This 1984 Vintage Bottling released in 2002 is vatted from 20% Fino Sherry , 20% Oloroso Sherry and 60% Bourbon Casks . The abv is 46% , it is non-chillfiltered , uncoloured and is a limited release of 6000.
The colour of polished copper , the nose has quite a sherried smell to it at first , then lemon emerges followed by the Laddie green fruits , creamy fudge , sea air and malt . The lemon and sherry seem to dominate the others though , it is silky smooth over the palate , lemon and honey with a sherry dryness , green fruits and fudge . The palate is extremely well balanced , The finish is . long , dry and sherried , with more than a hint of mint humbugs .
When this was released it didn’t go down as well as the 1970 it was released with , which was a shame as i thought this was a very good Laddie , i thoroughly enjoy it’s company when i revisit it !
