Color of gasoline. Nose is a strange mingling of cardboard washed up among seaweed at low tide, some peat and smoke, but with a clean rock clear hard candy sweetness and maybe some fresh melon, all riding on a medicinally rubber odor like the smell of that discomforting flesh-colored rubber that was used on quack medical equipment in the '50s and early '60s. The palate is thus a surprise with its oily sweetness, rich tingles and organic richness, but still with a bit of grandma's medicine cabinet under it all. Uncloyingly sweet finish of moderate length that remains somewhat medicinal but fully pleasures the back and sides of the tongue. All in all, I loved it and found it unique.

"...that discomforting flesh-colored rubber..." -- great line, and I knew exactly what you meant.

Thanks for some insightful notes on a rather obscure distillery.

I love giving the Ledaig 10 to friends, just to watch their scrumpching, distorted faces when they first nose and taste it. No one has ever not finished it, though. As one acclimates to its oddness, it's sweet disjointed charms win one over.
