    Amazing complexity and taste. Significant peat and very sweet. The cask is rather predominant. One of my all-time favorites.

    Price-performance fits here. Very fine drink, which unfortunately is sold out almost everywhere

      Fruity, you can smell the years in the barrel; Citrus fruits, some grapes, noticeably dried fruits and a little vanilla hit the nose immediately. Fine smell that sets high expectations.

      Peaty, yet sweet and creamy. The fruit taste gives way to the peaty, smoky and medicinal ... it really has steam.

      .... like after a good Havana. A trace of fine toffee rounds off the long-lasting enjoyment.

    Wow, this is a great dram. Thick and rich and well made, cask works very well with Ledaig's distillate.
    A real treat.
