"Signature Ledaig with notes of sauerkraut and ripe bananas, with a whiff of seaweed and vibrant citrus notes. Pretty smokey too, of course. The balance is top notch. The palate is salty with hints of olive brine, but also fudge and mil chocolate. Plenty of peat smoke again, and a nice creamy mouthfeel."
