This is a young, cask strength Ledaig expression bottled by Signatory Vintage and selected by Binnys.
Buttered rolls, vanilla butter cream, super sweet icing note. Faint smokiness. Overall, very much a light, buttery, doughy dessert nose with some smoke on the back end.
Thick, rich, no real heat, despite the monster proof. Oily, rich, buttery mouth feel. Sweet lemon, vanilla, doughy dinner rolls. Faint minerality. Bold smoke presence and some pipe tobacco.
Long, growing heat. Very prominent smoke here taking over the previous dessert notes. Still very buttery presence though.
This was easily the most unique Ledaig that I have had before. The sweet nose, hugely rich mouth feel and buttery texture was really pleasant. Smoke balancing in the finish did it well, also.
