Vif et salin, fumée plutôt délicate. Raisins, Agrumes. En bouche, on retrouve ces sensations, avec un alcool bien intégré. Finale réchauffante. Avec de l'eau, on a d'autres fruits frais au nez, les agrumes se font plus sucrés (mandarine ?), et on a aussi un côté minéral qui se révèle. En bouche, très joli avec du malt et des fruits. Finale sucrée salée avec la fumée en fil rouge.

Enthousiasme 4/5

Перше моє знайомство з Ledaig ї зразу надзвичайний позитив. Димно-копчено-солодкий. Гарний баланс між ароматом і смаком.
велика палітра смаку,починаючи з димних нот,спецій,смачна копченість,морські нюанси,нотки воску і все це накладається на фруктову солодкість з хересними нотами.Довгий,довгий післясмак!
Гарна робота! 89points.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Peaty, salt, young with some spirit notes, smoke and pepper. Citrus, smoke and bread - crust of baked Casino white bread. Although the spirity notes very enjoyable. 

Taste

Smoke, peat, pepper, some menthol and dark chocolate with some cherries.

Finish

Medium drying with spices - pepper, smoke and citrus.

Comments

Ok Ledaig on a nice strength. Enjoyed it during a nice summer day in the garden. The sherry cask surprised me. Maybe only the cherries in combination with the dark chocolate for me in the taste.

Dit lijkt mij geen sherry vat, moet haast wel bourbon zijn. Voor het geld is het een aardige whisky trouwens en zeker wanneer je van het profiel van Ledaig houdt.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Crème sure, mirabelle, kirsch, orangeade, bois vert, tilleul, il devient de plus en plus végétal, sur une trame légèrement saline. La fumée jette comme un sfumato sur l'ensemble: omniprésente et lointaine à la fois. Un nez complexe, un peu rustique et sauvage, frais et changeant, farouche et passionnant. Il doit en dérouter plus d'un celui-là! On peut y rester longtemps, y revenir, le laisser se reposer, chercher à le prendre de court, il est présent, le même et un autre. Aussi étonnant que cela puisse paraître, il me rappelle certains Littlemill...

Taste

Grasse, fruitée (toujours la mirabelle, un soupcon de fraise, de l'orange de Séville), puis épicée, avec de la muscade, de la cannelle, du gingembre râpé, de la cardamome, chaque épice étant très nettement définie et précise. Le sfumato, toujours. Franchement, cette bouche est top!

Finish

Retour sur des arômes lactiques (toujours la crème sure, acidulée et terrienne) accompagnés de volutes de fumée florale (bois de rose, coquelicot) sur un fond gourmand et plus classique de sherry.

Comments

La bouteille est ouverte depuis quelques temps et il se révèle grandiose. Atypique.

peated, phenolisch, Limone, Kaffee, nasses Hundefell, eher junges Angesicht. Kein besonders erwähnenswerter Abgang.
