Member Ratings and Notes

N: Fruit, paint, salty jerky, spent matches.  VEry complex.  Enjoyable to nose for some time.


P: More paint, fruit, brown honey mustard (needed some prompting for that but it is there).


F: Medium, tasty, has a great complexity to savor. Goes back and forth from sweet to spicy mustard. Like other Ledaigs but fuller body and more flavor.

Generically whatever. 
Spicy peat on the nose.  A tasty sweet syrup in which the peat takes a back seat to strong citrus flavors, mainly oranges.  Ledaig seems to be very hit or miss, this one is a hit.   (P.S.  Nice notes Andy, very detailed.) 
Sharp. Substantial peat. Smooth. Not too salty. 
Fruit bomb with bitter finish
