  1. DerDennis! scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very complex nose, but with the typical Kuhstallgeruch of Ledaig, through which one must first fight through.
    On the palate, I find almost everything again, which I've already imagined smelling.
    The finish is a bit too short, but quite pleasant.

      Behind the smoke comes the cowshed, but also dark fruits, tobacco, leather, sherry, dark chocolate, malt, maggi, maple syrup, pepper, smoked ham

    Musty, rubber, a gym after the holidays
    Boah is really just for hardcore fans

  8. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The peat profile remains interesting, and I would happily sip a glass of this on winter (okay, and also on autumn) nights, but for a higher score, it would have to boast a better body. It's too thin overall, which really puts a damper on things.
