Ledaig Sherry Finish, 42%

Price: $33.00 Issue: Fall 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

There’s no age statement, but the whisky is less than 10 years old -- and is a little green. Notes of toffee almonds, ripe fruit, freshly-ground pepper, chorizo, bacon fat, and damp peat smoke. Lingering smoke and brine on the finish. A few more years of maturation should improve this whisky significantly.
