The Perfect Measure
18 Year Old
This is a fabulous single malt. A good friend and myself discovered it recently. When the bottle is first opened it has an intense smokiness on the nose. In the glass the smoke recedes somewhat, but the peatiness is more prominent. The flavour is rich and complex, with a slight harshness that becomes sweet notes after the bottle is first opened. The finish is complex and long and warming. My friend and I have now decided to visit Tobermory distillery when Covid permits to try some of their other variations. You will not be disappointed with this single malt that is worth every penny!
Ledaig 18 year old was new to me last year - it was a revelation. It has now become one of my favourite single malts. When the bottle is first opened the smokiness hits the nose, and this remains on the nose and palate in the first glass. It has a real kick of spice and yet has sweetness in the long finish. When revisited after a few days, the smokiness on the nose has faded, but remains on the palate (less harshly) and it is far more complex on the mouth and finish. There is pepper and spice with caramel and a long warming finish. My friend and I have pledged to visit Tobermory distillery once the Covid lockdown permits to sample some of the other products from this wonderful distillery.
Very smooth whiskey - not too peaty
Sweet, smokey and peated. A great combination!
I was already a fan of ledaig 10y, because it has an excellent balance between the peat and the martime type of whisky. This 18y it's having all this balance to another level. The balance between the smoke and the body of the whisky is perfect, and still adds the sweetness of the sherry cask. Probabily one of the best (peated) Whisky that I ever tasted.
