Wow, massive. Most intense Ledaig I’ve had, I think. It’s not my favourite style of Ledaig, and lacks balance in my opinion. The first cask must have been pretty inactive, I can see why they went this route, but for a wine maturation Ledaig I preferred the 2005 Hermitage by G&M.
Very peated, even for a Ledaig. Earthy peat, vegetal peat, wet dog, a bit on the winey side. but it’s very naked for 17 years I can see why they got impatient.
Oily sweet and viscous, Chardonnay, ashy, capers, very briney, green olives, oysters with lemon granita.
Enormous, very long, billowing smoke, burning plastic, wet wool, acidic.
