If you are a peat head and want to widen your horizon beyond Islay, this Single Malt is waiting to be discovered! At first glance, Ledaig 10 (peated Tobermory) is very reminiscent of Islay malts - but it's less sweet and distinctly different. A complex bouquet of smoked ham, sea salt, citrus fruits and both floral and savory notes hides behind intense, mineral peatiness. The arrival is strong, fresh and quite dry, followed by burned licorice, aniseed and loads of white pepper. Distant maritime notes and hints of mint crown the substantial finish. A first-class malt!

Nose

Rubbery (the rubber bands the mailman uses - Dutch: postelastiek), peaty, oily (fish oil), pinch of salt. Fresh; pretty straightforward. 

Taste

Quite peaty, a bit oily, citrusy; lemon marmalade. 

Finish

Lemon and apricot marmalade continuing with peatiness, sweeter than on the palate. At the roof of the mouth: smoke of an open fire. 

Comments

Pretty straightforward mildly peated dram, nothing fancy but an OK dram.Tasted in a tasting with line-up of WB ID's 52097, 62558, 69539, 18211, 66055, in that order.

Pale gold
Nose

Sealine smokiness, seashells, black tea, brine, some faint sourness and sweetness and a hint of mint.

Taste

Minerallic and dry peat, liquorice, vanilla, sweet and sour and some saltiness.

Finish

Pretty long, lingering peat, brine and a little lapsang souchong.

Comments

A nice alternative to Islay peatiness. Slightly reminiscent of Caol Ila and Laphroaig, but less medicinal.

Pale straw
Nose
Резина - противогаз, медицинские резиновые пробки, запахи перевязочной, лёгкие дымные ноты - сухие остывшие угли, сухой торф, пыльные доски, еле уловимые нотки канифоли и сухофруктов. Не спиртуозен.


Taste

Резина, древесная горечь, жжёный сахар, снова резина, белый перец, кисло-сладкая пастила из кураги - вкус насыщенный и глубокий, начинается как продолжение аромата, но не ограничивается его рамками и раскрывается вширь и вглубь.

Finish

Перечное, горько-сладкое дубовое, мощное, компотно-сухофруктовые нотки на заднем плане. Длительное.

Comments

Идеально сбалансированный резиновый молт, постепенно раскрывающий свои достоинства в процессе дегустации - от подавляюще резинового аромата через тёплый мощный древесно-резиновый вкус к кисло-сладкому послевкусию. Питкий, вкусный, возможно недостаточно сложный, но с ярким запоминающимся характером, для десятки - отлично

Nose

Dieser Malt hat eine wunderbare Phenol-Nase; und einerseits Schwefel, andererseits aber auch Lagerfeuer und wird nie unangenehm. Dann folgen etwas Vanille und helle Trauben, ganz klassisch, und wie es sich für einen Insel-Whisky gehört, ist auch eine schöne Prise Meersalz im Spiel.

Taste

Dieser Ledaig kommt mit schöner Traubensüße, überzogen von etwas Vanille, in den Mundraum. Eingehüllt wird das Ganze von angenehmem Lagerfeuerrauch, der bald würziger, torfiger, medizinischer wird. Der Alkohol ist nie zu spüren, die hellen Früchte spielen mit den Raucharomen ein sehr unterhaltsames Match.

Finish

Der Abgang ist kurz bis mittellang, die fruchtig-rauchige Gaumen-Charakteristik setzt sich fort.

Comments

Der Malt aus Mull ist ein ganz toller Raucher, der zeigt, dass auch abseits von Islay hervorragende Insel-Malts entstehen. Vielschichtiger Rauch, ehrlich-transparente 10 Jahre, schöne Stärke mit 46,3%, angenehme Fruchtigkeit am Gaumen, bezahlbar. Gelungen.

Au nez,de la tourbe à plein nez,du citron,et de l'herbe séchée!

En bouche,débauche de tourbe fumée,ou de fumée tourbée avec des épices poivrées prononcées et des fruits jaunes(citron,vanille)

En finale,senteurs fortes de tourbe et de citron un peu confit

Un bon dram ,vu le prix,simple aussi sur des flaveurs typiques que l'on peut retrouver de façon plus subtile sur des finitions plus âgées.
