    Two Ledaig’s today - aka [peated Tobermory]. We’ll start here and finish with a much older one WB
    N: Cask strength for sure. This is a big puncher though rounded - the peat and grain are equally succinct. Its oily for sure and a little eggy. Becomes really farmy with water, conjuring family outings to the country where us kids would call out “pphhhuwee’ as we quickly wound up the car windows whilst hastily passing a potent field of manure. Theres some over ripe fruits in the mix too, making it rather squelchy. Vanillas are present, theres plenty of dessert sweetness [from the cask], its bready also and that egg - the kind of egginess you detect from a freshly baked cake straight out of the oven. Not a complicated dram but one that turns heads, or noses.
    T: Its [just] drinkable neat but ideally it needs bringing down a few pegs. Grainy. oily fruits and the ‘singing’ grain in fine fettle. More water=more sweetness, the vanilla-sugars enjoying the sun. Sweet>soured cream into the finish and some chocolate-Caramac which sustains rather pleasingly.
    F: …again, barley-peat=smoke, luscious stuff with a soft, sweet chew to the last.
    C: Superb distillate at the very least. Needs plenty of water but a little too much and it becomes stupidly simplistic. Its a fab drinker, but i cant give it more than a B-/85 with its simple sugariness and the egg - but then there are so many good bits.

    Scores a B- [85]
