    I wish I had bought several bottles of this excellent whisky..however I feel lucky enough to have tasted it ...with such an excellent base as the ledaig spirit and with flawless sherry casks the whisky industry can still do wonders...

    Just right for a cozy winter evening in front of the fireplace. Very beautiful. The smoke of Ledaig is perfectly integrated in the sherry. The departure lasts for an infinitely long time. Gladly more of it :)

    A - for me - outstanding malt. Outstanding, because here for this young age and the acceptable price (just under 79 €) an extremely varied and impressive malt was created, which inspires me again and again. This is not "just" smoke, or "just" sherry, but the near-perfect symbiosis of these so different directions. If you have the opportunity, you should definitely try it.
    • Nose
      It hits me straight sweet, almost syrupy Rauch.Zwischen cocktail cherries, the expected sherry aroma and many, many dried fruit, but still compete old leather and some sulfur for supremacy. In addition there are raisins, which are wonderfully embedded in the smoke. With some time in the glass, the smoke is a bit milder, the dried fruit and the sherry come out more clearly.
      Wow, this malt is always a pleasure in the nose. A conglomerate of different and intense aromas, without even the slightest false note.
    • Taste
      Here the alcohol has hidden, which one had almost forgotten in view of the mild Nosings. The malt lays on the tongue, which has washed itself. The 60,6% show their power and for a short time the association of a horse comes to mind, which has just caught me with a hoof kick. You have to like that - but I like it.
      After the tongue has gotten used to the malt and the onset of saliva has naturally diluted the whisky, the flavors come to light.
      Sherry, paired with a full load of dates and dried fruit, is the first thing that defines the picture. After a short time the malt seems to completely change. Now the peat sees the taste buds, it is smoky, peppery and somewhat phenolic. Faced with these tough enemies, the fruits and sherry disappear almost completely. A light impression of dark chocolate remains before the malt runs down the throat.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, damn long. After a short while, the sweet fruits could show briefly, the smoke remains in the mouth. Tobacco and dry earth mix with saliva, but the description of the "ashtray" is not correct here. This is much more pleasant, balanced and somewhere too "sweet".

    A great dirty stinker, an absolute grenade for just 10 years, must have been a highly active sherry keg, class!
    • Nose
      Powerful smell of cow stables, sweet and sour smoke, smokehouse with ham, old leather couch, distinct sherry flavors, wood, some menthol, dark fruits like blackcurrants or blackberries, dates, maritime salt notes, salted meats
    • Taste
      Strong smokiness, bitter notes of wood, saltiness and acidity, malty sweetness, with water appears more fruitiness, cola-effervescent powder
    • Finish
      Long and intense, dry, bitter

    Deep sherry, concentrated flavours of dark fruits, chocolate and the typical dirty smoke, very good.

  10. OJK scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Burned molasses, tar, rich forest fruit jams, pinecones, sweet herbal syrup, smoke and charcoal, caramelised nuts, mocha and candied ginger. Deep and rich flavours that are perfectly integrated without being overwhelming, and proceed with an assured elegance even at only 10 years old and with that super high ABV. Incredibly impressive
