Distilled in 1996 and matured in ex-sherry casks for 19 years, this Ledaig 1996 Vintage is a single malt Scotch whisky that offers a complex and rewarding drinking experience. The sherry cask influence contributes rich and fruity notes, while the long maturation results in a well-rounded and smooth dram.

Description

Nose:

  • Sherry Influence: Rich and fruity with notes of dried fruits (raisins, prunes, figs), honey, and a hint of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg).
  • Peat Influence (varies by bottle):
    • Strong: If the peat smoke is prominent, expect aromas of bonfire smoke, seaweed, iodine, and a touch of medicinal character.
    • Light: A more subtle smokiness with hints of sea spray and brine.

Palate:

  • Sherry Influence: Full-bodied and creamy with flavors of sherry, raisins, prunes, dates, and hints of orange peel.
  • Peat Influence:
    • Strong: The peat smoke mingles with the sherry sweetness, creating a complex interplay of flavors. Imagine smoked raisins, earthy tones, and a touch of black pepper.
    • Light: The sherry sweetness takes center stage with subtle hints of smoke and a touch of maritime salinity.

Finish:

  • Long and warming with lingering notes of sherry, spice (cinnamon, ginger), oak, and a gentle fade of smoke (depending on the peat intensity).

Smooth with a spicy salt tail, these disappear into the dark as the peaty embers glow into a smoky finale.
