  1. 67conrad67 scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    Smell: medium, cold ashy bouquet, sweet cherry in the base, dirty basic tone, greasy, graphite, old leather according to the rubber note
    Taste: again ashy cold smoke, behind it the same cherry note as in the nose, medium. to lg. Reverberation, German Bitter almond note, alcohol present, which is still very well integrated
    Color: copper gold, medium WR., Of course
    Conclusion: Typical Ledaig, in which the port wine sweetness conceals the rubber notes well - quite a character actor, nevertheless the tariff is sporty for what is offered ...

    Can't get to barrel 668, which I gave 90 punkre. Although this whisky was stored here two years longer than its predecessor, it has a much too strong alcohol note for a 13-year-old. The flavors are also hidden too clearly behind the alcohol.

    I expected a lot more.

    If you have the choice, you should buy the last bottles of the predecessor.
