  1. M134481 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A bitter taste, accompanied by acid and a layer of vanilla. A rich taste palette, but difficult to find out which notes are included.

    The sour and bitter aftertaste leave my face crooked and are not my perfect whisky.

  2. WillemvdK scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    On first instance, this Ledaig (because it is) throws a burnt plastic aroma "in your face". It's really heavily peated for sure. Charred wood, burnt rubber, and cigarette ash. When you get past this wall of burnt stuff you find a pretty deep, sweet, vanilla aroma. Smoked ham (I find this in my Ledaig's, actually) and some woodspices like cinnamon and a little hint of coconut top it off.

    If you like peat, but feel like something different from the usual Islay peat we all know (and probably love), then this is a fair bet. Great peaty moment. Definitely a quality malt.

    The 'nose' is very fresh, in body and finish things get more stronger. Very nice whisky.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Fresh, fruity and peat, smoke. Citrus, floral, some caramel, ash, apple, vanilla. Full 'nose', nice mixture of fresh sweet and fruity aroma's and (peat)smoke.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Some sal ammoniac, oily structure, thick, pungent, smoke and ash, and sweet, honey, vanilla. Citrus as well, and some peach now. Very full taste.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Pungent and warming, sal ammoniac and licorice, bonfire smoke, and now even some banana. Long finish, again a little floral as well.

  8. Falnor scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Good price, great value. A heavy duty peater with enough citric fruit and vanilla to give it a little depth. However more than this, it's not.
