  4. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This is the bottle with the cool retro transfer/hologram label.

    N: What’s this,.. a Cognac or sherry influence? It’s very nutty and chocolatey with a toffee/biscuit/vegetal-herbal complexity. The smokiness is near maple-sweet smoked ham, Hornby engines and a hint of [chestnut] wood thrown in. Some of the cask makeup is PX - am I right?
    T: Oh, this takes me back to my first Laphroaig experiences [initially], delivering a more biscuity and herbal course thereafter. The cask influence appears deliberate yet tempered, allowing for a fair balance. Some bourbon cask action peeks through, but this consolidated recipe isn’t so quickly broken down.
    F: Lots to ponder on from that intense delivery, one that benefits from a little water, but not too much. A balanced, cask-contents-sweet herbal finish with wispy cacao.
    C: Cleverly concocted, modern [if not exactly futuristic], single malt that works a treat. Compliments to Billy

    Scores a B

  5. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This Ledaig stands for one of the better modern day whiskies the industry has to offer presently.
    • Nose
      Voluptuous notes of peat, yet not as intense as I expect from Ledaig. Subtle notes of barbecued bacon, burlap and salty sea air. However, it has a lovely sweetness as well. Cherry syrup comes to mind, maybe some milk chocolate. And finally some of that sauerkraut that always seems to signify Ledaig to me.
    • Taste
      Lots of peat, quite a bit of tar and some soot as well. There’s a subtle sweetness, leading into a touch of menthol and some meaty, smoky barbecue notes, followed by demerara sugar. A good salinity adds a layer of complexity.
    • Finish
      Cocoa powder and medicinal peat. Very long.
