5th October 2018
Review of Ledaig 1998 19 Year Old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish Distell 2018 Malt Whisky Collection.

Ledaig 1998 19 Year Old Oloroso Sherry Cask FinishThis Ledaig 1998 19 Year Old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish is one of two Ledaig 19 year old expressions in Distell's inaugural Malt Whisky Collection.

Initially matured for just under 6 years after being distilled in traditional oak whisky casks it was then finished in Oloroso sherry casks for almost 14 years. Bottled at 46.3% ABV, natural colour and non chill filtered, a limited release of 2,400 bottles in total.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A gentle sweet heather honey smokiness, a touch of lemon citrus and orange, a little oak spice.

Taste: Orange and lemon infused smoky bacon leads leads the charge then gives way to some spice and some bittersweet dark chocolate and some nuttiness.

Finish: Longish, mildly spicy finish, smoky bacon, the bittersweet dark chocolate becomes oaky, mildly drying and a little salty.

Comment: I would say this is one which would really grow on you after a few drams. Bottled at 46.3% ABV. I would loved to have tasted it at cask strength but even at this strength it is a pleasure.

SMW Score 84/100
