    Ledaig and sherry barrels, especially PX, is just a perfect combination for me.

    a bit too one-dimensional in the mouth.

    Point
    • Nose
      88 88
      Versatile first nose. Dark fruit compote, somewhat fermented. Then maltiness, some bread dough. Then comes the greasy smoke. Not very interwoven. Everything lives side by side. The sweetness flashes through briefly and then the BBQ smoke takes over. Very strong maritime aroma overall.
      Vanilla can only be guessed at. The alcohol is nicely integrated.
      No water added. He loses with water.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Strong, peppery start. The smoke and the spice dominate here. The dark fruits only set a slight counterpoint. The mouth is very busy.

      Water also breaks the mouthfeel.
      Definitely the weakest part of this Ledaig's.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The mouth remains pleasantly warm. At least the flavor stays with the sound. Fits very well with the overall picture. A little too much bitterness that I would not have expected from a PX keg.

      Shortly before the end, the dark fruit notes appear again.

      Correct: Long finish.
