    Tried from a friend's bottle, as I don't see much from Single Cask Nation make it to Canada at the moment. Supposedly a good refill sherry cask Ledaig, and retailed a bit over $100 as well when it released, so curious as to how this compares to the vatting of Glenfarclas they did a while ago.

    Colour: Light Amber

    Nose: Soft and sweet with vanilla, caramel, bacon fat, candied plums, cloves, ginger, allspice, sea salt and charcoal smoke

    Palate: Light baking spices build into more french vanilla, bacon grease, chocolate, cloves, mint, brown sugar and toasted almonds

    Finish: Medium to Long with smoked ham hock, roasted cashews and butter

    Pretty fun fatty style of Ledaig, although the sherry influence isn't as prominent as I'd expect. For the money I think there are better casks of Ledaig out there that retail well under this one so maybe best to look at those (particularly ones from Elixir Distillers and Blackadder.) Still a fun pour!

      Dirty, earthy, woody smoke, with a tinge of fruit. After a while it smells like a pepper/coffee-rubbed steak.
