  1. etwa77 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    exciting nose, with Ledaig’s trademark dirty, cowshed peat, but the mouth fails to impress with too much alcohol when tasted undiluted and too much licorice when water is added.. sweet and spicy finish brings back some of the joy

    Winey on the nose,
    Very peppery mouth, good swimmer, needs water.
    Medium to good length.
    Nice yet a bit one-dimensional, not very complex.

  7. antyloop scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    ???? Color: gold

    ???? Aroma: classic powerful smoke from the "warm wiring" inherent in Ledaig... pepper... tobacco... leather... bitter chocolate and deep roasted coffee beans... followed by sweet dried fruit shades and aroma of spices... but the smoke of burnt rubber still dominates over the rest of the aromas... at the end of the nose there are some wine shades and plum candy...

    ???? Taste: powerful taste... "burnt wiring" in taste is smaller than in aroma... tobacco and leather haberdashery elements immediately prevail here... followed by coffee and milk shades lightly sprinkled with chocolate chips...

    ???? Finish: smoky and warm... tobacco-tannin aftertaste slightly tinged with chocolate and peat haze...

    ???? Conclusion: tasty and bright single cask from Ledaig, this magical liquid makes you want to drink for a long time, slowly... and I only have a small sample of 50 ml (((

    ???? Points: 88.5

  8. MrDvorak scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The scent is dominated by rotten old bog algae and creamy orange liqueur. The taste is energetic, but oily and delicate with fish oil, raisins and spices. The finish is long, tannic, fishy-nutty.

    Ledchig is recognizable for its rotten theme, which is simply gorgeous built into the profile of the whisky, very balanced, drinks great.

    RATING: 90pts - | 90 - 92 (A-) → Excellent | - Here the golden pantheon begins.

  10. Totoro scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Sooooo much better than your standard modern sherry maturations.

    The nose flirts with 90 at times. The palate can't hide the fact that it's only 13 years old, but somehow, the finish manages to erase that impression and turn this into a super satisfying dram.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Peaty, yeasty, salty, mineralic, nutty, farmy, herbal, earthy, dry.

      Smoked caramel-and-honey-glazed, salted peanuts?

      A joy on the nose, with or without water, though I slightly prefer it in diluted form.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Powerful, peppery, gingery, nutty, savory, oily, smoky.

      At nearly 60 percent, this definitely needs water to become more palatable.

      When diluted, you get additional roast coffee notes and dark chocolate, so I'd recommend it for sure.

      It's just a tad too simple and youthful / fiery for me to crack 88 on the palate.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Roasted / smoked peanuts again, and the honey / caramel aspect is still going strong as well. Very rich and creamy. Impressive length for an 13-year-old; the Amontillado finish really works wonders here.

  11. Mapl scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Complex and interesting. I give it a better rating than the beginner Ledaig 10. But I don't like the Amontillado finish every day.

  13. ErrHaBe did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    It's not bad, but very closed. Over time it becomes more complex and much darker in appearance, but the woody flavor covers everything. For me personally, smell and taste were a little too one-dimensional, albeit very harmonious in the interplay of sweetness, dryness and bitterness. Nevertheless: who always wants to wait an hour for the distillate to open?
    • Nose
      It's rather closed. First of all, the smoke comes in the form of ash and slightly medicinal solvent. The smoke disappears quickly, however, and gives way to a light, light wood spice with some fruit (apricot or mirabelle plum). Overall, the alcohol is awesome. A little cereal (oatmeal) and a light perfume note. Water brings out the wood more strongly, a little vanilla shows up, the floral and herbal notes of lavender or heather become clearer. Overall still very light, albeit pleasant. After an hour (!), The undiluted whisky becomes significantly darker and herbal. Dark fresh stone fruit.
    • Taste
      Pure taste: sweet, ashy, the alcohol burns on the tongue, becoming spicier, subtle fruit notes (mango). Water brings lighter fruits like the nose, plus a few gummy bears. Overall, there is a nice interplay of sweetness, dryness and a slight bitterness. Not boring, but not very complex either, the wood spice dominates the taste.
    • Finish
      Cold campfire ash, the alcohol tickles and warms, dry and spicy, no fruit; lighter with water and a few floral notes, plus a little mango. The duration is amazing: it stays on the tongue for a really long time.

    The decision between 88 and 89 was extremely difficult.
    • Nose
      88 88
      88.5
      It is very dignified, you hardly notice the percentages despite the relatively young age.
      Still looks very compact.
      That typical Ledaignote after cheesy smoke is there.
      Nice sweetness after sticky caramel, the nosing ends at the back with metal, salt, pepper, iodine.
      Tolerates water and thus opens up more and becomes more accessible.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Great, many flavors alternate here.
      A salty approach, dry bitterness and sweetness move back and forth, but without any spectacle and still with a certain breadth.
      Alcohol was also involved here for the profile.
      Smoky salty caramel and tingling.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Almost medium length.

    But we can also find some nice nuggets in the official Ledaig range. Including this 13 years of age, which benefited from a finish in an Amontillado sherry cask, which is a particularly rich white wine and whose casks are less commonly used than Oloroso or Pedro Ximénez for aging whisky.

    He has a beautiful golden robe. The first nose is very mineral. A candor follows, mixing dried fruits, peat and lemon. The smoke takes precedence and mingles with a winey side. Finally, I pick up notes of barbecue sauce and peanuts.

    The palate is oily and very well balanced. In turn, dark chocolate, peanut butter, toasted and salty notes appear, then caramel. I chase after 59.2% without ever catching up to them. It is eminently greedy.

    The finish is long but rather smooth. First with hints of barbecue sauce, it then evolves towards aromas typical of aging in sherry casks (leather, nuts, coffee) with a hint of smoke.

    This Ledaig is a colossus with feet of clay. On paper, he looks like a monster. But ultimately, it is a single malt of great finesse, with a sherry flavor that we rarely encounter (toasted and salty). A superb discovery.

    Tolerates water and that also makes it better. That special smoke from Ledaig. Plus sour berry fruits. Smoked cheese. Mineral and earthy notes.
    I like it. But I also like Ledaig. Only a little more maturity might suit him.

      full sweetness, the earthy, musty, still there, in the finish that flashes what the typical 'cowshed' notes could be.

  24. DerDennis! scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    The alcohol initially hides a lot, but sulfur and cowshed can still get through easily. I need a lot of water here, then it becomes pleasant, but remains strong and spicy. I like it better than the 18 Sherry

    Nose: Christmas cookies, fuller than 1st and 2nd; fruity, aromatic, appetizing; Chocolate, fresh sweet acid, orange, plums with cinnamon, milk chocolate. All of this is in the foreground for me, the smoke is of course also there, but for me it is rather among the many other flavors, it offers a nice foundation.

    Mouth: fat start; chocolate, spicy, creamy.

    Abrang: ashy, great creamy-nutty mouthfeel - macadamia, cashew, in the back comes generally nut nut, which covers the tongue super long.

    Wonderfully full-bodied, nutty, aromatic.

      Long, phenolic motifs dominate, to which light minerality is added. 22

    Ledaig 13 avalillado,

    You don't make my job easier, do you realize that?
    With your almost 60 °, you do not warn at the first sip and you quickly become undrinkable. With a good spoon of water, you radiate and your peat stirs up the tasty flames of a good old bonfire on the walls of the palace.
    While I only had a few drops left, I dared the sacrilege of mixing you with an Aultmore 12.
    It was the best Foggie Moss drink of my life ...

    There it is again, that rotten note that is characteristic of many Ledaig. It is not as pronounced as many young Bruichladdich, but it is dominant. I do not like it.
    I like the taste much better and the finish is a nice ending.
    Even if the profile doesn't match my preferences, the whisky is well made. Above all, I like that the alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Nose
      Smoke, rotten fruit, peach, banana, sweet, kind of rotten, nuts, slightly grassy
    • Taste
      Thick, soft body, noticeable but pleasant start, some smoke, sweet peach juice, sweet liquorice herrings, a hint of sulfur
    • Finish
      Again smoke and overripe, sweet fruit, with a pleasant herbal note and a little spicy oak, long

    Wow! Man I love these dirty Ledaig bottlings. They are doing something very good up there on Mull! This is why I love to drink whisky.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Typical dirty , earthy and smoky Ledaig nose. There is for sure something happening here. For a not too old Ledaig, flavors are more in the direction of the matured 18y then the more aggressive 10y OB.
    • Taste

      Intense and complex in the mouth. Great warm feeling too. Thick and oily substance. Reminds me of BBQ flavors.
    • Finish

      Long and dry. Ledaig profile remains intact till the very end. In the very end some tobacco popping up. Quite a surprise.

    JACKPOT! Marvelous whisky by Ledaig! I do like sherry, but I don’t like Amontillado sherry to drink as it is. Finish wise (in maturation) it added a beautiful extra dimension and a great layer.
    • Nose
      Give it some time and water. It needs to open up. A delicate smokey nose. Salty and seasoning notes. I get smoked bacon, white grapes, peanuts and caramel. Also the amontillado profile reveals itself. Dried white sultana’s and dates, in a typical sherried body.
    • Taste
      Complex, intense, flavorful. Creamy and thick body. Incredibly layered for a 13yo whisky! I’m impressed. I get tobacco smoke, oranges, salt and mexican spices. Highly enjoyable.
    • Finish
      Very long and enjoyable! Delicate peat smoke. This is where the earthy Ledaig character pushes through the most. Quite a lot of black pepper in the finish. Finish wise it could use quite some water, but in my opinion the rest of the experience would be damaged by that so I would not recommend doing so.

  34. Issie did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Menthol, sweet, grapes, somehow has almost something of white wine, light cold smoke, smoked fish, this time no gum, dried fruit - very intense, a few nuts, currants, cherries, a few strawberries, some earth, herbs and herbal candy, fir resin
    • Taste
      without water: herbal candy, a little honey, lime, wood, orange, a little marzipan, nuts, pepper, smoke and ashes very subtle, but clearly noticeable

  35. RobbievdB scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This Ledaig needs time and quite some water. That releases a nicely balanced and complex whisky with flavors like apples and oranges, caramel, salt, earthy notes and various spices. The Amontillado finish did a good job. I’m not a big Amontillado appreciator but here it works well with the Ledaig profile.

  36. SAND scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Opened one year ago.
    NOSE: Fat, rich nose with engine oil, tar, asphalt, old salty ropes, hints of stock fish, then more secondary notes of dried, sweet fruits. Very nice! (90p)
    TASTE: Quite sweet and fruity. Oily and viscous but less so than the nose hinted at. Sweet sherry fruit notes, engine oil, salt, peat, a little black pepper. Water opens up and slightly mellow the taste, with slightly more fruitiness, orange marmalade, less immediate black pepper but slightly more of it in the aftertaste. A very good Ledaig. (88-89p)
    TOTAL SCORE: 89 points.

    Delicious. Just delicious. Obviously you should not be a smoker, but otherwise a wonderfully pleasant dram for the romantic campfire evening has been achieved.
    • Nose
      Immediately poured and left to rest immediately show plums wrapped in bacon directly from the neat smoky charcoal grill combined with a light lemons. Ten minutes in the glass, as usual with cask strength, add more odors, this time salt, caramel and sulfur, which all but tend to stay in the background and have to be sniffed hard.
    • Taste
      Speckiger, round oak smoke, honey, salt and hazelnuts bring directly a veritable explosion of taste in the oral cavity, which is very easy to drink despite everything. On the way then fat oak, sweet blackberry jam and green, semi-ripe apples noticeable. With water, it is even smoother.
    • Finish
      The prunes wrapped in bacon from the nose come with a good portion of oak smoke and stick to the palate for a long time. The still slightly sour apples and hazelnuts are also there and provide despite the plum sweetness for a pleasant dryness in the mouth.

    Really nice harmony between spirit and cask here. Lots of Ledaig funky, woolen, barnyard, minerality, with also a nice sweetness from the cask. Not too sweet, but a nice desert wine element. Apricots, pear, peach, golden raisins, pineapple. Really good.

    Very beautiful LEDAIG! Hurricane cask fortress framed sherry Amontillado literally sweeps away everything in its path, while it is fascinating beauty and so transparent that perfectly heard the unique basis of whisky from the island MALL. The balance (90!) Is perfect for the age of 13 years, which puts this whisky on a par with more sustained releases, and this makes me put in the end 89! Bravo, Tobermory!
    • Nose
      90 90
      The perfect combination of delicate peat (rubber, astringent smoke, medicine) with beautiful fruit notes: plum wine, lemon jam, ripe apricots, dried apricots, baked apples, sprinkled with powdered sugar and vanilla. The second layer shows an excellent base: broken fermented apples, roasted nuts, iodine shades, minerality. The whole picture is framed by velvet oak. Amazing solid picture !!!
    • Taste
      89 89
      The taste literally explodes, covering the sky with tannins. A lot of oak, juicy yellow fruits, honey shades, vanilla, creamy sweets. Fresh strawberries and forest raspberries are added. All this is literally bathed in molten rubber, coal, drugs.

      88 88
      The finish is woody, textured, pleasant sweetness of the wood of fruit trees, menthol, delicious dry smoke, like after a fruit hookah, some medical plaster and bitterness of viburnum. Slightly inferior in development, but leaves you under the influence of magic ...

    Very interesting whisky, quite brutal I would say. The smoke is quite strong and rather aggressive. When I was nosing it I felt noticeable notes of soot like if I was sitting by an old house chimney. Well, at least now I know what Santa Claus feels before jumping into a chimney :) Water releases a lot of sweet and fruity notes, which are initially hidden by strong ABV. So amontillado finishing did a really good work here. Aftertaste is very long and you can feel the smoke in your mouth even an hour after the actual tasting. This bottling was quite heavily priced (around 80 euros) but even though it's seems to be quite hard to get it now.
    • Nose
      Smoky, farmyard, motor oil, sweet, soot notes, after adding water: pear, brown sugar, grapefruit zest, cold ashes

      Smoke comes along. Very round and balanced. Nice, as the smoke plays around the sherry. Pear grumble.

      Neat the alc is a little agressive on the nose.
      Sweet and a tiny bit sour dark fruit.
      Peaty, heavy smoked ham, mineral.

      Heavy, creamy and oily. Almost breath taking.
      Peaty and very salty.
      Some sweet notes midway, caramel and jelly.
      Earthy wood notes, or maybe it's spicy soil?

      This is a long finish... and a bold one as well.
      Drying and slightly bitter at the very end.

    Amontillado is an Andalusian Sherry, produced in the Montilla region since the 18th century. Without going into detail that I do not control, the Amontillado is produced on a Fino base that will mutate 'abnormally' whose contact with the air is very limited to avoid rapid oxidation. It can also become Amontillado thanks to an additional fortification of alcohol, going from about 13% to 17% and finishing its maturation in old oak barrels. It is thus classified halfway between a Fino and an Olorosso, developing notes of wood, dried fruit and tobacco. The combination of these barrels and the peated whisky produced by the Tobermory distillery works particularly well. This is my taste anyway, as for the port casks in general. www.passionduwhisky.com
    • Nose
      Nose: fat and voluptuous peat as Ledaig can do. Leave him a few minutes to calm his ardor and you will receive tobacco, candied oranges, a minty presence, or pine. Milky caramel. The aeration will introduce the following, namely salt.
    • Taste
      Palate: This peat brings with it a massive dose of salt, it's impressive this instant domination. Overall it's Ledaig in all its splendor, with horses under the hood. Then we will touch something more fat, fruity, always with orange marmalade, a set of small black fruits. It's still very powerful.
    • Finish
      Final: The salt will persist, the peat will be more medicinal, with also elder syrup, berries and other small black fruits. Tobacco smoke. Camphor.

    Very juicy and pushy, it is very young, but attractive with its spontaneity and fervor, if you are not afraid of light, but ubiquitous rubber motifs.

    A nice expression of Ledaig, with plenty of smoke and salt. However, the body is a bit too heavy.

    This is kipper juice, got to be. salt. brine & peat.

     Sweet, fruity with a creamy peat but this is not my thing.

    Water really opens this up, much more peat but also sweeter which raises the score.

    • Nose
      smoke, cold ashes, citrus fruits;
      lime acidity, acrid iodine / salt
    • Taste
      long, spicy. It's a bit brutal at startup. A beautiful complexity develops in short course. We can feel leather (wet), a lot of wood, sawdust. A lot of dried fruits. It's a little oily. The addition of water makes the sweet duality / acidity even more noticeable. I feel a salty sensation in the second part of development.
      The whole remains on austere notes a bit austere. Lemon zest / cereal on the end
    • Finish
      smoke, ashes, fruits and spices. A fine bitterness closes it all
