    Had this 1oz sample last night, and I’m surprised to learn its 59%. Wow, drinks great for that abv, I would have guessed 50%.

    Really nice harmony between spirit and cask here. Lots of Ledaig funky, woolen, barnyard, minerality, with also a nice sweetness from the cask. Not too sweet, but a nice desert wine element. Apricots, pear, peach, golden raisins, pineapple. Really good.

    Absolutely nothing about this whisky is modest.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Neat the alc is a little agressive on the nose.
      Sweet and a tiny bit sour dark fruit.
      Peaty, heavy smoked ham, mineral.
      Some citrus, maybe grapefruit.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Heavy, creamy and oily. Almost breath taking.
      Peaty and very salty.
      Some sweet notes midway, caramel and jelly.
      Earthy wood notes, or maybe it's spicy soil?
    • Finish

      This is a long finish... and a bold one as well.
      Drying and slightly bitter at the very end.

    Amontillado is an Andalusian Sherry, produced in the Montilla region since the 18th century. Without going into detail that I do not control, the Amontillado is produced on a Fino base that will mutate 'abnormally' whose contact with the air is very limited to avoid rapid oxidation. It can also become Amontillado thanks to an additional fortification of alcohol, going from about 13% to 17% and finishing its maturation in old oak barrels. It is thus classified halfway between a Fino and an Olorosso, developing notes of wood, dried fruit and tobacco. The combination of these barrels and the peated whisky produced by the Tobermory distillery works particularly well. This is my taste anyway, as for the port casks in general. www.passionduwhisky.com
    • Nose
      Nose: fat and voluptuous peat as Ledaig can do. Leave him a few minutes to calm his ardor and you will receive tobacco, candied oranges, a minty presence, or pine. Milky caramel. The aeration will introduce the following, namely salt.
    • Taste
      Palate: This peat brings with it a massive dose of salt, it's impressive this instant domination. Overall it's Ledaig in all its splendor, with horses under the hood. Then we will touch something more fat, fruity, always with orange marmalade, a set of small black fruits. It's still very powerful.
    • Finish
      Final: The salt will persist, the peat will be more medicinal, with also elder syrup, berries and other small black fruits. Tobacco smoke. Camphor.

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very juicy and pushy, it is very young, but attractive with its spontaneity and fervor, if you are not afraid of light, but ubiquitous rubber motifs.
    • Nose
      An open, humid, smoke-peaty notes in the frame of raisins and wilted grapes, a leather jacket smelling of fire, smoked salmon, a cordite cord, new tires.
    • Taste
      Powerful, saturated, charcoal, peat, sweet raisin-confectionery notes, berry jam, young bark, rubber, burnt biscuits, plastic.
    • Finish
      Spicy, smoky-peat, warming, berry jam on burnt toast, ginger, lemon candied fruits, nuts, a little rubber.
