This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Ledaig (Tobermory) and bottled by Single Cask Nation. Distilled in 2005 and bottled in 2018, this release was matured in a 2nd fill sherry cask and bottled without coloring or filtering at cask strength.
Sweet syrupy fruits, caramel, honey. Ashy, minerality, pungent peat. Seriously earthy.
Thick, syrupy and rich mouth feel. Mild heat. Lots of syrupy fruits - currant, toffee, figs, blackberry, stewed fruits. Then storms in the ashy, mineral forward peat. Lightly pungent, but more mineral and wood forward peat and smoke. Powerful and complex.
Long, powerful and pungent. Berries, stewed fruits, toffee and ash. Lots going on, with great balance.
SCN has picked a great one with this cask. Good, wine forward Ledaigs are much harder to find these days, but this one sticks all the things I love about the profile.
