Not enough users have reviewed this.

  • Distiller:

    Tobermory

  • Bottler:

    Gordon & MacPhail

  • ABV:

    45%

  • Age:

    11 Years

  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Huge honey and the peat slap begins. Earthy, mineral forward, wet peat slap. Honey, caramel, sweet pastries and stewed fruits. Really notably rich.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    Long, earthy and peat dominant. Ashy and really void of fruitiness or sweets.

  • Overall:

    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.

  • Score:

    6
