Deep copper
Nose

Peat, cranberry and light spices. A bit farmy as well, but not as huge as some other Ledaigs.

Taste

More spicy now. Peat, cranberry and toffee.

Peat, cranberry and toffee.

Nose: Very Sherried nose, some peat

Taste: Wow, lovely

Marmalade Laphroaig 


Surprisingly good for a 10 non Islay. But wouldn't pay 150.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Sweet peat, earth, camphor and lemon peel, sherry well hidden behind them.

Taste

Powerful. Peat, pepper, chili chocolate, snake cucumber. Salami and ash.

Finish

Long, hot, ashy.

Comments

Good stuff, but it could be more grotesque. The first fill sherry doesn't really prevail.

Nose

Weiches Aroma, gleich steigt mir der liebliche Rauch in die Nase. Vom Sherry rieche ich nichts, eher die Eiche, würde sogar auf ein Bourbonfass tippen.

Taste

Sehr kräftig, der Rauch dominiert, würzig. Der Rauch entwickelt sich nicht schön, nicht mein Geschmack.

Auch ein Tropfen Wasser hilft da nichts. Schmeckt wie ein Aschenbecher...

Finish

Lang, aber mich stört das Aroma.

Comments

Geschmacksache. Manche mögen ihn, ich nicht.

What a powerhouse of a whisky, needs some water, around 50% then it is a balanced peated monster, almost Southern Islay style.
