    Young Ledaig can be very tasty, but that's not about this one, unfortunately...

    Today I'm trying another Ledaig. Different ones I've had in the past I have found to be quite good, and I'm expecting nothing different from this version. Let's see how it tastes.

    Nose starts out quite readily with lemon juice, brine, salt, and smoke, then rubber inner tube, light amounts of iodine, some tropical fruits appearing after a few minutes.

    Palate continues with salt, then pepper, then after the pepper fades there is lemon juice, bonfire smoked bacon, small amount of oils appearing.

    Finish carries on from palate with lemon juice, salt, touch of pepper, fading smoky dryness.

    Very good. One of the best examples of distillery. Saturated, but very soft.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Despite the strength, alcohol is felt much less than in the top ten. Brand "rubber", salt, freshly cut grass
    • Taste
      85 85
      The fragrance continues: rubber, iodine, malt, bonfire
    • Finish
      85 85
      Soft, warm, medium duration. Decaying bonfire, a little metallic aftertaste
