This is an 11 year old expression from Ledaig, finished in a Hermitage cask. I don't know how long the finish was, but it has nice color to it. So I'm guessing a year or more.
Huge honey and the peat slap begins. Earthy, mineral forward, wet peat slap. Honey, caramel, sweet pastries and stewed fruits. Really notably rich.
Medium mouthfeel. Sweet honey, stewed fruits. Honeydew, pastries, lemon meringue, rich berries. Peat is present but less aggressive than the nose. Good balance and well restrained heat.
Long, earthy and peat dominant. Ashy and really void of fruitiness or sweets.
This was nice but couldn't keep up the momentum the nose was generating. Definitely enjoyable though and a definite nod to the consistent quality were seeing in a lot of these Ledaig IBs.
