Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 GM

25 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.26 points

  1. mothers_finest scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A delicious whisky, and something different than a typical sherry finish ... Unfortunately, I miss the kick and that something to praise him in the sky. In the nose it is beautifully fruity sour, in conjunction with the typical Ledaig smoke. On the palate, however, I clearly lack the power. I like the flavor of the whisky, but I was hoping for more after the hiding here. In cask strength it would have been more mine.
    The finish is fine; the malt drags a bit in the nose, and the smoky note I feel in combination with the fruit (raspberry, a little vanilla, and this pleasant acidity of Hermitage red wine) as extremely pleasant. On the palate and departure he is not even soo musty. Also, the always mentioned car tires I have here at most in the nose ...
    A good part, balanced and tasty. PLV is absolutely right, but unfortunately it tastes a little bit lax or diluted. So I give 87 points, where the taste and nose are 'good' but not intoxicating, because too 'weak'. He does points in the pleasant finish and also the balance. PLV is nothing to complain about; the part costs 60 euros, since I have clearly had other things to drink!

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Lots of sweet, red fruits and strong campfire smoke rise from my glass. The influence of the wine is clearly noticeable right from the start (acidic impact). The alcohol content of 45% is very well integrated and imperceptible due to the intense aroma flavor. Overripe strawberries, cherries, redcurrant jam and wine form the fruity base with sweet-sour accents. Delicate hints of honey, dark chocolate and spicy oak linger with a slight muffiness in the background. Beautifully balanced!
    • Taste
      The Ledaig starts strong and pleasantly oily. Freshly ground pepper prances briefly on the tip of the tongue and causes a slight tingle. The intense campfire smoke sets a tasty exclamation point before the red (sweet-sour) fruits draw attention to themselves. Oranges, overripe strawberries, cherries, red currant jam and a beautiful vinousness promote the balance. In the background I register again dark chocolate and spicy oak notes. The tendency to strong contrast between smoke and fruit mixes to a harmonious taste experience. The taste of the alcohol is not noticeable and favors a nearly dangerous sweetness of Ledaigs.
    • Finish
      Medium long, vinous-fruity and smoky. The red fruits, which remain pleasantly sweet and slowly fade away, also dominate on the home straight. Dark chocolate and spicy oak remain hidden in the background. Associations with a fruity red wine are clearly perceptible. Finally, the camp fire smoke builds up powerful again and ensures a round finish.

  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    on the "fashion" Ledaig, a traffic jam with a singular finish.
    • Nose
      oily peat, iodine, smoked ham and its moldy skin, lemons, spices, a little wood too. return of fruit on the pickle.
    • Taste
      sweet peppery and sweet spices, wood chips, dried herbs a little cooked, ash after peat, fruit is very fresh, a little young with a return of toasted meat and glue.
    • Finish
      pronounced on the same aromas, lasts pleasantly.

  4. Othorion scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful composition, the wine is present without slaying the dram. Very tasty!
    • Nose
      Campfire, sweet, fruity, sour berries, the typical Ledaig mustiness, strong wine notes, currants,
    • Taste
      Strong onset, some coffee, sweet and sour berries, black pepper, and lots of smoke, nice tasty and harmonious
    • Finish
      Medium, with smoke, the sour currants and pepper, at the end then a little walnuts

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Peat and wine, that can bite. Rarely have there been such a harmonious, complementary interaction as here. Sure, he could possibly tolerate a few percent more and the complexity may not be too big, but it's just fun. And that's worth the 90 points for me.
    • Nose
      Tart fruit notes on the nose, redcurrants, wine, but also a good portion of peat, sweet, fruity, vinous, not over complex, but very harmonious. Nothing works, everything merges.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, the 45% are exactly right. First tingling, a slightly ashy peat attack, then again sour tart fruit notes, the wine is present over time again and mixes with the peat, minimal cowshed, some country air. Herb, sweet, wine, peat, fits.
    • Finish
      first vinous, fruity, soft, then the smoke comes again clearly to wear. Round and harmonious.

    N: Rust, iron, salt, gravel, Pinot noir, sage, oregano, meaty, sour candy
    T: Creamy, milk chocolate, minerals, slate, gritty, funky sour wine. Great mouthfeel
    F: herbal, drying, salty, sweet, satisfying. Dark chocolate

    87/100

    The nose does not prepare you for the creamy rich mouthfeel. The funk kicks in a second later. Really good balance, I find. My notes don’t sound appealing, but it’s one you have to try for yourself. A really crazy whisky. Not a huge leap to a Springbank fan, per se. actually I would have guessed a Springbank blind. Really good and really interesting.
