    Very nice one!

      Long but gentle burn. Salmiak.

    I won !! 1! again a Ledaig from the sherry barrel. Cool again. I like it. Ledaig, Sherry and 60% + ... that just fits.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Interestingly, sometimes the sherry is stronger, sometimes weaker, too much peat for me.
    • Nose
      Tobacco, peat, vanilla, beautiful sherry fruit notes, roasted hazelnuts, plums, tar, raisins
    • Taste
      Peat is very sweet with strong oiliness, sherry fruits in the background, berries buried in soil, fireplace ash, salt, citrus notes also there
    • Finish
      Medium to long, dry-earthy, warmth and sweetness remain, some sherry in the background

    Boom! Cooked fruits, sulfur! Intense ! It's a Uberach? Smoke and barley join them. Cold ashes, now. And pepper. On the palate: Monin ash syrup! It's coming out! And this peppery malt. What intensity!

    Enthusiasm 4/5
