Swirl, swirl, swirl.... What do we have here? ...swirl, swirl, swirl... Just a little drop of Scotch Single Malt Whisky. And so much excitement around that. ...swirl, swirl... I think this snow white needs some drops of pure spring water to open up a little bit more. ...drop, drop, drop... ...swirl, swirl, swirl... Yes, that's fine. This LeChic comes with only above 50% abv - instead of the single casks, we had from SV in the last years. That fits, I think. ...swirl... Air and water help so much in this case. And an open mind. Yes, an open wallet helps, too. ...swirl... This is a little beast. Maybe you will call it sherry monster. Please not sherry bomb. But maybe sherry beast. ...swirl, swirl, swirl... Some salty liquorice anyone? Bitter-sweet. ...swirl... Be careful with water. Just some drops. Too much will kill it. ...swirl, swirl... This is a winter whisky. A winter fairytale from Scotland and Jerez. Huh. In which old and dusty bodega did this bota rest for over 100 years? ...swirl... Who walked through this bodega? Through the casks - äh - botas? ...swirl, swirl... The ghosts of fine sherry wine? ...swirl, swirl...
Oh, my glass is nearly empty. OK. That's enough dreaming.
This is a very good Ledaig with a heavy 3-year-sherry-finish in a historical cask. The whisky survived this treatment, but it is not a drink for beginners. And it is fragile. Be very careful with water! Just open the flower - then stop the watering.
And all the haters are quiet - Psssssshhhh.
