Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2007 BD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.76 points

  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I already had some Ledaig with port ripening, which have been pushed a bit lately. Not without reason, there was not a bad one and this one fits in seamlessly.
    • Nose
      Decent smoke, that's really Heavily Peated, spicy and greasy, including the typical Ledaig cowshed, just a little dirty, and then there is sweet red fruit, raspberry, as slightly artificial as effervescent, quite creamy under the smoke, something Caramel, wet tobacco, the smoke is already playing the first violin in the nose
      After the first sip, clearly milk chocolate in the nose, without smoke I would think of Lumumba again here, also some salt, I do not have the clear cinnamon from my mouth at all
    • Taste
      wow, what a start, intense, sweet, smoke, raspberry, creamy, cinnamon, spicy smoke, a taste explosion, chocolate and salt are added to the cinnamon
      with the second sip even more creamy, the cinnamon has the pants on, super fruity, strawberry is added to the raspberry, beautiful, intense, and very straightforward
    • Finish
      warming, with a lot of smoke, sweet, pleasant, still salt on the tip of the tongue, now also a slight dirty note in the mouth, here too the ashy and spicy smoke dominates

  2. singlewalt! scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    Fantastic combination of the typical smoky Ledaig with wonderfully sweet Portnuancen. For me outstanding 95, my thing!
