Ledaig 18 yo (1993/2011), G&M CC, 43 %

This Ledaig comes from a refill sherry butt. The sherry notes balance perfect with the salty Island notes in the smell. Not much sweetness here, only a bit from the dried fruits. A robust whisky, like standing on the edge of cliff and feel the breeze from the big waves coming in.

The taste is great. The salty, dry, light peaty taste mixed with some dried fruit is again very well balanced. If you like Island whisky, you will like this! It gets a bit watery in the finish and dies to fast.

I would love to taste this at cask strength! I am sure it would have been a high scorer! I will rate this 89/100 (22/23/21/23).
