Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1997 HWC

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. Tauti scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    My first whisky that I bought from QoQa. It's a shame you have to buy the blind ...
    They were probably also blind when they bottled. Somebody definitely confused the Ledaig with the Ardbeg barrel - with the better end for me;)

    Seriously: A great South Islay style whisky. Heavy, earthy, lemon with very nice maritime notes.
    • Nose
      Smell the first time: Is that Ardbeg ?! Smoky and peaty, lemon, iodine, vanilla, sea breeze, in the far background the Ledaig cowshed
    • Taste
      Definitely! They dumped Ardbeg in the bottle and sold it as Ledaig. Warm, earthy and salty peat, wonderfully creamy, oily, vanilla, medicinal, lemon, fresh seafood, the alcohol is cleanly integrated.
      It delivers what the nose promises in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Long, earthy, lemon, light oak spice
