Exclusive Malts 2005 Ledaig (distilled at Tobermory) 11 year old, 57.6%

Price: $100 Issue: Spring 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The nose opens with brine, fresh pine, sage, and sweet antiseptic. Peat, ginger, black pepper, lime, and lemon notes develop in time. Citrus fruits, caramel, and a peat-fueled barbecue on the palate, with background dark berries. The finish is medium in length, warming, and spicy, with plain chocolate and drying, crumbly peat.
