    An amazing single cask, super drinkable despite the high ABV grade, a very balanced Ledaig full of flavors.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very marine, algae, brackish hints, evident burnt peat, with hints of ash and soot. Sweet apple, cedar and pepper.

      The alcohol is not felt, only slightly in the throat despite the gradation. Very oily, consistent with the nose, but the sweet and fruity part is more evident with a beautiful note of vanilla that comes out. Still apple, vanilla apple pie, but then hints of smoked fish, salt, sea water, and a beautiful note of embers emerge. Very good and balanced despite the young age and the ABV.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Burnt peat, acrid, dirty, very long, then candied citron, vanilla sugar and pepper
