    Complete

    The Whisky Jury, a relatively young Belgian bottler, has just released his very first Ledaig. Well, he does have only 8 releases out so far, including 3 Ben Nevis, 2 Laphroaig (albeit under the name Williamson) and 2 Caol Ila. This Ledaig – basically peated Tobermory – was distilled in 2010 and is a single cask at cask strength. So pale.

    Hurrah! Here we go again. I’ve only just put my nose in the glass and already I realize we’re in for a treat. The typical dirty notes of Ledaig are there: sheep stable, plasticine and smoked bacon. Some iodine and even wet rocks and then suddenly some very candy-like notes of vanilla, jelly beans and white chocolate. Olive oil and young apples make it picture perfect.

    It very creamy on the palate! Molten white chocolate with a (big) twist. Perfect strength, by the way. Sweet versus salty with a beautiful smokiness. Stock fish, green olives, apples, vanilla and a hint of lemon juice. Ashes and pepper in the background.

    The finish confirmed that this is a grand malt, very complete. Long, smoky, warm and evolves from salty to sweet. Candy floss at the death.

    What a lovely Ledaig, just the way I like it. 79 EUR? Take my money!

    This one can use some time in the glass. With a little water it becomes a beautiful whisky that is very fruity on the nose and yet gives a nice nice flavor profile for its young age.

    Definitely too young could have used a couple years in the wood to smooth the rough edges, a bit disappointing for a wj bottling

    scbp-2344, the aroma is slightly vigorous, but it is acceptable under the overall feeling of dirty, with few highlights and flavors. The taste is very light, and the knot is bitter. Overall it is a very average wine.

      Dirty smell. Smoked or oily smoke, burnt rubber, burnt Italian, bitter gourd, warm and dirty Chinese restaurant atmosphere, shallot oil, chicken juice, roasted leeks, lard, ginger, sea salt, soy sauce. 85

      It feels full of anxiety, and the entrance is a continuation of the dirty smell. Ginger, spring onion, oil, lemon juice, heavy herbs and bitterness. The acidity is strong and the thickness is relatively lacking, with bitterness, and the sesame pepper is closed. The oily feel is medium, salty, but very restrained, medium thickness, lack of mid-flavor, not astringent, and slightly bitter. p84b84

    Smell: plasticine / sea air and a hint of 'dirty shed' but certainly not disturbing ...

    Taste: Sweet / salty but also some peppery spiciness

    Finish: Nice and long with salt and peat
