    Tasted alongside the 2009 van Wees cask 700362. This one is more lemony, ashy and dry. It's also less sweet. 89
    • Nose
      Gentle and pristine. Lemon, apple, ashes, smoke, oysters.
    • Taste
      Lemon and ashes. A bit sweeter now. Not extremely complex but very good. 
    • Finish
      A bit drying like fino or manzanilla with ashes and salty lemon. Very pleasant!

    Firstborn

    Beacon Spirits is a new Belgian player on the market of independent bottlers, founded by Patrick Proth. The labels launched with a couple of nice releases such as a Ledaig 2007, Caol Ila 2007, Speyside Finest 1975 (!) and Invergordon 1973 (a joint bottling with Liquid Art, another fairly new Belgian bottler, but more about them later). Then there is also a Cherry Spirit 2003, a German spirit from cherries that matured for 9 years. Interesting! But let us start with the Ledaig 2007, there firstborn. For me it is the 25th encounter with this peated Tobermory.

    A sweet and mildly smoky nose on apples, melon, lemon and honey. Hint of stable. A touch plasticine, even. A bit of smoked bacon. Oysters and olive oil. Ah, Ledaig the way I like it.

    Lovely arrival, nicely oily and a touch piquant. Ashes, tar, pepper, citrus fruit of all kinds (grapefruit in the lead), mackerel with a salty edge. But it also remains very sweet as if from candy sugar. Really good! And it absolutely needs no water at all.

    The finish is long, warm and smoke with more citrus than anticipated.

    Dangerously quaffable Ledaig and one of the best I have tried so far. Available from their website at 65 EUR. Thx, Bert!

    Review on Whiskyfun:

    Tobermory 2007/2015 (52.3%, Beacon Spirits, 169 bottles) Five stars This is actually Ledaig. Please fasten your seat belt, recent vintages of Ledaig have been consistently and constantly astounding in my book. The more recent, the better! Colour: pale white wine. Nose: I’ve promised that I would stop claiming that younger Ledaigs are the new <please insert name of famous Kildalton distillery here>. So I won’t tell you what I think. What is sure is that it’s appropriately tarry/sooty, with a garden bonfire in the background and a large plate of oysters, some smoked. Ever tried smoked oysters? Iodine, of course. With water: hessian and almond oil, bandages and paint thinner. Mouth (neat): dazzlingly fresh, smoky, salty, lemony, crystalline, and tarry. Seawater blended with limejuice and a drop of engine oil. Make that three drops. With water: turpentine, plasticine, lemon juice, brine, just like in <please insert name of famous Kildalton distillery here>. Finish: ashy almonds plus seawater, anchovies in salt, tar. Comments: hope they won’t send a vial into space! SGP:467 - 90 points.
