BTC #14: Ledaig 11, 2005-2017, 58.6% – Signatory

Yes! Another zero pointer! I’m getting back to my usual self, apparently. Also, my Peatometer is broken. Or I’m having more of a cold than I though. Or my sample was weird. I don’t really think I can blame things … Continue reading

Since I’m trying to ‘pay my dues’ to the people who sent me samples over the last year or so, I just grabbed the one closest to me when I checked my cupboard. It just happened to be this Ledaig. … Continue reading

Tobermory 1972-2005, 32 years old, Oloroso sherry cask finish, 49.5%
