Interesting farmy nose, not quite as intense as Kilchoman. Cow stable, straw and hay. A little cold smoke (just faint), some ham, pears and unripe pineapples. I also find a whiff of salty Seabreeze by the ocean (could this be on the Island of Mull?). Taste: WOW!!! Ever had a farm in your mouth? Incredible. Me like… Quite unique profile. Very smooth but a little thin. Some wet wood, cold smoke and bonfire ashes. Any fruits you ask? Well…Gooseberries! Water tones down the nose a lot, some citrus notes come out though. On the palate we get more smoke. A coal pile and more cold ashes. Not many animals left but interestingly the texture gets chewy! Definitely worth exploring this with water. Ends medium long and a little dry, nice lingering aftertaste of musty warehouse. Well done Gordon. Well done McPhail. A Whisky that will give you a new experience every time…

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Nicely peated with hints of rubber. Fresh fruit (green apple, pear) and beeswax. 

Taste

Very nice! Surprisingly sweet (marzipan) and nicely balanced with a tobacco peatiness. It also has something citrussy (lime). 

Finish

Quite long and lingering in which the tastes of the palate continue. At the end there's a faint hint of menthol. 

Comments

Tasted 19/12/2015 in a tasting with a Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice line-up.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Een zoete, licht zure en frisse whisky met tonen van zacht rook, groene appel, aalbessen, ananas, gedroogde abrikoos, een hint naar rubber, mineralen, aardse tonen, banaan, hint naar eiken, boter, honing, bijenwas, wat peper, olijf, granen en brioche

Taste

Een rijke, frisse en zoete whisky met tonen van marsepein, citroenschil, pruim, wijn azijn, sinaasappel, grapefruit, witte peper, boter, hint naar tabac as, rook, drop, een hint naar maggiplant, melk chocolade, honing, pekel en groene olijven.

Finish

Een vrij lange en licht drogende afdronk met tonen van honing, verse kruiden, citrus, zachte rook, zilt en een hint naar wijn azijn.

Comments
Dit is niet echt mijn stijl van whisky maar het is wel een van de betere Ledaig expressies die ik tot nu toe gedronken heb. Het typische karakter van de Tobermory komt hier krachtiger in door en de rook is wat verder naar de achtergrond gezakt.
