Tasting Notes

Ledaig 18 Year Old - 1997 / Cask 643023 Tasting Notes

Appearance: pale gold.

Nose: Peat, but unusual peat - fresh, ashy, almost ashtray like, and it duels with honey and citrus. Feisty, even for its age. Vanilla. Coal dust. Digestive biscuits and dried hops.

Palate: a pugnacious contrast of dry, ashy peat and vanilla, and a touch of menthol in there too. Water brings out many more mellow apple notes, pears, and light floral honey. With time comes more malty and husky qualities. An interesting fight between the ashiness and those fruit qualities reminiscent of some outlier Caol Ilas.

Finish: cigar smoke, malted milk biscuits, black pepper. A touch of menthol.
