Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1998 MMcK

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.67 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Cadenhead put out a 19 and 20 year Ledaig, carn mor also and I believe they were all ‘98s. I bought them all, and all were terrific. Good value too.

    This ones got a lot of bourbon influence, but also quite maritime. The Ledaig funkiness is toned down, and peat is on full display.

      Big, bold. Instantly a bold candied lemon peat, iodine, menthol but also softer notes of honey, bubblegum. Definitely some mint. Very coastal - oysters, seashells, seaspray, vanilla, ash.

      Creamy, bold. Good mouthfeel - thick. Honeyed peat, lemons, capers, Brine. Salty. It’s the honeyed mouthfeel that really wins it for me.

      Long. Tarry ropes, salty, drying. Menthol, licorice, vanilla, medicinal notes ramp up, tiger balm maybe, even pulls a page from Laphroaig with some gauze and bandaids. Could trade blows with any 20 year peater from Islay.
