    99% tobermory, 1% spread ...

    I can´t tell the difference between an 24yo Ledaig which would have diminuished his smoky stile in these years, and a Tobermory filled in a ex-Ledaig-cask which has aquired Ledaig style equal in these long years.

    But if it was a mistake of the bottler, they should do it more often ;)
    Great "Ledaig", once more a great bottling :)

    A rarity and extraordinary specialty.
    According to the bottler and distillery, it is a Tobermory distillate, which was incorrectly filled into an Ex Ledaig Bourbon Cask immediately afterwards.
    As a result, the whisky is actually not peaty and smoky.
    It was only through the long storage in the smoky, peaty cask that these aromas were added.
    Plus a lot of vanilla, toffee, and coconut from the Bourbon Cask.
    Plus lots of fruit, light and dark, red berries, plus coastal and saltiness.
    Overall, the dirty aromas typical of Tobermory are largely missing, i.e. only a very small amount of engine oil, ash, and the like.
    Very balanced and complex overall structure.
    Very tasty and recommendable.

    Somehow not a Ledaig. I definitely found it very beautiful. I'll take a second glass too. But then please with some foudpairing. For me it was very appetizing. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/09/22/eine-beutel-voll-ledaig/

    this is an ex-ledaig cask, or from when ledaig was unpeated -- simply, the cask was marked ledaig. I don't really get peat at all. anyway, good dram and pretty unusual, definitely recommendable. 7/10
    • Nose
      banana yoghurt, flat lemonade, runts candy again (classy), slight seaweed, definitely a bit coastal.
    • Taste
      pretty fruity, strawberry yoghurt, and dusty funk. develops a little floral, and quite effervescent, slightly sherbet. quite a long finish with a bit of artichoke joining, and slightly lactic.
