  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I think the colleague is pretty simple, but tasty. It invites you to take a long swallow.
    • Nose
      Shiny gold

      Starts with sweet, fruity smoke. Then the colleague immediately turns around and it goes in the "dirty" smoke direction. Surprising lightning-like interplay.
      On the one hand I find canned pineapple and at the same time a dry lime dust lays over it. Behind it are fresh grass notes.
      With a little time in the glass, Pattex and green grapes develop. The other light fruit notes in the background are now more in the fermented direction. In addition, a dried herbal aroma. If the colleague gets even more time, earthy strawberry will develop.
    • Taste
      Soft, almost watery appearance. But then there is a good portion of pepper and dry smoke. Mineral, dirty, it continues to develop. A certain honey sweetness pastes around in the mouth. Now also vanilla and a hint of liquorice.
      With the second sip more salt and again a fruity note that reminds me of strawberries. With chocolate and bitter almonds. But there is something else. A sour, light fruit sweetness. It sounds funny, but that's the way it is. ;-)
    • Finish
      Medium length. Mineral and again the dry smoke. At the very end the honey sweetness builds up again.

  4. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The Ledaig 12 year old from the independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail appears in the new Discovery Range in 2018. This series will always include three different bottlings, which were either stored in ex-bourbon casks, came from sherry casks or, like Ledaig, were distilled from peat malt. The storage of the Ledaig 12 Years G&M Discovery suggests an ex-bourbon cask. It is bottled uncolored at 43.0% vol.
