Released in 2001 , the 20yo is vatted from 100% ex-bourbon casks , definitely a Classic Laddie…….
At Laddies customary strength of 46% abv (unchillfiltered and natural colour) , this is a lovely Barley Sugar colour , The nose is of Lemon Drizzle Cake , Honey , Melon and fresh meadows . This has a very thick mouthfeel , the palate is very fresh , fudgy and again Lemon Drizzle cake . The finish is long , fudgy and very smooth …. wow , fantastic !
This is fresh , invigorating , well balanced and a whole lot better than what came before ! A lot dryer than any other Laddie i can remember , this distillery certainly improves with age !
