    First Ledaig and then such a good one. In terms of smell, it develops splendidly with time and air, the smoke takes a back seat and a fruity note comes more and more to the fore.
    In the mouth the undiluted is a real force, not only in terms of alcohol content, but also the aroma load that comes with it. Definitely smoother and more differentiated with water.
    Finish as expected, long and smoky-sweet.
    Very nicely balanced bottling, which I like a lot the first time!

      Despite the obvious peat it smells fresh and light. Some minerals, vanilla, a little wood. A little dirty note that continues where the minerals end.

      Very sweet still, very full mouth without being fatty or oily. Not to complex but very very nice. Peat is ever present and ever pleasent.
    • Finish

      Lasting warm finish. Nice combination of peat and sweetness.
