Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2009 ANHA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.71 points

  1. etwa77 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    very enticing, pink-ish colour.. perfumed, flowery-fruity nose on tarry ash.. taste is indeed a bit thin, but keeps it interesting with sour cherries and wild berries and peat.. spicy finish that is unfortunately a bit muddled and cloying.

    despite all the bitching about taste, the nose (and the colour, if that matters) are simply fantastic!

  3. Whisky Genießer scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    This Ledaig in my opinion shoes peat and smoke in combination with a very present sweetness from red berries. The maturation of the red wine amarone is very present. That is not my favorite Cask maturation and unfortunately the whisky is a bit thin for the almost 53%

  4. Anuminas scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The finish in the Amazon barrel dominates and is responsible for a "cherry whisky". Resembles "Whic neck candy wild cherry" with a slight smoke aroma.

      slightly smoky, sour cherries, cherry jam, sweetness, spices (clove, allspice)
    • Finish

      short to medium length, the cherry and smoke are still present
