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!

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.

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.

Nose

Säure und Salz kitzeln etwas in der Nase, modriger alter Bootssteg, Erde, etwas Desinfektionsmittel (ein Hauch Mentholfrische?) und ein großer Vanillepudding/weiße Schokolade

Taste

erst cremig-süß, Milchschokolade, Karamel, etwas überreife Banane, dann kommt bitter der Rauch, Asche, Pfeffer und Salz, Bitterschokolade, angebranntes Toastbrot

Finish

lang, Pfeffer, Kaffee, etwas Lakritz

Comments

Lecker Torfnasenwhisky, könnte gut von Islay kommen und spielt in der dortigen Standard-OA-Torf-Range 10-12 geschmacklich und preislich (~40€) locker mit und die 46,3% stehen ihm gut. Wenn einem also Laphi & co. mal langweilig werden, ruhig mal nach Mull schauen!

Lichte zoetheid mooi gecombineerd met rokerigerheid. Floraal en zacht. Wat citrus en zouttonen. Ietwat jodium ver weg op de achtergrond.

Taste

Vooral een pepertje wat naar voren komt, bovenop de relatief subtiele rokerigheid gecombineerd met de zoetheid. Florale tonen verdwijnen en verschijnt vooral citrus.

Finish

Rokerigheid komt nu echt door. Lang en drogend, met vooral ook die peperigheid die doorkomt. Ook lichte houttonen en wat kruidnagel.

Comments

Niets mis mee. Enigzins wat simpel en zacht. Goed gebalanceerd.
