Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 15-year-old

- Kale and smoked mettwurst in whisky form. Weird, but very independent and interesting, plus delicious. The whole thing is complemented by a memory of mushrooms and red fruits. I like it.
- Very good in balance, nice and strong, meets my taste quite well. Only a little unspectacular he is, but all the more supple.
Notes from a blind tasting.
That was probably the most civil Ledaig I ever had in the glass, apart from the really old ones.
A lot of acid at the beginning, yellow cooked fruits and a hint of garlic. After a longer life, otherwise almost unchanged except for the garlic. Much fall now, slightly angegoren, now also caramel. A bit meaty, I also feel a hint of smoke. With further time the smoke impression intensifies. Warmth first strengthens the fermentation notes enormously, as far as the smoke is concerned, I'm pretty sure now, cowshed and disinfectant. Now he is clearly fleshy again, smoked sausage, salty.
Bright, sweet, sour, fruity in a very harmonious interaction. Later some coffee. The alcohol is quite strong, the mouthfeel tight. He is very busy at all.
Still sweet, a hint of menthol and some ashes. The finish is quite long, it also warms slightly.
- a great Ledaig, many dark notes, initially very dry, but then it is always sweeter and sweeter
dense sweet smoke, bread crust, bacon, dried plum, mineral
first very dry, mouth-filling, beech smoke, a lot of tannins, sage tea, licorice, then sweeter with many dark fruits like plums and blackcurrant, caramel, walnuts, shoe polish, sheep's wool
very long, sweet, spicy and waxy
- Nose: Dirty smoke, full cannon Barbecuesauce, I have never tasted in a whisky. Boiled beef with cranberries, cherries with steak, salt, red grits. Due to the strong grill associations, I have to constantly think of grilled pasta noodles. Dark forest, earthy, a little musty, in the forest itself the grill because it was so nice again stoked and again red fruit as a dessert with sea air in the face. Over time, it becomes fruity: orange, overripe peach, currant, citrus and a bit of iodine and the wine barrel can be clearly identified after a long smell.
Mouth: very pleasant mouthfeel, sweet, chocolaty, then an onset I would have expected something stronger. Chocolate, spicy, orange, chai tea, latte, biscuit, no more barbecue, but the smoke stronger.
Departure: smoke, roasted aromas, dark chocolate, almonds, spice, hardly any fruitiness, the smoke remains dominant and lingers for a long time until it is replaced by oak and chocolate.
Goil! Really great filling, could have minimal more bums. The barbecue sauce is really crass and gives it a nice unique selling point. I liked that very much.
- Heavy nose. Baconous smoke with a slight sweetness.
Tasty very cool. Maritime notes and a warm camp fire smoke that stays in the mouth for a long time.
Much sweeter with water, but still the campfire. An incredibly great malt!
