Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 12-year-old GM

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not much too fault here. Balanced, enough complexity and definitely Ledaig.
    • Nose
      Hints of sauerkraut and ripe banana, with a whiff of seaweed, but also vibrant citrus fruits and vanilla. A touch of sweet cookie dough as well. Oh, and of course pretty smoky. Think charcoal and wood smoke. The balance is top notch.
    • Taste
      Salty with hints of olive brine, but also fudge and milk chocolate. Plenty of peat smoke, as well as a touch of tar and licorice. Hints of vanilla and banana, and a subtle spiciness (nutmeg and pepper). Nice creamy mouthfeel too.
    • Finish
      Lingering ashes and lime.

    I had the opportunity to in-depth immersion in this release of my favorite distillery in the form of several approaches from the moment the bottle is uncorked until it washed off in the glasses of the last drops. At the beginning manifested an obsessive tartar sulfur in the scent, the taste looked empty. However, the second event of the whisky became better, sulfur disappeared, and in the future remained a pleasant, very pink bar option.
    • Nose
      Light, peat, fried greasy salty fish, notes of sulfur, salty, rubbing foam, bread toast, boiled egg, meat, with time appear citrus notes, lemon lollipops, husky lime, shed with cattle (wool and bacon), earthy, medical nuances, industrial gases, sprouted grains, apricot peppermint, apple jelly, honey and banana notes.
    • Taste
      Oily, ash, pepper, industrial, cigarette ash, cigar leaves, rubber, nuts.
    • Finish
      Pepper, peat, slightly sweetish, warming, again tobacco leaf, cashew nuts, apricot, banana, rubber, long enough.

  4. The Macallan scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    Doable, but not my cup of tea
    • Nose
      Medicinal, briny, smoky, fruity (citrus)
    • Taste
      Briny, malty, slightly sweet, fruity
    • Finish
      Salty/smoky, minerals in the back
