Color
Deep copper
Nose

Sweet and peaty, smoked meat, diesel, salty liquorice, citrus fruit, some tropical fruits, cinnamon, vanilla, malt. After a while there is some wet wood, tobacco and something like an ashtray full of ash.

Taste

Full and firm, peat, again some smoked meat, some citrus, cinnamon and some creamy toffee.

Finish

Reasonable long finish, peat with some tobacco. Becomes somewhat dry with some sweetness and fruitiness, liquorice.

Comments

I like Ledaig and this one fits right up my alley.

Nose: Peaty and smoky as expected but there's some fruits as well. Caramel fudge to top it off.

Taste: Red fruit, berries, sweet honey notes. Again some caramel. The peatsmoke is there but not too much.

Finish: Nice and long. The sweetness of the red fruit circles around the smoky peat notes.

Whisky is more than just liqor, it's a hobby.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Fresh, vegetal peat with a touch of lemon and some broccoli as well... Hints of salty bacon, smoked paprika powder and cured meat, with finally some black peppercorns.

Taste

Ashy, lots of charcoal and very smoky. The bacon makes an encore, as does the cured meat. There's a subtle spiciness, as well as a hint of cigarette tobacco. Quite delicious.

Finish

Lingers on peat. Slightly drying. Long...

Comments

The octave certainly did its job, giving this a new layer that most ex-bourbon matured Ledaig don't have. That's not to say that this is better per se than your average 10 year old Ledaig from a bourbon cask, because those can be excellent. It is however different, and absolutely delicious too.
