Nose

Cardboard. Farmyard. Vegetal peat and funk. A tad sulphury with some raspberry. Undertones of cacao, coconut and coffee with milk. Toffee apple.

Taste

Wine corks. Wet oak. Mulch. Earthy peat. Oily citrus. Menthol.

Finish

Medium-long. Cherry menthol. Chemical smoke. Bitter wood. Woodspice. Toffee. Slight hints of bay rum.

Comments

It’s no secret I love Ledaig so I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I was quite boggled by the cask effect though, the sherry was very different to the similar casks I’ve tried, but it was quite enjoyably unique.

Nose

Sauerkraut and vegetal peat. This immediately reminds me of Ledaig. It is warm and sweet with sugary breakfast cereals, but also fruity (soft orange aroma), and a hint of bacon to boot.

Taste

Big whisky. Lots of peat, a sliver of iodine, and subtle barbecue notes. Cherry syrup, as well, with finally a touch of sulphur (gun powder).

Finish

Some ash, fresh peat and finally some sweeter touches.

Comments

Young Ledaig, whether it is from a bourbon or a sherry cask (like this one), always delivers. No exception today.

Nose

Anfangs dezent sherry-süß-fruchtig, die Süße entfaltet sich aber zunehmends und wieder schwerer bzw. dichter, tolle Fruchtaromen, dezent herbe Eiche und eine Assoziation zu Suppenwürfel, der Kuhstall-Rauch ist auch wunderbar ausgeprägt!

Taste

Kräftiger Rauch mit den klassischehn "farmy notes", verkohltes Fleisch und schwarz gewordenene Folienkartoffel, BBQ-Sauce, ausgesprochen fruchtig, ja und sogar ein bisschen Leukotape;
Mit Wasser deutlich mehr "farmy notes", Kuhstall bzw. Dung und ein angezündetes Streichholz - Schwefel!

Finish

Kräftig-rauchig, würzig, trocken mit einer stetigen Schwefelnote, mittel-lang;

Comments

Ein saugailer Ledaig aus dem 1st fill Sherry-Fass! Fast schon grober Stoff!

Nose

speckiger Rauch gepaart mit viel Frucht. Burgeressen bei McDonalds. Birnenkompott, Haselnüsse und Pflaumen. Als ich am Samplefläschchen gerochen habe, hätte ich auf Laphrpaigrauch geschworen, jetzt im Glas bin ich mir nicht mehr sicher. Vom Geruch her eher ein Kilchoman?

Taste

puuuh ist der heftig, Hilfe, Wasser! gefühlt an die 60 vol % (für nen ersten Whisky heute zu stark für mich!). Aber was für eine Aromenbombe! schöner prominenter Rauch, dazu Holzwürze, Honigsüße und prima Fruchtnoten. Alles sehr intensiv; ich glaube er ist nicht zu alt, denn er hat noch etwas metallisches dabei. Gefällt mir insgesamt prima

Finish

recht süß, extrem langanhaltend und dabei trockener werdend, der Gaumen bleibt lange trocken belegt. Jetzt habe ich doch das Gefühl er ist älter...


Comments

Blindverkostung!

Sehr toll! Ich tippe auf Islay, Kilchoman mit ca. 58% und ca. 7 Jahre. Sherry Butt.


Edit: nach ca. 20 Minuten hab ich immer noch eine tolle Holzwürze im Mund, bin nun eher überzeugt einen deutlich älteren Whisky im Glas gehabt zu haben...bin auf die Auflösung gespannt

Well, very "stinky", even for a 2004/05 SV Ledaig which have all this teint. You have to like these stinky farmy smoky notes, I do so. But here not too much sulfur like other 2005 ones - it´s present but not overwhelming. 

14/07/17: little correction - not TOO much sulfur but still VERY present ;-)   needs and can take water to equilibrate.
