    The alcohol is so well integrated that I thought it was a ~50 degrees before having another look to my sample to realize it's more than 58. Very tasty, more malt than the last Ledaigs I've tasted, salt, ashes and red fruits, so delicious salty fruits. On top of that, a surprising but very welcome acidity. It's my first Amarone finish so I can't compare with others but I might be a fan. Or maybe it's just this beautiful Ledaig.

    Good palatable malt. There is definitely potential to dilute, but you don't necessarily have to. Quite tasty.
    • Nose
      sweetish, slightly greasy smoke, campfire, smells slightly dirty, slightly fruity, alcohol is well integrated, slightly salty and spicy. Herbs.
    • Taste
      smoky fruity start, spicy, later a bit hot and peppery, becoming a bit salty and oily towards the end
    • Finish
      fruity, smoky, a bit bitter and salty, medium length, becoming a bit leathery towards the end

    What an interesting Ledaig this is! It’s quite complex is an absurd, but good way. The amarone cask delivered a whisky that is full of farmy and earthy peat, honey glazed meat and red berries notes. If wouldn’t be drinking a full bottle of this, but it’s interesting to sit down with and ‘play’ with for an hour or so.

  5. Mascht scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    wild, dirty aromas, massively smoky and in addition sour red berries; but then tender and cuddly on the palate, I like it

  7. Bam scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Great whisky, very strong, but pleasantly sweet smoke. Not very complex but delicious.
    • Nose
      Sweet camp fire smoke with a trace of chlorine. Wild strawberries, honey ham, fried bacon, slightly salty, a bit of heather in the background.
    • Taste
      First, the wild strawberry, then the smoke comes along with the oak, dry mouth, the tongue slowly begins to tingle. Honey. A little vanilla.
    • Finish
      Medium long, is getting drier, the strawberries are now dried. The tingling remains long. At the end slightly dark.

    Nice composition with an extremely exciting nose

      Astonishingly diverse and exciting. Develops over peaty and smoky beginning over a maritime fruity and spicy fleshy towards a complex herbaceous and sweet-fruited experience.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The alcohol is well integrated, the texture pleasant, characterized by slightly smoky peaty herbs and red sweet fruits.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium long, pleasant mixture of smoke, oak bitterness and sweetness. Slightly malty and maritime salty.
