5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.21 points

  1. malthead-sven scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Ambivalent Malt, who definitely needs time and water to play his strengths
    • Nose
      Full load of grain, hayloft, the slightly rancid Ledaig character is there but very mitigated, sourdough, eucalyptus, the malt takes time and some water, then comes with more and more fruitiness in driving, pears and kiwi. Later a sack of potatoes, horseradish
    • Taste
      Slowly, smoke and a wine gum sweeten their way, pepper potato chips, mint leaves
    • Finish
      fresh but by no means young, little oak but set, mild smoke and again this summery hay-notes, relatively long

  2. Jake1965Blues did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    For me a great, also because unusual bottling.
    • Nose
      full, sweet aromas, non-volatile and light, but heavy but not intrusive, toffee, warm smoke hovering over it, a hint of fruit, bright red berries, brown sugar
    • Taste
      strong, spicy, full-bodied, smoke rather retronasal to feel, but then clearly, shortbread with butter, alcohol well integrated, warming, vanilla pudding, in the end becomes drier
    • Finish
      Neck long and pleasantly warm, full sweetness prepares the way for the smoke

  3. z-imaging scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very good 20yo+ Ledaig
    • Nose
      Light grassy/hay notes, light peat. Salt & wet stones - very maritime nose, very fresh. Alcohol is noticeable but not too offensive
    • Taste
      Very salty, then sweet, nice Island taste, same level of peatness, strong alcohol, needs a reduction. Again some hay & farm notes, reminds on some bourbon cask matured Kilchomans but this one is more mature and mellowed.
    • Finish
      Fades on sweetness and ashes, some medicinal notes emerge

  4. de Geest scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Slightly grassy in the nose
    Taste more citrus
    Not really 'dirty' from Ledaig
    Very mature little tingling on the tongue which makes the taste hang out.

    Soft mature and fresh Ledaig
    A few drops of water added, which opened slightly

    I like it even better than the 10-year bottling of BiM.

    • Nose
      Wow, that's another interpretation. I would have typed a sherry keg as a finish, but that's a pure bourbon barrel maturation. Sweet and fruity, with brown sugar and a light smoke. Toffee and behind it flashes a bit of the menthol.
    • Taste
      Smoky and strong. The alcohol is well integrated. Vanilla.
    • Finish
      Nice spicy and a little smoke interspersed with nice sweetness.
