then Turkish yoghurt and honey cut with almond. Fragrant.
Comment: To me it is a classic balanced fresh sweet Laddie.
