Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1994 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Forgot to score this one. I agree with scotchguyto, it’s likely a tobermory, as there is no peat to speak of. It seems the early to mid 90s were a weird time for Tobermory because what I’ve had has been all over the map. On the flip side of that everything I’ve had distilled from 1997 on has been much more consistent. That said, even though it’s likely mislabeled, it’s a very solid drinker, and was downright cheap when it was available.

    Ledaig? If there's peat in there it disappeared sometime ago. This seems like a mislabelled Tobermory cask to me, but a quite pretty one at that bottled for Co-Op wines & Spirits in Alberta.

      Apple jam, butter and warm baked oak. There's a subtle highland coastal quality to this; warm sandy beaches and coastal breezes. Sweets and some heat, maybe a little warm earthy notes too; but it's quite good. Maybe a little birch sap, and some grassyness.

      Oooh, this is interesting. White tea and a touch of fresh bay leaf too, rich sweetness dominates the palate. I think i even get a touch of mint in there with some more coastal notes. Maybe a touch of Demerra sugar almost; there's a sourness here with a sweet following I cant quite place like a spice cake but woodier.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium in length. Sharp as all get out though, starts off with malty sharpness; sweet and spicy bitter almond meets something like minty custard. Then it rolls that mint into camphor and shoe leather. Finishing up with some pepper, walnut skins and honey covered playground sand.
