Ledaig 15 yo 1990/2006

Ledaig 15 yo 1990/2006

Connoisseur's Choice, Gordon & Macphail

Single malt - Islands
Dark gold
43% ABV

Nose: Grilled fish, leather, smoke peat, grass, cooked rice, malty beer, blueberries, hints of oats.
Mouthfeel: Light body, loose, airy, fizzy, slippery.
Tasting: Sour salty. Cooked rice, grass, smoke, oats, malty beer, blueberries, peat, hints of cream.
Finish: Medium. Chillies, cooked rice, peat, malty beer.


This whisky is something of a chameleon. When first poured, it reeks of grilled fish, leather and salty sea breeze. Left to sit for 5 minutes, it softens to smoky, starchy cooked rice, sweet malted wort, and light cereal and fruit. If you smoked rice, then fermented it into sake, maybe it would taste like this.


I like this.
