Ledaig 2005 Reviews
Tasting notes from the producerNose: New leather, singed raisins, bicycle inner tubes, thick peat smoke and rich berry fruit – a classic sherried Ledaig. With time, cinder toffee, sour cherries and blackcurrant jam emerge from the smoky darkness.
Palate: Surprisingly approachable, with sweet barbecue glaze, wood smoke and thick raisin jam backed up by barrel char, tar and a distant tyre fire. The dried fruit and Christmas cake notes build, but don't become too sweet. Black liquorice sits underneath everything.
Finish: A burst of cherry menthol becomes tar and then sweet smoke. Smoke and spice linger.
Comment: A monster, but one with complexity and some subtlety, if you give it time.

Had a fair few sherry Ledaigs over the over the years, most have been good, some really amazing but the last few were a bit lacking - casks 900160/1. This baby is superb though, not the smokiest by far but it is so dense, jammy, tarry, rich and complex . Outstanding whisky just wish I could have bought a couple of bottles
