- Yet another great dram in my search for the holy Ledaig grail.
Well, there is no hiding here: this is a classic Ledaig - of course. But in contrast to other expressions I tasted, this one has a modest nose. Yes the earthy and dirty smell is there; same applies to burned meat and tobacco. But as mentioned, more subtle than usual.
Full force at 61+% abv. A sh*tload of pepper; pretty ashy. This requires water.
Long and spicy finish. Even slightly wry and sour. Dry in the far end.
- International Whisky Day 2018. Cheers buddies!
Earthy, coffee, lemon, peaty, a salty cheese rind, tobacco and rubber.
Wow, very full with pepper, fishy/coastal notes, liquorice, atjar tjampoer and some medicinal notes.
Medium drying with liquorice, pepper and citrus.
Sharp cracked peat. Sharp iodine, and citrus-grassy peat, I never felt such a combination. But when I pass over that sharpened sharpness, I feel a barrel behind the port, and lightly even a ton of tons. Sharpness is quite disturbing, but it is not bad overall. (83)
Pleasantly sweet peat, the taste is still known to be alcohol, but over 60% of the cheeses have not guessed, about 55%. (85)
