    Strange feelings. The fragrance would be more appropriate for Tpbermory releases than Ledaig. Very quiet, delicate, delicate, without the traditional brutal nuances. Next is a more familiar style. Definitely delicious and not easy to develop. Interesting job.
    • Nose

      Sweet cottage cheese, cashews, silage pit, vanilla, fruit roll (apples, plums and black currants), roasted chestnuts, firm acidity, soft, barely palatable peat, floral, marine salinity, slightly earthy, lemon, kumquat. A very subtle scent that is not typical of bright, usually Ledaig.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Dry peat, sour, sweet-smoky, lemon, grapefruit.

    • Nose
      Typical single with lots of salt, citrus tones, peat smoke and full farm aromas to earth, rainy hay and metallic accents. Cooled still, some honey and a hint of green banana.
      With water: smokey, rusty, salt again farm aromas, citrus zests and rainy hay. Wonderfully filigree and extremely structured composition. Top!
    • Taste
      Clear and salty at first, but then a huge peat smoke breaks in. In addition, oak, citrus zests, complex farmyard aromas and almost lyrical. Beautifully composed and focused on the Brennereicharakter.
      With water: wonderful brennereitypisch, peat smoke, salt, Zitruszesten, spicy roasted aromas, farm, top!
    • Finish
      Very long, full and full of roasted-smoky peat flavors and salt.

      Peat and lime. Somewhat fishy. A bit of chocolate cookie. With water some apple.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Dry peat. Printen in chocolate. A fruity undertone of lime.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Peat, dark chocolate and sweet lime.
