  14. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Tried at the Whisky Stammtisch, hence shorter notes.
    Very dry, but also cool Ledaig, but you have to be able to cope with extreme dryness.
    • Nose
      Spicy forest honey, camphor, nutmeg, ginger, chestnut, old, dry algae, brittle leather, cocoa beans, licorice, anise
    • Taste
      Liquorice, cocoa beans, fresh coffee, nutmeg, algae, pine nuts, capers, a lot of salt, a little black pepper and ginger, fresh leather
    • Finish
      Furthermore very dry, tree resin, leather, malt, tannins
