The color of this whisky is also original. The golden dress is quite appropriate, but it shows off rather whimsical orange highlights. I remind you that it is bottled at 53.3% alcohol.
A first nose on notes of earth and straw opens this tasting. The nose has a nice little farmy side. Then I smell nuts and wood. Of the Ledaig I have tasted so far, it has the deepest, most complex nose.
On the palate, what a surprise! A deluge of fruits of all kinds: pineapple, pear, orange, exotic fruits, coconut ... The lack of linearity is disconcerting. I finally find some notes of wood and maple syrup. And then, what sap.
The finish is astringent. I stay on the fruit, with coconut, lemon and apple. It is quite long.
Russian mountains ! A typical farmer nose of Ledaig which leads to a mouth as fruity as some Speyside malts ... This finish is, in my opinion, a real success as it has shaped this beautiful juice with finesse.
