    A powerful, delicious malt. A true Ledaig.
    Nose - Amazing nose develops from smoky fruits and berries to sophisticated peaty malt notes with spicy wood layers. Nice and complex.
    Taste - Taste delivers a great number of sensational notes - peat, dark fruits, sweet plums and slightly bitter orange peel.
    Finish - Very long and lingering. Soft peat, dark chocolate, mixed herbs and a little oak.
    A VERY nice malt.
