  4. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Started for health, finished for the rest - a pleasant and rather complex aroma turns into a rather subtle taste with rotten perversions, the finish is a little better, but on the whole is very strange.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, freshly processed board, floral notes, wood dust, wet cardboard, lemon candies, vanilla, herbal tones, mineral tones - plaster, orange juice with mineral water.
    • Taste
      Air, rich, oak, some sweet notes with rottenness, meat notes at the expiration date, grain, sulfur-metallic flavor.
    • Finish
      Light, sweet-sour, slightly astringent, dust, old wood, mixed notes, tablet bitterness.

  5. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I have to say that when I drank this back in 1996-97 I found it very underwhelming. I was expecting great things from it and was pretty disappointed. However, I will concede that my appreciation of whisky back then was not very advanced. Certainly it was this bottle that put me off touching Ledaig for years; However,  the current releases I think are fantastic. Just because this bottle comes from this mythical early production of Ledaig does not mean it is gold - it might be, but there is no guarantee.
