  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Even though the sherry impact is not huge, it still completely overpowers the bourbon cask influence. Probably it wasn't very cask-driven initially.

  5. gerrit de guru scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Soft peat and sherry. The peat dominates.
    • Taste
      Boom. Good arrival.  Salty, farmy, wet wood and flinty. Also these sweet vegetal notes. Not overly sherried, au contraire.
    • Finish
      Short but intense.

  6. Thorgal did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Wonderful whisky at the age of 10 years. The finish of just three months in the PX Octave cask has given it a very delicate and sweetish hint. Together with the smokiness, it makes for a very enjoyable dram.

    Pity just 74 bottles are available, this is a seriously good Ledaig!
