Ledaig 8 yo 2005/2014 (51.3%, The Whisky Mercenary) You know, since Diageo’s marvellous trick with their Lagavulin 8 yo, eight’s almost become the new twenty! Colour: white wine. Nose: it’s perhaps a little less ‘immediate’, and that may be because of the higher strength (yeah, only 3.2%, S.!) Other than that, styles, profiles, ideas, philosophies and goals in life are totally similar (S., there’s a lost episode of Inspektor Derrick on TV, you might want to go watch it.) With water: oh, we managed to reproduce the Malt Barn/Pure Spirit! A stroke of luck, perhaps. Mouth (neat): perfect. Lemon, peat, brine. I repeat, lemon, peat, brine. With water: same as the previous ones. Most probably not the same cask(s), but surely the same parcel. Finish: indeed. Comments: there's a question I got to ask you, isn’t Ledaig (slowly) becoming the new Ardbeg? SGP:357 – 89 points.
