    • Nose
      Earthy and farmy peat. Toffee, hay, orange, gingerbread, cherry, raspberry and cow pat. With water plum and a little peach.
    • Taste
      Briny peat, orange, toffee, raspberry, dark chocolate, cherry, beer and spice. With water apricot and a little raisin.
    • Finish
      Peat, dark chocolate, orange, gingerbread, toffee and raspberry.

  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A true beast, wild and untamed. 
    • Nose
      Cured ham (Schwarzwälder Schinken), cow stable, wet peat, seaweed and more of that, but also some fruity elements (pineapple and apple pie) and a tad waxy (furniture polish). 
    • Taste
      Full-bodied to say the least, in which the peaty elements dominate. There's also pepper and fruits (some lemon kicks in).
    • Finish
      Long and lingering, raw and salty.

  8. aby scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    finally, a well drinkable Ledaig  (okay, you can`t compare these to the 1972 vintages).

    overall: nice ashes, campfire. A typical winter whisky   85p.
