Raided Score: 81 Publication: SpiritSurveyor Excerpt: This wasn’t super peated as some people might think but I think it is rather well balanced and has a fair amount of oomf and flavor to it. Sweet, peat, and citrus are a winning combo in my book.

This is a core expression release from Ledaig, which is peated distillate hailing from Tobermory distillery.
Huge mineral wiff, earthy, dirty peat. Faint iodine. Faint fishy marine notes. Vanilla cream, confectioners sugar. Nice brine and pepper component.
Thin, but no heat. Sweet vanilla, lots of chalky, mineral peat smoke. Some pepper, caramel and cream.
Long, earthy and smokey. Lots of minerals here. The peat smoke is more earthy, mineral and peppery than ashy or super fish like.
This is really great, especially for a younger core expression. Nice work, Ledaig.
