Evidently this stuff is pronounced "Led-chig." Well, duh.
On the nose this is very Islay-ish. Sweet, tarry, medicinal, sort of swampy. An interesting nose with a fair bit going on. Better with water.
In the mouth it hits with immediate peat and a very Bowmore-like sweetness, and also a touch of that Bowmore dirtiness that sometimes puts me off of the stuff. Undiluted, I notice a slight pine/juniper flavour. Without water it is a bit rough, and hot. Pretty nice, oily body on it. That oily peat flavour persists well into the finish.
This is certainly not the most graceful malt I've come across but it has a lot to offer, especially for those willing to add a splash of water.
