Safe Haven 6yo 2014

Released as part of the Mystery Malt series from Murray McDavid comes Safe Haven! A six year old single malt from an undisclosed distillery, we don't even know the region it hails from, so it really is quite mysterious. What we do know is, the whisky was distilled in 2014, matured in bourbon hogsheads, and finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks before bottling. It has a distinctly peaty character with plenty of smoke which could help provide a clue, and will certainly make an enjoyable dram for any peat lover.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Pungent peat and bonfire ash with wafts of candied orange, sultanas, and raisins.

Palate Sherried fruit continues with sweet spiced fig and date, alongside young peppery oak, smoked wood, and wafts of vanilla.

Finish Charred oak and lingering peat smoke continue with earthy spice, candied ginger, and crystallised fruit.

Great dram for the price
I really liked this. So did my wife, and she's very fussy. I tried this at Stirling whisky festival and bought a bottle on the back of that. I wasn't disappointed.

Ok for the price. Get a real Ledaig instead.
When you consider the price this is decent value whisky.

Yes you have a strong peatsmoke on the nose but the PX finish has stripped a lot of that from the pallate. It's obviously Ledaig from the infomation provided so i suspect what happened here is that after a few years the casks were judged to be low reactors and were sold off. Murray McDavid probally saw a PX finish as an easy way to round it off to the point they could get it out quickly and this release is the product of that.

It's defintely not a bad whisky. It's just noting exciting.
