Bottler: Single Cask Nation
Selection: Single Cask Nation
ABV: 57.1% ABV
Age: 13 Years
Nose: Sweet syrupy fruits, caramel, honey. Ashy, minerality, pungent peat. Seriously earthy.
Taste: Thick, syrupy and rich mouth feel. Mild heat. Lots of syrupy fruits – currant, toffee, figs, blackberry, stewed fruits. Then storms in the ashy, mineral forward peat. Lightly pungent, but more mineral and wood forward peat and smoke. Powerful and complex.
Finish: Long, powerful and pungent. Berries, stewed fruits, toffee and ash. Lots going on, with great balance.
Overall: SCN has picked a great one with this cask. Good, wine forward Ledaigs are much harder to find these days, but this one sticks all the things I love about the profile.
