Very complex dram for 12 years. In my opinion the smoky notes differ in nose, taste and finish. There are hints of citrus cests, some fruity sweetness and notes of caramel.
Strong smoke note. While the 10 year old has this gentle dirty smoke this one is at the start really like burnt rubber. Then it is calming down. Smoked meat and leather. Some maritime notes. Iodine and salt. After some minutes there are caramel notes and vanilla as well as citrus cests. Nice for those who like peated malts.
it appears very oily in the glas and it also has this oily mouthfeeling. The smoke is more gentle like a burning campfire with some smoked meat. Then there are notes of citrus and some sweet fruits. While tasting it is the typical dirty smoke of Ledaig...not medicinal or burnt rubber definitely more farm like. Further there is a light note of salty caramel.
Quite long. Some fruity notes which stay for some time. The peatiness is actually again more the burnt rubber and not medicinal or like smoked meat.
