Très tourbé pour un Ledaig - c’est-à-dire modérément. Malté. Gourmand avec des fruits rouges (groseilles, cerises…) En bouche, quelle souplesse, quelle rondeur ! L'alcool n'est pas agressif du tout. Fin de bouche et finale sur la fumée et le poivre. Avec un peu d'eau, il s'ouvre et devient encore plus intense au nez ! Le malt se déploie et une note de miel vient l'agrémenter. En bouche, gourmand et désormais très épicé. La fumée n'est pas l'attrait principal de ce whisky, elle vient compléter le panorama comme la cerise sur le gâteau. En parlant de cerises, les revoilà dans la finale. Arrière goût de fumée.

Enthousiasme 4/5

I was lucky to buy it approximately one year ago at the original release price of 75€ (hence the high rating for price). Should have bought more bottles back then! This very dirty sherry profile is always a welcome reunion every time I (re)taste it! Despite its very high ABV it doesn't need any water for me but I can imagine that some other drinkers might want to dillute this powerhouse of a Whisky a tiny bit ;-)

Nose

Wet slate. Mineral peat. Porridge. Sulphur. Rubber. Nutty wood. Sticky toffee. Fresh paper. Raspberry sherbert. Pink lemonade.

Taste

Salty. Sulphury. Mineral peat. Scorched earth. Rubber. Orange candies. Wax.

Finish

Long. Dry sherried wood. Sticky peaches and cherries. Rubber. Mineral peat. Charred painted wood.

Comments

Phenomenal whisky! This Ledaig is still very feisty. The sherry adds a huge dimension here. For a 10 year old peated whisky it’s wonderfully complex and bold.

Nose

Sweet smoke, tobacco leaves, salt, notes of barbecue, then then sherry cask shines with toffee, caramel and dried prunes. No sulphur, no off notes, just a nice, "clean" peated sherried whisky.

Taste

Full body and nicely integrated alcohol, sweet notes of dried fruits, prunes, raisins, cherries, then some toffee, milk chocolate and this medicinal smoke and ash lingering on the tongue.

Finish

Medium long on the sweetness of sherry with some spicy pepper and not overly intense smoke.

Comments

10 years old, you say? These new Ledaigs are said to show consistently high quality and great value for money, this one certainly has these features.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

süßer und doch trockener Torfrauch, eine maritime Brise, würzig und holzig, etwas stechend, trockenes Leder wie von einem rissigen Ledersessel (leider verfliegt diese Note), Asche, alter Tabak, auch ein wenig Kuhstall ist mit dabei; mit etwas Wasser kuht es etwas deutlicher, warmes Rindsleder macht sich bemerkbar

Taste

eine bittere Holznote, würzige und fast schon unangenehme Schärfe, torfig, salzige Süße, der Sherry ist schwächer im Vergleich zu den Schwesterfässern; Zugabe von Wasser drängt die bittere Eiche etwas zurück, macht diesen Ledaig aber leider auch eher dünner und nimmt ihm nicht die Schärfe

Finish

lang, bitter und rauchig, Holz und Schinken; leicht verdünnt mit Wasser währt der Abgang länger und er verteilt sich stärker, die Holznote schwächt sich ab

Comments

Nicht ganz so überzeugend wie manche der Nachbarfässer, aber zweifellos ein toller Tropfen. Ein paar wenige Tropfen Wasser kann man zugeben, damit sich manche Aromen noch öffnen, jedoch ist dies eine Gratwanderung, da der Whisky dabei sehr schnell zu dünn schmeckt.
