  1. Trikikki scored this whisky 95 points Newbie

    Excellent selection from the iconic Tobermory distillery. 10 years in bourbon casks make of this single malt scotch whisky an amazing experience at both nose and mouth. Great product.

  2. pasqualgram did not rate this whisky Newbie

    Peaty whisky with a nice bright straw yellow color, very complex and elegant nose where the peaty notes are very evident. Very aggressive in the mouth, especially at the first taste only to be more pleasant later on.
    Finally, after having swallowed, citrus and spice notes return, which bind perfectly with the peaty and brackish ones.

    An incredible selection of Ledaig cask strenght (60.8% Abv) by Detti&Spiriti.

  4. Mane140486 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    An amazing single cask, super drinkable despite the high ABV grade, a very balanced Ledaig full of flavors.

      Very marine, algae, brackish hints, evident burnt peat, with hints of ash and soot. Sweet apple, cedar and pepper.

      The alcohol is not felt, only slightly in the throat despite the gradation. Very oily, consistent with the nose, but the sweet and fruity part is more evident with a beautiful note of vanilla that comes out. Still apple, vanilla apple pie, but then hints of smoked fish, salt, sea water, and a beautiful note of embers emerge. Very good and balanced despite the young age and the ABV.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Burnt peat, acrid, dirty, very long, then candied citron, vanilla sugar and pepper
