    N: buttery, lemon, nori sheets, white wine, oily soft peat, cold ash, lime juice, Would guess Caol Ila from the nose alone.
    T: oily, oysters, lemon, butter, ashy, creamy, vanilla
    F: mentol, lemon butter, capers and wet ash, long with brown sugar notes Long. Creamy. Incredible.

    90/100

    This bottle put Ledaig firmly on my radar. Love the profile and much like an older Caol Ila. Cadenhead sure have a way finding the gems. Great value too, which is saying something these days.

    Whisky Fun by Serge:

    Ledaig 19 yo 1997/2016 (53.9%, Cadenhead, Single Cask, bourbon hogshead, 252 bottles) Five stars Colour: straw. Nose: more maturity in this one, and yet no Ledaiggy off-notes, rather some kind of bold, rather liqueury, and pretty herbal arrival, with some sage, parsley, moss, humus, then kelp, floated wood, oysters, and kippers. A forest near the Atlantic, I’d say. Very nice, and rather intriguing. With water: sea breeze, a walk on the beach (that wouldn’t be Ibiza, rather Machir), tissues, and Altoids. Both were kept in the very same pocket for years. Mouth (neat): Cadenhead are often having singular casks, and after all that’s the whole point of bottling single casks, isn’t it. Beautiful resinous/sappy style, then lemons and moss, then a very brine-y smokiness with also ashes and notes of this bizarre, yet sometimes fantastic wine they have in Greece, retsina. With water: we’re going towards Loire wines, I mean the drier ones. Ideas of a proper old Muscadet – nah of course not the cheap junk they have in supermarkets. Finish: medium, and very costal. Comments: on oysters, on oysters! SGP:366 - 90 points.

  9. schero scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Car repair shop in the purest form, dirty peat smoke, brackish sea air, engine oil, dry strawberries
    • Taste
      Dirty smoke, peppery and oily mouthfeel, salty, dry
    • Finish
      Dry but suddenly citrus-rich finish, smoke
