    Nose-soaked with smoke, sweet slightly mineral smoke from the fire.
    Taste - EARTH, very earthy Ledaig with a clear influence of the sherry olorosso barrel (dried fruit like raisins or dates), very pleasant.
    Finish - Warming up, the earth remains on the tongue with smoke, slowly disappearing.
    To sum up - If you like earthy smoky climates with a sherry barrel, this is the perfect position!

    87/88. Compared to cask 900160, there's more dark fruitiness in this one. I think it's a bit better than that one. If it were priced as an 11-year-old, I'd definitely buy it.

      Caramel, milk chocolate, peat, blueberry and salty pretzels. When adding water there's a lot of sugar-roasted nuts.

    Good, but worlds away from the 2004 barrels.

    • Nose
      Sweet, smoky and fruity on one level, definitely sherry, maritime notes, slightly metallic

      Strong onset, noticeable alcohol, medical smoke, slightly dry, red fruits, white pepper, oak spice
    • Finish
      Fruity, slightly dry, oak, smoke

    Surprisingly good for a 10yo non Islay. But wouldn't pay 150.
    • Nose
      Very Sherried nose, some peat

      Pennies, old coins
    • Taste
      Wow, lovely
