Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 ElD

29 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.36 points

  1. thewhiskeyjug scored this whisky 92 points Member Senior

    Aroma is deeply layered with sweet and earthy notes that scream what it is: sherried Ledaig; Palate is shockingly complex with flavors that run across the map from earthy to sweet to savory and salty; Finish is lovely and I want the smoked cocoa aspect to never end. I’m a big fan of this whisky.

    Highly complex, intense, and tasty above all. It has almost everything that I look for in a smoky malt of a comparable age.

    I'm tempted to give it 91, but let's settle at 90 for now. Might adjust after a few more sessions with it.

    Ledaig in sherry is a win-win situation. Versatile, balanced, perfectly saturated. Bravo!

    a barrel slightly washed with sherry, the acidity goes off scale, we have a shmurdyak talking about this, excuse my language ... I haven't drunk such a bad Ledaig for a long time ... horror (((

    Ledaig on sherry; in many occassions a great combination. And so is this one.

      Bullseye! This is simply great. Immediately the dirty and earthy sherry notes rise from te glass. This is how I love Ledaig.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Really strong and complex. Water is required. Meaty bbq flavors. Spicy sherry notes. Rubber? Probably.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish. Flavors described in the taste continue in the finish. In the end strange enough a bit watery.
