  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Ledaig
    22 yo 1972/1995 (51.3%, Cadenhead)

    Colour: gold. Nose: certainly more
    discrete at first nosing but certainly
    subtler. Superb notes of old beeswax,
    paraffin, old book, old turpentine,
    linseed oil, getting then quite
    mineral on whiffs of fireplace and
    wet stones. Gets then seriously
    peaty and beautifully vegetal (smoked
    tea, seaweed, apple skin, walnut
    burs). Quite some camphor and eucalyptus
    (Vicks), clean horse stable. Something
    sweet in the background (strawberries?).
    Maybe it doesn’t sound so
    but it’s really delicate.
    I like it a lot. Mouth: oh yes,
    it’s so much more like it
    when compared with the finished
    one. Powerful, assertive, extremely
    peaty just like an Ardbeg or a Brora
    from the same year, it almost tastes
    young. Quite some liquorice and
    pepper, apple skin and walnuts,
    crystallized lemons, strong tea,
    salt… Even chilli or wasabi.
    Really strong, a genuine peat monster
    on the palate (and the nose was
    so delicate!) The finish is long
    like a day without bread as we say
    here, peaty, waxy and liquoricy…
    Gee, what a monster indeed. More
    complexity on the palate would have
    propelled it even above my 92
    points.
