Ledaig 2008 Sherry Puncheon Private Vintage 
Deer, Bear & Moose — masters of flavour, aroma and colour — are back. Guided by the sun and fueled by their relentless obsession to find the perfect dram, they traveled to the Hebridean Isle of Mull, where lies a lonesome distillery that goes by the name of Tobermory.

This time, the Wild Trio found a golden goodness that hails from heavily peated barley and is finished in a Sherry Puncheon cask...

Bear (enthusiastically): “Her smoky, earthy body wrapped in dried fruits and bottled at a natural cask strength of 60.7% abvman, just left us speechless. Ledaig Sherry Puncheon is a young sweet princess, born in 2008. But don't be fooled... this youngling has some courage and tons of character. Seriously!”

Ratings & Reviews
Oily rich flavour with citrus and vanilla. Lovely dram
Finish is a little on the too-spicy side, but good dram otherwise
A bold smoky sweet flavor.
Love the sweetness in this one. Leaves a sweet hickory taste in your mouth long after.
The whisky is a pale straw color. It leaves an oily slick on the sides of the glass, only eventually forming a few thick legs. On the first nosing I got slammed with strong phenols and not much else. I let it sit in the glass for a while and the phenols faded, revealing strong florals and smoke. I had to taste this at full strength, being the strongest dram I've ever tried. Surprisingly, there was some light sweetness like a light syrup before the smoke kicked in and the alcohol burned up my taste buds. The finish was very strong and very peaty. After a couple of sips I added a bit of water to tame it down. The water brought out the floral notes and some rye-like spice on the palate. Combined with the sweetness and the smoke it was not bad at all, the smoke being reminiscent of a BBQ. The finish was still smoky just not so strong.
Nose of smoked cherry with a beautiful light finish. I love sherry casks, so this is right up my alley. Lovely.
One of the best peated drams I've ever had, despite its youth. Needs a few drops of water to tame at this strength but still silky smooth regardless. Lots of spice, intense peat, a touch of honey and a good, long finish!
Reviews seem to tend to the extreme. Love or hate. For my taste its rather rough, thin, peat is not balanced. Lacks aromas. But I dont smell gasoline or petrol. Its not the first whiskey to try on an evening, but maybe the last one.
Great peatyness, fresh and crisp with looooong finish. Very nice.
I think I know why Ledaig have up this batch. They didn't want to ruin their brand name. It tastes like gasoline/petrol. Yes, I know what gas tastes like, I've made a few mistakes siphoning before. A waste of money, I'll be finishing this bottle drowning it in coke. I was prepared for a harsh drink considering it is 120 proof and only 7 years old but this is not good at all. I probably won't be trusting the "private bottling" nonsense any more.
Absolutely disgusting. It tastes like your hands smell just after putting fuel in your car. Smells of chemicals.
I haven't ever had a scotch this bad, not even Cutty Sark. The strong taste of kerosene gives way to a turpentine after taste after a few short hours.
Smoky, smoky, smoky. Wonderful flavors! Some of which I have no words for. Add a little water to extenuate flavor, which will bring out the undertones of fruit. Non-chill filtered and no carmel added on this one. Great stuff!
