If you are a peat head and want to widen your horizon beyond Islay, this Single Malt is waiting to be discovered! At first glimpse, Ledaig 10 (peated Tobermory) is very reminiscent of Islay malts - but it's less sweet and distinctly different. A complex bouquet of smoked ham, sea salt, citrus fruits and both floral and savory notes lingers below intense, mineral peatiness. The arrival is strong, fresh and rather dry, followed by burned licorice, aniseed and loads of white pepper. Distant maritime notes with a touch of mint crown the substantial finish. A first-class malt!

There's an initial hit of peat smoke (not overly antiseptic) with lemon juice, vanilla and black pepper developing after you let it sit for a few minutes. There's a seaweed/maritime savoury note also.

Taste:
Peat SmokeSweetVanillaPepper
Sweet, peaty arrival with vanilla sweetness and black pepper. The peat is medium strength and not as overpowering as a lot of the more popular Islay offerings.

Finish:
Peat SmokeMaltSpicesPepper
Medium/long with lingering smoke and black pepper/spice.

Comment:
Worth adding a few drops of water, but won't take too much.
Compared to a lot of peated Islay malts this is much more up my street. The peat is restrained but still very much at the forefront and doesn't overpower the other aspects of the flavour. It might be a little sweet for my tastes, but well worth trying at the asking price.

Comment: It is indeed in Islay malts style, my first impression was: oh, similar to Lagavulin. But it is more sweet and less smoky (even with the same ppm level as far as internet says). With all well balanced complexity, with no caramell added, no chill filtration this is probably my favourite whisky on the market for really affordable price. Must have for all peat lovers!

Nosing: LeatherSaltPeat Smoke (but not overwhelmingly so), and a pleasantly Surprising faint Pineapple , discovered through a series of short sniffs, rather than deep inhalation.

Taste: Peat SmokeOak and a subtle, complementary Sweet

Finish: SeaweedCoffee and a sweeter Oak as compared to the spicier/bitter Oak revealed during tasting

Comment: Half- or (three-)quarter star ratings are missed in rating Ledaig 10-year. This is as close to a four-star rated whisky as I have had without quite reaching that plateau.
