Nose

Mein erster Eindruck: Der ist noch sehr jung, ohne dass ich ausser dem Jahrgang 2004 etwas anderes auf der Etikette des Samples gesehen hätte. Minze, Kaugummi, Salz, Torf in Richtung Mullbinde.

Taste

leicht schwebend, bringt mir hier nicht gerade viel.

Finish

Und dann kommt die ganze Wucht von Salz, exotischen Hölzern, unterlegt von phenolischener Rauchigkeit.Aber nicht gerade von extremer Nachhaltigkeit.

Comments

Hoppla, der bekommt ja grandiose Benotungen, für mich etwas ungerechtfertigter weise. Gut, der Preis (momentan mit € 33.80 vermerkt) stimmt einem wieder etwas gnädiger, aber viel mehr wert ist diese Flasche m.E. auch nicht.

Drank this at a Whiskybase Tasting in Hotel Zee en Duin in Katwijk ZH and purchased 12 bottles right away. Sad to say only 5 are left now.

Tasted during the whiskybase/shop nosing and tasting on last monday-evening(30/01/12). A real stunner! The nose is creamy, light medicinal, very lightly peated and dilicious floury!The taste is even better and is rather creamy, floury(read pretty floury!) as well as perfectly balanced with fruits!!The finish is medium long(in my opinion), but very nice. An intriguing dram!!


Today, 23-02-2013 tasted again - neat - and just great, indeed a great stunner!!!

Color
Gin clear
Nose

smoked & air dried ham/prosciutto (schwarzwaelder schinken) and lots of it, a slight green/plant-y/peeled-twig-wood note underneath all that smoke, also some mineral/stone-y notes and oak-y vanilla (85)

Taste

peat and an oily sweetness, nice attack although it doesn't feel like +60%. camphor, some tea notes (black & lapsang ), honey, (88)

Finish

nicely fading out with a nice warmth, more smoke, here the mineral notes come through as well with some granite/stones, also some hay, shortbread, also a tiny fruity note at the back (raspberry jelly maybe ?) (86)

Comments

Already a great peated whisky, and if price comes into the equation, an absolute winner!

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Nose

Coastal and peaty with a lot of zesty freshness. Very light hints of rubber fishing boots. Very clean and focused.

Taste

Punchy yet perfectly quaffable at full strength. Very clean again. Young peat (more than on the nose), lots of lemon and plenty of pepper. Nice evolution towards slightly sweeter lemon notes. Huge focus which also means limited complexity.

Finish

Peaty, clean and very long.

Nose

Peaty and coastal.  Soft seaweed, then citrus peels.  Sugar cookies. New tires.  Salt water tackle box. 

Taste

Peaty, with strong burning alcohol.  Zesty lemon, then sweet biscuit dough.  White pepper.  Medicinal (iodine mainly).  Sea water. Dried lemons.

Finish

Medium length.  Spicy hot, but sweet.  Peat fades to more citrus. Hints of what I think asphalt would taste like. 

Comments

Excellent young Ledaig.  Not the most complex whisky on the block, but very enjoyable.  Thanks for the free sample WB Shop!

Nose

On the nose, which is very clean, I get quite some mineral elements. Wet stones on a rocky beach, sweet peat, zesty with grapefruit skins and some lemon. Cod oil and rubber garden hose, upholstered with some sweet honey in the background. The whole is very soft.

Taste

Despite the high ABV, it is perfectly quaffable without the addition of water. Yes, you get a fierce kick in the teeth at first, of course, but once you get past the burning sensation, you will get sweet peat again, sea salt and lemon.

Finish

The finish is more of the same and last quite long.

Comments

This one can be had in the Whiskybase shop for only 35 EUR?! Now that is a very friendly price!
