Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Zuckersüßer, leicht erdiger Rauch. Etwas geräucherter Schinken.

Erinnert richtig an Süßkram. Kaugummi, Bonbon, Brausestäbchen. Weißer Glühwein, Vanille. Ne richtig schöne Fruchtnote liegt hinter dem Rauch, aber ich krieg´s nicht auseinander. Wird malziger. Erinnert mich an warmes, etwas abgestandenes, dunkles Weißbier.

Taste

Milder, rauchiger Antritt. Sofort verteilen sich geräucherte Süßigkeiten im Mund. Die Frucht kommt jetzt deutlicher durch. Orange, Birne, etwas Maracuja. Marzipan, leicht erdig. Das dunkle Weißbier kommt zum Schluss auch noch durch. Der Alkohol hält sich seht zurück.

Finish

Mittellang. Rauchig süß, malzig, würzige Eiche, etwas Bitterkeit. Aber ölig belegend.

Nase leicht rauchig. Aber nicht so stark wie erwartet. Eher gemütlich :-) Dann Vanille 

Taste

Rauch, Vanille. Rauch aber nicht störend.... Sehr sanft zum trinken trotz CS

Finish

Leider etwas zu kurz aber ein sehr guter Whisky. 

Comments

Sehr schöne Fassauswahl. Gefällt mir sehr gut....

Nose

Klassischer Ledaig Rauch steigt in die Nase. Dieser überdeckt jedoch nicht die wunderbaren Noten reifer Orangen, Erdbeeren, Chupa Chups und Fruchtbonbons. Mit etwas Zeit weicht die Fruchtigkeit dreckigeren Malznoten und Sauerteig. 

Taste

Kalte Asche trifft Malzbier und Brotteig. Daneben schmecke ich auch Marzipan, Mandeln und tropische Früchte. Der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden. Ein fast weicher Ledaig.

Finish

Leider etwas zu kurz für die tollen Eindrücke der Nase und des Geschmacks. Viel Vanille, Marzipan, etwas Salz, Eiche und dunkle Früchte verbleiben. 

Comments

Ein wirklich guter Whisky, der beweist, dass Ledaig auch mit etwas höherem Alter viele Facetten zu bieten hat. Gerade bei der aktuellen Flut an jungen Ledaigs eine gelungene Abwechslung.

This one is dirty! Peaty maltiness with lots of dirty off-notes like stable, manure and some fishy stuff. If you're into this than it's an absolute treat. Hate it or love it. Nonetheless it's well made, properly balanced and full bodied. Good stuff!

Peat. Quite farmy like a cow shed. Lemon, white chocolate, orange and a bit of washing-up liquid. Later quite some maltiness that reminds me of dough or even prawn crackers. 
Taste

Peat, orange, white chocolate, malt, herbs and ehhh... spring rolls.

Finish

Peat, dark chocolate and something perfume-like.

Neus: Daar gaan we weer! lichte peat. Dit keer is het net op het randje volgens mij. Dus verbrande autobanden, asbak en andere longziektes veroorzakers. Daaronder ruik ik bijna niets, behalve, heel gek, banaan. Met water: Gier.....

Smaak: Ja peat, beetje metalig. Deze zit hoog in de alcohol en zal denk ik opknappen van wat water. Met water wordt de smaak beter, maar het blijft een beetje bij de standaard vanille, peat, karamel en hout.

Body: Dat zit wel goed, deze is vrij romig

Finish: Naast asbak merk ik ook wel wat vanille en karamelfudge, duidelijk bourbonvatinvloeden.

Mooie uitgebalanceerde whisky, waarbij de geur, body en finish mooi op elkaar aansluiten. Karakter, veelzijdig.

Leer, licht turf. Licht rokerig ook, wat geroosterd vlees. En fruitig, citrus, limoen. En ook wat zoetigs, vanille, honingachtig.
Aangename geur en veelbelovend.

Taste

Llichte turf, wat salmiak, beetje scherp/peperig. Ook wat fruitig zurigs, citrus. En ook weer zoete tonen, honing. Een mooie balans tussen lichte turf en fruitig- en zoetigheid. Alcohol is redelijk aanwezig.

Finish

In de afdronk komen dezelfde smaken terug als in de body: Wat peperig, turf, beetje rook, zoetig en citrus. Ook wat drogig en hij gaat over naar licht bitter. Opnieuw mooi in balans.

Comments

Mooie uitgebalanceerde whisky, waarbij de geur, body en finish mooi op elkaar aansluiten. Karakter, veelzijdig. (Was sample bij Blind Tasting)
