Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2007 SV

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.42 points

  1. theograph scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Somehow supple, creamy sweet and vinous, then strong smoky, slightly salty and with a sea breeze and finally the well-known and expected Kuhstallgeruch ... For me personally a nice Ledaig with an extraordinary finish! PLV: 8/10 (89 / 90P.)
    • Nose
      Salt / coast, vinous aromas paired with a rich portion of smoke, well-known smell of farmhouse tobacco, greasy leather, oriental spices (saffron, curry, cinnamon, coriander), more sweet smoke with wine notes, dried grapes, creamy / creamy;
    • Taste
      Creamy sweet, vinous and smoke-rich, bitter notes from the oak, then marked youthful ginger and pepper, salt notes, wet stones, red fruit, greasy leather, again sweet and vinous; astringent / dry!
    • Finish
      Bitter (oak), salt and wet stones (tingling), smoke full, cowshed / manure; less wine notes than in the nose and on the palate!

    So the color does not reveal that he had a finish in the Bordeaux barrel. It actually looks like a whisky from the bourbon barrel. I'll leave that for a few minutes too. The nose is rather dry. Implied fruits and spices. The smoke is about as strong as the Sherry Signatory (WID: 96289), but it seems, due to its weaker barrel influence, different or purer. In the mouth he is not as pure drinkable as the sherry signatory or acts more alcoholic. He is much better with water. Pretty creamy. Then come wine aromas and it gets dry. But he does not pick me up so completely. And I do not really know why.
    He is not bad. But he can not compete with the 18er OA and the Sherry Signatory.

    One of the best Ledaig with this age I tastet until now. Itś a typical Ledaig- but the red wine finish is the very special thing. Its a creamy, Full body Whisky with a exzellent price.

    Although the finish was done in a French Bordeaux wine cask, the distillery character of Ledaig is unmistakable. Smoke and peat, wonderfully paired with a creamy vanilla sweetness and fruity wine aromas. Aromatic in the nose, intense and very strong on the palate. Nevertheless, this pleasantly complex and not too young Ledaig is perfect to be enjoyed neat. Something for the cold evenings in front of a logfire.
    • Nose
      Fruity on the nose with delicate red wine aroma, beautifully mixed with peat smoke and a touch of ash. Notes of creamy vanilla and caramel arrive nicely wrapped in sweet smoke, wine grapes and an appealing mix of spices - coriander, juniper and white pepper. A hint of maritime  notes with a touch of tobacco leaves in the background.
    • Taste
      Bold and intense on the palate with peat smoke, vanilla sweetness, malty notes and honey. This is accompanied by a warming spiciness of black pepper, ginger and nutmeg. Lingering red grapes mixed with a hint of fresh lemon and dry notes of oak and allspice towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, pleasantly warming and sweet with honey, grapes and fudge. Again slightly smoky with a hint of salt and a whiff of bitter dry oak on the tail.

      With water: There's almost no change on the nose when a splash of water is added. The delicate sweetness and smokiness both remain stable. On the palate, however, the sweet and fruity notes are almost tamed while spicy flavours - pepper, allspice and cloves - take over along with earthy peat. The finish is still long, warm and creamy with malty notes, dry oak and a hint of red grapes.

  8. Tomtom72 scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    A really outstanding stuff! The decanter is really beautiful.

    The nose is fresh, a little smoky. A lot of fruit, oils, cake and cherrys, followed by nice red wine notes.

    The body is outstanding! A lot of fine hints, sweetness, Black cherry followed by a smoke explosion. Wha-ha!

    Finish is peppery,smoky and komplex.

    The price for this malt is very good! Not 140€ as sold on eBay, but under 100€ is cheap!

    Absolutely recommended!

    Really boring Ledaig. The nose is of a new make and after that it does not get much better. The taste is wild and unbalanced, bitter. I didnt like it at all.
