- Quite a good young Ledaig, in my opinion, if it was a even a bit dirtier it would be even better... but that's just me, I like my Ledaigs very dirty...
- Young & dirty, that's how I would describe our Ledaig. But I am not exaggerating when I say that this is one of the best young Ledaig I have come across. Only 50 bottles are available at mmmalts.com for 85 EUR a piece. You had better hurry.
It is nice and dirty on the nose, if you know what I mean. A touch farmy with hints of smoked bacon, mackerel on the barbecue, olive oil, oysters and iodine. Underneath is a lovely sweetness from apples, honey, lemon and melon. Some play-doh even. Lots of earth. My kind of Ledaig.
It is beautifully oily and soft on the spices. The sweet fruit arrives first - with apples in the lead - but then the malt shows its true nature: ashes, tar, pepper. A lovely smoke development with a beautiful salty edge appears. The second sip reveals some citrus fruit (grapefruit, lemon) and - when the smoke clears a little - even some candy sugar.
The finish is surprisingly long, warm and smoky with lots of citrus at the end. It dies a salty sweet death.
