​Revew #275 – Signatory Vintage Ledaig 2005 9yr First Fill Sherry

Whiskey Network Review #275 | /r/Scotch Review #116 – Signatory Vintage 2005 Ledaig 9yr FF Sherry, 112pf | 56.0% ABV

Nose: Dirt, sherry, fruit, plum, forest fire, very mineral heavy and oddly field like (more grassy than floral)

Taste: Oily mouth feel and instantly smokey. Kind of an oatmeal note. Sherry is very prominent with fig, date, plum. Apples, raspberry jam. Burning things – very mineral heavy and very woody. Not ashy but a very strong forest note with wood and smoke and herbal grassy peat. Like a goddamn forest fire. This is really something else

Finish: Long, thick and rich. full of smoke but also well blended with the added complexity of the sherry.

Overall: This is crazy unique and also crazy good. I’m really enjoying how the peat here is presented – very prominent and different from other big peat bombs. The sherry plays along very very well and makes the dram thick, rich and syrupy. All in all, I’m a fan. I’m giving this a Rank 7 and I’m now feeling an urge to pick up a bottle.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
