  5. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    For 13 years the barrel has practically eaten the base, the smoky smoked tones only with time, on the flight, make their way from under sherry abundance recalling that this is not just one of the numerous sherry monsters, there is very little rubber. Otherwise, everything is fine - a beautiful balance, deep and rich flavor, excellent work with the fortress - no discomfort from more than 60% is not felt, interesting, piteous.
    • Nose
      Raw, cool, raw rotten stump, earth, Puer tea, mushrooms, acetone, oak, raisins, dried fruits, dried apricots, prunes, light smoky notes, pine branches, resin, Lapsang suhong, carpentry - varnish, putty, thinner, burnt paper , an old campfire.
    • Taste
      Oak, dried fruits, peppery wave, creamy notes, boiled condensed milk, toffee, in the background coal and burnt branches, smoke, ash.
    • Finish
      Butter, lemon, toffee, boiled condensed milk and again from the background the Ledaig base is pierced - smoke, coal.

    Farmhouse as it's best;
    • Nose
      Klassischer Ledaig: schwer, dreckig und "farmy", unverkennbar aber nicht extrem;
    • Taste
      Total würzig und extrem gehaltvoll und kräftig; Kuhstall deluxe! Salz! Mit Wasser kommen mehr Fruchtaromen hervor;
    • Finish
      Kräftig und wärmend, lang;

    • Nose
      Wow, huge earthy scents. Peat, earth, forest. In addition, of course smoke and if you slide well, there is menthol in the background.
    • Taste
      Again the earthy tones. The menthol is barely to be tasted, but he is there. Despite the solid ABV it is good to drink without water, soft, friendly, but a strong character. Nice and creamy.
    • Finish
      Long finish, that bite sand stays in your mouth.
