  1. coldsun scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Flavor is rich, smoky and peaty, slightly alcoholic with notes of gum, asphalt after rain and engine oil. Taste is very bold and rich with notes of smoke, peat, medicinal, bandages. Finish keeps all tasting notes, it is very long, stable and little bit strong.

    22 + 22 + 22 + 22 = 88
    Elegant barrel full of fruit and the sea. I would love to take "to drink"

    21 21 21 21 84, good release, not a masterpiece, but tasty!

    and it is better not to look at the label, so as not to be sad :-(

  5. Torfding scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Something simple in the nose, immediately makes you think of Islay. A lot of peat smoke, bright fruits, finely ground pepper, some tar and salt dough.
    Dry oak in the mouth, very smoky, moist soil, salty, cereals.
    Great finish, long finish, salty droning and pleasant smoke.
    I like it well, simple but convincing.

    The Ledaig 1997/2017 by Rest and Be Thankful is a complex and peaty single malt with interesting flavors. This single cask bottling was distilled in 1997 and matured in barrel # 632. In 2017, 320 bottles were bottled at 51%.
    • Nose
      Pleasant, maritime notes and smoke combine.
    • Taste
      malty, full-bodied, with notes of tar and moist earth.
    • Finish
      beautiful lingering, with a hint of honey and dry smoke.
