    This is rather surprisingly good... I'm not a fan of modern Tobermory spirit, but the wine finish plays very well with the Ledaig.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The nose is a ton of red fruit and subtle peat smoke. Tea smoke and fat, with a wonderful twist of cinnamon and spice.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The palate us like taking a myself bath in Marsala. Rich fruits meet with soft earthy mud, peat bog and fresh malt.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish is sort of on the short side of medium, ashy smoke and red wine with a hint of treacle and oaky vanilla.

    Not the best but sufficiently another grotesque Ledaig. Especially because the nose / taste / finish variation.
    • Nose
      Strong sulfuric smoke. Salted caramel, herbals, spices, orange peel, earth, acidic wine and burnt gum. Forest fruits.
    • Taste
      Strongly spicy: pepper, ginger and cinnamon. Tannic oak. Sweet fruits, honey and salted caramel. Herbals.
    • Finish
      Long, fresh, sweet and spicy.

    • Nose
      Hui, there's a lot coming out of the glass!
      Strong, greasy smoke, sweet fruity dessert wine, tiramisu, salty caramel ... Unbelievably complex and maybe even a bit impetuous aromas of aromas. The alcohol is not noticeable. Over time, the smoke becomes a little dirtier towards ash, at the same time the overall impression becomes spicier and less sweet. Have the whisky at least 30 minutes only broken before the first try ...
    • Taste
      Strong and full. Red grapes. Cherries. Smoked bacon. Pepper. Short bursts of caramel sweetness, but then oak and smoke come and cover them with cocoa powder and campfire smoke.
    • Finish
      Long and smoky. With a little dark chocolate and again salt.

    Nose: squealing tires, earthy + dirty peat smoke, damp cardboard, behind the subtle red sweetness of the Marsala wine, the direction strawberry goes. Also hidden well behind the peat is a neat portion of vanilla, which increases when the whisky is heated by hand. The alcohol is very well integrated, it could almost be a little bit stronger.

    Taste: at first very soft, clear sweetness with hints of red fruits and caramel, then the peat prevails, the oak is also clearly noticeable, here fit the 51% outstanding

    Finish: medium in length, here too the sweetness first, especially caramel and acacia honey, then the rubber peat neatly sets. As it fades, it becomes drier and drier, with the vanilla in the back, as well as the very spicy oak, and then, after a while, the finish gets a totally malty taste, as if you were nibbling a handful of grain.

    Water: with two drops of water, it is surprisingly sharper, it has more pepper in the nose, but also the red fruit is more effective. I would rather give up the Wassser.

    Conclusion: With this one, I have mixed feelings, as with so many Ledaigs. He is filthy, mean, yet well-seasoned and well-hidden, with some nice sweet elements like the quite intense vanilla and red fruits. And the rubber smell belongs to the Ledaig also somehow to the mark, normally I would always classify sulfur as a false grade. Definitely a very interesting drop, even if it does not fit into my prey scheme. I would not buy a whole bottle. But I'm happy to be able to try that - 84 points
