Nose

After pouring a dram the typical Ledaig peatyness immediately fills the room. Sweet with notes of cowshed and a tarry sootiness at first nosing. Some lovely lemon cake aromas are coming up. Very good, if you like peated whiskies.

Taste

Powerful, fresh, bold and sharp at first mouthfeel. It bites! 

Tons of lemons and peat as expected with notes of raw almonds and smoked fish in the background. Very good.
Finish

Long with the peaty aromas lingering on.

Comments

Typical and very good young Ledaig.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Turf, leer, maar ook zoet, karamel, toffee. Citrus ook, vanille, chocola.

Taste

Vol, peperig, turf, as. Citrus. Stevig karakter, komt volwassen over voor een relatief jonge whisky.

Finish

Middellang, peperig nog, fruitig (citrus), vanille.

Comments

Dit is echt een hele mooie whisky voor een zeer schappelijke prijs. Enige is dat ik de invloeden van het sherryvat er niet echt uitgehaald heb, maar dat doet verder niets af aan de whisky, genoeg te genieten.

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?

Nose

Toffee, lots of toffee, those high fibre packs with nuts and raisins, thick beef gravy, black pepper, oxo cube, seasoned mackerel and soy sauce. Lots of strong smells. 

Taste

Quite oily in the mouth and dry, but in a good way, caramel chocolate, lots of spice,  barbecue sauce,and more toffee .

Finish

A long dry and quite an earthy spice finish. 

Comments

This needed just a tiny drop of water to give you both barrels, and what a delight. 

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?

Nose

Süßlicher Torfrauch, leicht Zitrusnoten, viel Power in der Nase. Jung und kraftvoll - das war zu erwarten. Vom Sherry Butt ist nicht wirklich viel zu spüren, vielmehr hätte ich hier auf ein Ex-Bourbon-Cask getippt. Honig, helle Früchte.

Taste

Kraftvoller Antritt. Zunächst süßlicher Rauch, der Nase ähnlich. Dieser geht langsam in trockenen Asche-/Torfrauch über. Zitrusnoten, auch hier noch etwas süßer Honig. Den Sherry-Einfluss finde ich nicht wirklich, vermisse ich aber auch nicht.

Finish

Kurz und knackig, über bleibt der Rauch und ein leicht trockenes Mundgefühl.

Comments

Kein schlechter Malt, wenngleich nicht wirklich überraschend oder komplex, zumal der Abgang recht kurz ausfällt. Wer auf junge, kraftvolle Malts mit ordentlich Rauch steht, könnte hier fündig werden. Mir fehlt da der Wiedererkennungswert, um wirklich gute Noten zu vergeben.

Nose

Pepper, tar, briny - coastal, seaweed and oily. Chocolate, yellow fruits, vanilla, plums, mint, lychees, lemon and apple. Ashes, spicy curry and figs.

Smoke, peat, ashes, liquorice and black bean sauce. Some orange, citrus fruits, apple and later creamy. Carton, warming and a trace of forest fruits. With water more meaty notes and spices.

Tasted head-to-head with the Lagavulin 12 CS 2016. 
Very good complex and dinkable dram at the strength of 60,9%.
