Andytka3 gave this whisky 83 points

Closed and shy at the beginning and take a while for it to open up. Moldy coco smokes with good caramelized green apple. Packed with oily nuttiness derived from the sherry butt, much one dimensional with wood driven that have had masked the saltiness and usual marine notes. Salted olive oil. Medium length.

— at Whisky Live Singapore.

Nose

Le nez est une merveille, la tourbe se fait discrète derrière les fruits et les fleurs, on retrouve le côté minéral et carné de Ledaig et une explosion de senteurs florales, c'est très fin comme un Japonais!

Taste

En bouche, beaucoup de saveurs là aussi, la tourbe est très présente, réglisse, bacon, puis les épices arrivent, le piment qui relève le tout.

Finish

La finale est longue très florale, recouverte d'un voile de fumée.

Comments

Un grand Ledaig avec une large palette aromatique, le nez est sublime!

aphex gave this whisky 91 points

Nose : First nosing is quite medicinal (iodine), farmy and strong. The peaty sherry aromas come afterwards with smoke, grilled bacon, spices, nuts, dried fruits, orange zest, chocolate, coffee. The nose becomes more subtle and refined with aeration. I sense some earthy and mineral notes and maybe coastal ones in the background. Whiffs of tobacco too.

Mouth : The attack is sharp. Smoky, meaty, spicy. Flavours from the nose indeed with chocolate, coffee, nuts too. A pinch of salt, liquorice and a few berries.

Finish : Long, smoky, drying.


I will make it short. What a fantastic Ledaig. Complex and tasty. And the bottle was just opened !
