  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      88 88
      Earthy peat smoke, old rubber tyres, butter, salted caramel, some toffee, walnuts, almonds, rosemary, a bit of moldiness (not to the extent of decaying vegetation, but more subtle like a moist attic), sultana raisins, plum, oranges, peppery spiciness.
    • Taste
      89 89
      A creamy mouthfeel, burnt twigs, mildly ashy, a pleasant sherry sweetness, syrupy, dried apricots, a distant peach note, black liquorice, black pepper
    • Finish
      89 89
      Quite long: camp fire smoke, scorched wood, a juicy fruitiness, nutty, salted black liquorice.

    Very pleasant Ledaig expression. I have not been able to taste this one h2h with the 18y OB, but I believe this one goes in the same direction in terms if quality, nose and taste.

    Of course there are the typical Ledaig flavors which you reckognize from a mile distance. I do think however that the 19y is a bit fresher in both nose and taste. But who cares. This one is briliant as well.
