Expert Senior aphex Note
28 Oct 2017 7:24 pm
aphex gave this whisky 90 points

Nose : Typical peaty sherry nose with the Ledaig touch. Farmy and sulphury at first with smoked meat and barbecue sauce. Leathery, slightly briny. Aeration brings chocolate, tobacco, prunes.

Mouth : Punchy and rich. Attack on dried fruits (raisins, figs), spices and tobacco. Smoky, dirty, meaty, sulphury again.

Finish : Long, smoky, spicy, sulphury.


I know lots of people who found it too sulphury. I don't mind and really like it... but with moderation. So one less point than previously.

I didn't pay for this, the wife did, but I know it wasn't cheap, what ever it was it was worth it, she comes up trumps again.

Eilean a' Cheo
Expert Senior Eilean a' Cheo Note
25 Mar 2017 12:18 pm
Eilean a' Cheo gave this whisky 92 points

A bit dirty sherry influence but manages to stay balanced...

only some slightly rubbery sulphury sherry notes on the nose which after a good 15minutes of breathing start to diminish..then you get leathery notes,oranges,smoked apricot compote. nice peat and briny ledaig notes in the background
the palate is very complicated and nicely heavy and smoky with peaches, orange glazed smoked meat, a lot of sea salt, earthy smoke, even touches of  weed,chocolate,dried mango...
92 after a good breathing for the nose to clean a bit
around 89 for the nose but a fantastic 93 palate..

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

The first thing that came to me when I put my nose to the glass was the inside of an old radio, there is also old leather, old wood and some slow cooked meat. There is a strong sulphur smell but it is no way unpleasant . There is caramel chocolate, a little whiff of tripe and some pipe tobacco. 

Taste

This has very strong flavours, full bodied it's nice and chewy and earthy , the sherry mixes well with the peat,  very well balanced and is very drinkable straight as it is,  it's almost like a mud stout. 

Finish

A very long finish with chocolate, Cuban cigar and some wood to chew on, the sherry takes a bow on the death. 

Comments

This was fantastic, every sip was an absolute delight. 

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?
