Distilled July 2005. Bottled at cask strength in August 2015. Cask #10. 235 bottles. From Single Cask Nation, I do not know why this heavily peated expression is not labeled as Ledaig, but no matter what name is on the bottle, the contests are exactly what I look for in a peated dram from a bourbon hogshead. I get similarities to both Coal Ila for the briny characteristics and Port Charlotte for the peatiness, even though this one is only 40-45 ppm.
I don't normally purchase multiples of single cask bottlings, but I purchased 3 bottles of this one (2 for me and 1 for my mother-in-law).
This is another review that is long overdue. I promised @NamBeist 6 months ago that I would write it. I apologize for taking so long to finally do so.
Color: Light Gold
Nose: Initially slight onion, immediately followed by an earthy, briny character.
Palate: Oily, tarry, sweet peat, burnt marshmallows.
Finish: Long lasting, waxy, peat smoke, vanilla and damp charred sticks.
