    I love this bottle. It has been a prized possession since a friend gifted it to me during a Christmas whisky swap. They were not quite sure what samples to send my way, so they opted for a full bottle they thought might be up my alley. They were 100% correct. My wife treasures the bottle even more than I do, and it has been a dependable pour— something you turn to after a long day or break out to pour for close friends. The bottle is almost gone, so while most of these brief reviews are things I have only written up notes for once, I have started to review this many times but never quite finished up the work. So here goes— an utterly pure example of what makes Ledaig great: citrusy, maritime, and funky.
    • Nose
      Meaty, maritime, and funky pool chemicals; salty Parma ham, hard cheese rind, charcoal, crab shells on the grill, lemon and butter, maritime brine and herbs, subtle pool chemicals and cleaning solutions.
    • Taste
      Medium-bodied, pepper, sea salt, citrus, rind, shiso leaf, lemon peel, herbal smoke, salty-mineral beach sand, toasted bread, mellow creamy funk, grilled mussels and crab shells, medicinal and sweet toward the end like a Ricola, sweet roasted peppers and brine.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering with grilled maritime meat, butter, lemon, and pepper.
