  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It is recommend to allow the whisky to develop over 10 mins after the initial taste. Do NOT add water. Just kills everything even by the slightest single drop.

      Malted honey and quaker oaks. Sweet to the nose with floral senses. Cooked pear with barley, fried onions and boiled vegetables.
      Marshmellows, ice cream soda, Pâte à Choux.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet, fruity and luscious lemon scented vanilla cream. Malty and nutty, hint of almond, pecan and oats. Drip lemon juice on peanut butter and this is what it's like.

      Moving from the body onwards to the finish brings rise to pepper, hawthorn, caramel and cinnamon. Herbal yet not harsh at the same time, its rather appealing on the tongue. Ledaig's are known for some nitty gritty harshness with raw peat fired embers and charcoal scented flavours. However this one in particular is minimal and lacking in that department.
      Rather refreshing from the usual norm.

      Medium to long, not overly long. Remains as sweet, spicy and nutty.

    1447) Ledaig, 2007/2019, 11YO, Cask LG719, Highproof, Hidden Spirits

    N- Penang's preserved nutmeg slices, sour, sweet, salty and exotic, then ashy smokes hit the nose with heavy notes of fermented soya. Its dirty, its fishy and its also packed with seashore muddy peat as I would expect nothing less from Ledaig. No sherry influence and the liquid looks pale, but the soya prevail. A non blackish soya sounds like a good marketing too. (92/23)

    P- Umami, baked oyster on shell, savoury sweet with sprinkle of chopped basil and green herbs. Soothing sweetness and spiciness. Semi oily, citrus peels and oak in harmony, and of course the nutmeg too. (91/22)

    F- Medium...may be slightly more, salty-sweet prickly oak, burnt peels smokes, warming. Bespoke dram for a fishing excursion, I just wish its finished dirtier and lasted slightly longer. (87/21)

    B/B- 89/22

    Weighted Rate- 88pt

    Aroma is earthy and spirity, minerally, sweet without a whole lot going on above that; Palate is waxy, fruity, sweet and smoky with some added dry fruity and minerally notes, but it sits light and muted; Finish is a shadow of the palate. Meh… it’s a meh whisky.

    Nose - smell of bonfire on the sea shore, mineral, fresh, slightly acidic.
    Taste - a mild smoky start, smoked seafood, fresh oyster sprinkled with lemon, balanced very pleasant.
    Finish - buttery, medium long, smoke smoke and finally light pepper.
    To sum up - very good ledaig, less barrel impact, for those who like fish climates as found! Personally, I would pour oysters on it :) this is the goal for this week.
