    He is on the "Dirt scale" quite high up. Young, dirty savage. Do you like to stop, although artisanal there is no Bückware. Very leathery typical. The port barrel brings me Jamaikarum notes almost squaring the filthy thing.

    Ledaig friends should add 1-2 points to my rating. I am not the friend of this dirty characteristic.

      Same as the sherry (https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/132096/ledaig-2005-eld) but much denser and more concentrated. Fruit note is even more intense, prunes. Very cute. Bacon is even more present. Alcohol notes flashes every now and then.

      Very oily, strong ester note. Reminiscent of rum from Jamaica. Once rinsed in the mouth, the alcohol squeezes well. But then it looks very creamy and sweeter. Reminiscent of dark Kamdiszucker that has sucked as a child. Dark fruits from the port come along again and again. Water makes it a little Smoother, but you do not really need it if you have some staying power.

      Pretty long accompanied with subtle smoke. Rather unimportant ..

    Typical Ledaig, peaty & earthy and sweet due to the port influence, but not enough exciting for its price

    Massively spicy Ledaig, good stuff!
    • Nose
      Floral. Sweet fruits, spicy oak, smoked meats and camphor.
    • Taste
      Oily. Forest fruits, dry wood, honey and tons of spice.
    • Finish
      Long, dry, smoky.
