    These young Ledaig seem to be showing up quite frequently in my area, so let's delve into another Cadenhead dram.

    Wow, this is a real surprise, might be one of the best younger Ledaig's I've had in a while!

      Wow, earthy and rich! The peat smells like 11 years, very forefront, but fades on the nose as it opens. Earthy minerals and salty brine, very typical Ledaig/Tobermory notes here. Wet newsprint, dried straw and a touch of carpentry glue. Very reserved as it opens, almost a touch shy.

      There's the peat... Wow! Forefront, centre and aggressive! Salty dough, more of that farmy earth tone too; really delicious stuff. Hints of mothballs and barn lofts and warm tar. There's a surprising amount going in in this and it's very reminiscent of Ardbeg without that Citrus-y note.
    • Finish
      84 84
      This is where it loses me a bit. Pink rubber erasers and dusty oak, hot smoke and more tar pitch. It's a little one noted here, but the smoke carries on for quite a while. Hints of brine and sweet malt with a touch of Ledaig grime to it too.
