- on a second tasting, i find that the first impression on the taste and finish were not quite accurate.. the nose remains great.
- the whisky took a nose dive.. but what a magnificent nose!!
sea salt, minerals, earth and.. somewhat in hiding, peat. clean and oily, with a touch of the medicinal.. lemon and mint gelatto. rosemary and oregano over some well matured goat cheese. if you insist with the searching, some engine-oil-dirty laundry will come up.
almost creamy.. the alcohol's aggressiveness is only to be guessed.. i'm reminded of the latest 10 CS Laphroaig by the interplay between red fruits, sweet spices and peat , but i prefer this one, as it holds its aromas better together.
bitter and a bit cloying.. not bad, but not much
- Young and smell the peat on the nose but the port seems to tone things down and compliments the experience.
There is also a very rich fruitcake smell mixed with spices and something slightly chemically.
The peat is there and so is a cardboardy taste to it and dry but it is pleasantly warming as it goes down.
(I added a few drops of water)
Masses of dark stewed fruit and it does improve with time but the taste fades too quick on the palate which is a negative.
Finish is fine but also drying.
- Port and Ledaig just fits! Super delicious here again. I could get into that kind of whisky.
Relatively vinous, heavy and dense, red fruits, sour cherry, with dirty smoke, a hint of the often-mentioned cowshed, some milk chocolate, the cherries are inlaid, a breeze of peppermint, after a while cherry and chocolate dominate me with a minty freshness, the barrel strength is noticeable and you have to be careful not to "smell" yourself
creamy, direct smoke, here also cowshed, really very classic Ledaig, greasy, then sweetness, port, cherry, it sticks, light acidity, then the chocolate, but more bitter than in the nose, need no water, the second sip is Chocolate right there and now lighter at the beginning, really a nice combination of cherry chocolate and the dirty Ledaig smoke
quite dry after the sweet start, nuts, dark chocolate, briefly slightly metallic, over time the chocolate becomes lighter again, in the end as if you had eaten Ritter Sport hazelnut, yes, I only had it a few days ago ;-)
Yes, the nuts are the highlight of the finish, I haven't had as much hazelnut in a long time
- Absolutely delicious combination of smoke and delicious sweet red fruits from the Port Wine Barrique cask!
I smell directly delicious salty smoke and the strong very winey notes from the Port Wine Barrique cask: ripe strawberries, cream.
The taste is very winey, peppery, and sweet. Absolutely gorgeous!
The finish is warm, smoke, a bit oaky, peppery, sweet, and again winey, winey, winey.
- A really nice combination of peat and port. Sweetness, overripe red and black fruits, peat and a drying finish. The only turndown is a little too much bitterness that I experienced. Overall still a very good priced and rewarding dram.
- Ledaig at it's best!
