Ledaig 12 Year Old
70cl / 58.4%
- Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- The Whisky Exchange
A big, rich and smoky Ledaig, selected and bottled specially for The Whisky Show 2018, celebrating the 10th show. It's got an incredible 3d lenticular label that is almost as impressive as the whisky inside the bottle: smoky spirit from the Isle of Mull's Tobermory distillery, matured in a flavoursome sherry butt. It combines coastal peat smoke with rich fruit and a powerful punch of intensity. Named "Present Future", this is the style of dram that's coming into vogue at the moment, packed with intense smoky flavour.

Tasting notes from Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Rich peat smoke rolls out of the glass. With the smoke come chocolate limes, freshly slapped mint sprigs, bung cloth and tarry ropes. At the core sits a balancing act between thick smoke and syrupy sweetness.
Palate: Ash, tar and rich chocolatey sweetness. Dark chocolate sweetness leads to After Eight mints, lemon Lockets, chocolate limes and salted caramel. Zingy menthol tingles on the tongue, along with a touch of icing sugar.
Finish: Tar, black pepper and lingering sweetness - chocolate, candied lemon and a hint of lime.

If you are looking for that rare smoky sherry whisky combination with a thick, syrup-y, rich, dirty profile, look no further.
