A big and punchy peat monster from Ledaig, bottled by The Whisky Exchange and released at The Whisky Show 2013 with a striking retro look. One of the hits of the Show Bottlings stand, with a stunning combination of peat and sherry that's packed with flavour beyond its years.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Big sherry fruit and charcoal smoke up front, with green leaves, school plimsolls, brine, gravel, fruit cake and cinnamon spice providing depth.
Hot spice and cooling menthol fight on the tongue, with tar, charcoal, rich fruit cake and raisins providing some respite. The leafiness from the nose continues, with German black bread, sweet cured bacon and 'tasty burnt bits' umami. Water knocks out some of the spice, kicking up the dark fruit a notch and bringing in soft black liquorice.
Much softer than expected, with hints of liquorice, sweet apple, smoked ham and raisin.
A fantastic example of this increasingly popular style of young Ledaig - lots of sherry, lots of smoke and lots of flavour. Full of fruit and sweet smoke, it's definitely showing that Islay isn't the only place to find big peat.

The Ledaig house flavour is clearly perceptible underneath a moderate to heavy sherry cask influence. At cask strength, this will be too strong to get all of the flavours out of, but a little water nicely tones down the bite and brings out the usual, ephemeral and slightly hard to pin down parts of Ledaig, including rubber, leather, a grass-cuttings taste/smell and on top of that the fruits and raisins of the sherry. Fairly worth it, and you might even want to pick up one to hold on to...
Great whisky, very similar to a sherry matured Port Charlotte which is never a bad thing. Ordered another as soon as a tasted it.
