  1. Axel_87 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      89 89
      Fresh fruits, hay, flower meadow, slight acidity, alcohol present - slightly pungent, very sweet, notes of honey
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong start with a very present sweetness, honey, slight spiciness, the alcohol gives the sweetness a real kick, accompanied by smoke, cowshed, oily, slightly creamy texture.
      The smoke aromas become more extensive and stronger with each sip. You can see the oak barrel from behind
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium to long. The sweetness remains for a long time.
      The smoke stays with it and changes from fresh smoke to a stale campfire.

    The nose is dominated by a well-integrated smoky note, mixed with a scent of light bacon rind and a hint of ash. Despite the 60%! the alcohol doesn't stand out. Fruits and hay are kept in the background, you won't be killed by the PX barrel.
    A bit oily in the mouth with cold smoke and ash, but now the PX barrel comes. A nice heavy sweetness accompanied by honey and slightly burnt caramelized cherries.
    Ash dominates the finish, but the sweetness is retained. You get a slightly dry mouth and the smoke sticks.
    For me it could have stayed a little longer in the PX barrel, but it's still a delicious drop that is fun.

    Ledaig and PX just works. I'm looking forward to the next one, because the bottle didn't last very long ????????????
    • Nose
      88 88
      Typical Ledaig farm notes with sweet peat. Combined with a greasy BBQ with sherry chipottle sauce. The dirty way also reminds me of a smoker lid afterwards with sweet, cold ash.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Burnt smoker chips cooked in hay with lots of caramelized rock sugar and a handful of cherries (windfalls)
    • Finish
      87 87
      The small downer is that the finish is more ashy than sweet or the sweetness quickly turns into ashy. But that doesn't make it worse in principle, it keeps my BBQ associations in a logical order.

    Odor:
    Orange fruits, hay
    Alcohol is there and something noticeable (may also be at 60%).
    The smoke is wonderfully harmonious.

    Taste:
    Noticeable sweetness with dark honey
    The smoke unfolds bit by bit.
    When he breathes a little it becomes even more aromatic.

    Departure:
    Medium to long.
    The sweet taste is retained for a long time.
    The smoke also gets a nice kick again.

    Conclusion:
    A wonderful malt with a distinctive taste and wonderful smoke.
    From my point of view, thinning is not necessary and as far as I have tried it, it rather dampens the impression of the malt.
