  1. SAND scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    (Tasted blind)
    APPEARANCE: Medium golden colour.
    NOSE: Almonds, almond essence, moderate dry peat smoke. Takes water very well, becomes more fruity', on yellow and orchard fruits. (88-89p)
    TASTE: The arrival is sweet, rich and intense on the mid palate, with wood. Takes water very well, opens up and improves, less woody, a bit more oily.
    FINISH: Black pepper, wood, peat smoke. A (nice) bitter fruit bite as well. Suddenly a lot of peat smoke at the very end. (90-91p)
    OVERALL: Total score 89 points.

    Next to a 1992 CA bottling, this one is dirtier a tad bit than the 1992, looking for some smoke or peat, there is almost none, alcohol bites the nose a bit.
    All the bourbon and fruit niceness is there, spices and some herbs.
    I am still learning to appreciate these 20+ whiskies...

    Ledaig 1993-2015, 22 years, 54.3% alc. Cadenhead's Ledaig 1993-2015, 22 years, 54.3% alc.
    Bottler: Cadenhead's
    Expansion: Bourbon Hogshead
    Region: Isle of Mull, Scotland

    From the Tobermory distillery

    Nose: Special. Slightly smoky and with a subtle herbal note. Very much forest honey and a little vanilla, then the single malt becomes much more fruity, juicy and ripe peaches are complemented by apricots and nectarines. Add a hint of mineral aromas, as if the cliffs were a mile away and the sea rages there.

    Palate: Tropical fruits, again a strong peach note. A very slight hint of dry wood smoke mixes with it. Followed again creamy honey, some bitter caramel, walnuts and malt.

    Finish: medium and dry, with oak, caramel and coconut. In addition a slightly mineral, almost saline impact.

    Conclusion: Ledaig? The very light smoke is more likely to close to a tobermory. Either way, a really complex whisky. Really good!

    86/100 points (tasted 2015)
    Thanks to Cadenhead's Berlin for the rehearsal!
