Ledaig 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islands, Scotland
Reviewed August 2, 2015 (edited January 5, 2019)
First impressions of the nose bring to mind the finesse of Laphroaig and the smoky vibrancy of Port Charlotte — I'm intrigued from the first moment; nose continues with smoked meat, malt, and morning dew; taste is of more sweet and smoky meat (prosciutto?), and next comes honeydew and medicinal, herbal tea; the complexity the peat offers this dram is pretty extravagant; the finish is long and smooth, like a nice English tobacco blend; Mull has impressed me with this one — Islay aficionados, do try. Great to have this in Glasgow's lovely Kelvingrove Café. Five stars for overall taste and value.
