Ledaig 2005

Ledaig is the name peated malts from Tobermory carry, and the nose on this one is smoky and phenolic with heather, charred oak, and hints of tar. The taste is peaty, mouth-coating and peppery with an unexpected caramel apple note that shows up as the initial punch fades. There’s a nicely complex balance of smokiness and tangy sweetness. The finish is tangy and sweet with a hint of lingering smoke, and reminds me of a good barbecue sauce. Excellent!
