    Ledaig 2005-2012, 63.5% alc.
    Bottler: Big Market, Berlin

    Nose: Fruity and sweet, but difficult where the fruit is exactly to locate. Despite the high alcohol content is not alcoholic or sprittig. The fruit develops a great smoke, first it starts light and tender, then swells to the right stinker. With a profusion of cowshed and dung, behind it slightly phenolic and medical. If you heat up the glass by hand, you will get some barbeque notes, and the superficial fruitiness will fit in with it.

    Palate: Strong with many fleshy smoky notes, powerful onset. Again difficult to arrange exactly. Bacon of pork and ham. These glowing wood tones and a decent portion of seasoning, including cayenne pepper.

    Finish: Very long and warming, driven by the alcohol content. Even in the stomach warms the malt, plus the strong smoke and a slight pungency.

    Conclusion: In contrast, no toothbrush has a chance. Strong and complex Ledaig. Nothing for weak nerves!
