- Cuvée # 2 ensnares the nose with the typical smoke, perfectly integrated into the sweetness of the Bordeaux barrel.
What a fulminant sweetness in the mouth ???? really cool just how the barrel and the smoke alternately put the handle in the hand. Incredible
the Bordeaux barrel leaves a pleasant dry note in the mouth. The salivation never stops. I want another sip right now. This is how whisky should taste !!
- An extremely powerful and sometimes impetuous Ledaig. Strong smoky notes and spices, which are hardly kept in check by a subtle sweetness. The influence of the refill Sherry and Bordeaux casks can be recognized on the nose at best. The addition of water makes the subtle fruity notes disappear.
I thank Kirsch Import e.K. for the complimentary sample!
Discreet smoke at the beginning, burnt wood with vanilla sweetness and some malted barley. Then fruity notes of citrus and grilled apricot mixed with a touch of red currant, and a hint of peat in the background. The high alcohol content is always present, but not pungent.
Very strong and intensely warming on the palate. Peppery, even some chili on the tongue. After the warmth fades, a dry sweetness of red currants and apricot jam emerges, followed by ginger spice, nutmeg and some oak. The whole is wrapped in fine peat smoke.
The finish is long lasting and warming, with some malty sweetness, smoke, ashes and cloves.
With water: After adding a few drops of water, the nose becomes much sharper with intense smoke and charcoal, followed by vanilla and sweet malted barley. The fruity notes are no longer noticeable. Clearly more tamed on the palate, but strongly prickling on the tongue. Smoke, dry oak, cloves and some ashes dominate. No sweetness or fruitiness noticeable. The finish is still long and somewhat warming with fine smoke, oak, nutmeg and cloves. At the very end a little sweet vanilla and barley sugar.
- absolutely recognizable (i hope), fat, Ledaig-ian peat taken to the um-pteenth by the high abv and the extreme sweetness... intensely creamy on the palate, with a good dose of spicy.. finish is on green wood and pepper. A fat 86 points from me!

- More grassy and hay in the nose than the other 5 batches. In taste a lot of sweetness, caramel besides peatsmoke. Less pepper, more sparkling, like carbon dioxide. Finish is stronger and more rich then nose and body.
Peatsmoke, also some fake leather, grassy, hay, cow stable, some smoke. Also some sweeter notes, no stinging alcohol. After some while, the nose floats away a little.
Sweet, caramel, pickering, pepper as well. Some chocolate. Sparkling mouthfeel. peatsmoke, ash.
Still pretty strong and pickering, peatsmoke, ashy, caramel, honey. A little bitter note underneath, long finish, it pickers on pretty long.
- Strong wild Ledaig. Much power. A bit impetuous.
Surprisingly sweet on the first approach. Honey, caramel waffles. Then pretty peppery. Strong tingling in the nose. Much malted barley. The smoke shows up quite late and then stays in the background.
After the first sip, it then shows a hint of fruity aromas that suggest the wine barrel. In addition, it is a little fresher, the smoke is ashier, and overall more maritime.
Strong and intense start. Creamy mouthfeel. Reverse sequence of aromas compared to nose. First I have the smoke, then a lot of pepper on my tongue. It becomes briefly sweet on the palate before the malt advances.
Long, smoky, dry. Dark chocolate.
