    Colour:
    gold
    Nose:
    Juicy, spicy and farmy! A lot of delicious grain, a little dusty and running in harmony with yellow-green fruit aromas. In addition, soft peat and dilapidated coastal wood. An appealing combination, even if it is more a "simple" structured nose.
    Taste:
    Soft-spicy, fruity and also with a lot of grain in the taste. The yellow-green fruits are also present - green apple meets golden ear! The seasoning is harmonious with a little tobacco, wet earth and slightly peaty throughout - extremely pleasant and great!
    Finish:
    Medium length - the battle between fruit and grain remains. Slightly tart, sometimes even flowery and peaty and underlaid with earthy notes - like a day in the barley field on I…., No we are on the Isle of Mull.

    Good OBE at work here. Low ABV but lively whisky. Elegant and excellent nose and very drinkable palate.
    Very good old young Ledaig.

      Old dusty books, metallic notes, gentle peat smoke, pine resin, mentholated notes, seabreeze and a few ashes.
    • Taste

      Earthy peat, tobacco, brine, pepper, candied lemons. Almost juicy.
    • Finish

      Medium. Smoke, pepper and brine.

    Nose of ash peat.
    The attack is very slightly sweet. The palate offers powerful peat and ash aromas, supported by iodine and floral notes. Very high drinkability.
    Very long finish, always on the ashes.
    Excellent, elegant, finesse, we could just blame her lack of power.
