Maritime et très moelleux sur le chocolat au lait fondu, le Toblerone, même ! Relevé une note de poivre blanc ! Superbe ! En bouche, salin et marqué par un sherry subtil, le tout avec beaucoup d'intensité. Texture mâcheuse. (Le Toblerone ?) Finale très épicée et salée, très vive, qui contraste avec la gourmandise du nez et de la bouche.

Enthousiasme 4/5

Note by Wilson & Morgan;

One of those rare Ledaigs which could be easily mistaken for a light Islay malt, as its style is similar to a medium peated Bruichladdich. Fresh, fragrant with mint and a good backbone of oily sweetness, very flowery and aromatic but also with quizzical organic aromas. The usual green vegetable notes and mineral character of this distillery are present, but restrained compared to other bottlings. Its complexity and long evolution in the glass will capture the attention of the seasoned taster: certainly not a “tamed” whisky, not a simplified affair designed to please the easy drinking crowd. Rather, a genuine old fashioned malt which dares to be different and slightly off the beaten path.

Nose

Riche, capiteux. Au premier abord, la tourbe est marquée par des notes de créosote et oscille entre le chocolat noir, les embruns et les hydrocarbures (essence, fuel).  Au second nez, elle se fait plus douce.

Taste

A la fois vive et onctueuse. Toujours dominante, la tourbe fait progressivement place aux fruits exotiques (ananas, mangue). Quelques piments, du poivre et du sel assurent ensuite un relais plein de dynamisme et de persuasion vers la finale.

Finish

Onctueuse, grasse. Place à la gourmandise notamment à une glace rhum-raisins ou bien à une tarte aux pommes et à la cannelle. Huileuse, elle évoque également une tapenade et sa liqueur fruitée et capiteuse nous emmène sur les pentes de Banyuls.

Comments
Tel qu'annoncé par LMDW, ce second malt de la distillerie Tobermory, Ledaig (prononcer « Lea-chaig ») est un whisky très confidentiel, recherché des connaisseurs. Cette version de 12 années élevées en fûts de sherry de second remplissage est une alternative intéressante pour la découverte des single malts d'Islay plus célèbres.
