  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I had tried it for the first time at the end of a day at the trade fair and was unable to get much out of it. Today he is 2 1/2 years later and probably with some oxidation in the not full sample vial. Not a whiskey that I would imagine as a whole bottle, but drinkable.
    • Nose
      A chocolate note comes through most clearly, with dirty, slightly steamed smoke with a little cowshed, the Ledaig sets the tone here at the beginning, with fresher grassy notes, a little citrus, light spice with pepper, greasy, malt, but generally everything seems slightly steamed
      After the first sip, the nose opens a bit, it becomes a bit fresher overall
    • Taste
      oily, chocolate, full-bodied, bittersweet, noticeable sherry flavor, light smoke, creamy, ashy, light spice, a breeze of coffee powder, I find the Glenallachie and above all the sherry more dominant
    • Finish
      then the Ledaig comes out better from the back, it gets dirty, smoky, nuts, dry mouthfeel, salt at the tip of the tongue, the chocolate gets darker, not bad at all
