  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A well-integrated single malt from the Isle of Mull, this Ledaig 2006 15 Years does the sweet and peat marriage very well.
    • Nose
      Notes of tar, earthy peat smoke, burnt caramel and luscious fruits all intertwine, with just a whiff of sulphur in the background. There’s plums, blackcurrants and raspberries, with finally some raw teak wood. Impressive.
    • Taste
      Oily mouthfeel with dry oak, seaweed and ashes, but also cherry syrup, dark chocolate and a whiff of gunpowder and pepper, accompanied by beef jerky and dried red fruits. And quite a bit of peat smoke, of course.
    • Finish
      Sweet, dry, briny and peaty. Very long.

    Nose: A thick melange of dried fruit in smokey syrup; Dates, plums, and prunes, with a lovely touch of rancio , old damp wood more smoke, some tobacco boxes, a bit musty. a real treat to sniff, with lovely complexity and layers of aromas on top of each other.

    Palate: Thick and sweet with smoke, a bit of rubber on top of black tea, then the fruit comes through in the form of cherries, some salty influence as well, as well as tar, soot, and earth. Dirty enough, and fruity at times, the ashes and fruit combine beautifully.

    Finish: Sweet marinated BBQ meats, a hint of salt and seaweed then going on on sweat peat and a hint of dried plum.
