  1. wncvirus scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sweet peat elements, citrus fruits, light sherry.
    Taste: Sweet peat smoke, with an added sherry element. Strong flavor. Pretty well combined.
    Rating: 89 | 100 A fairly long finish with a peat profile with some sherry. A very nice whisky.

  2. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    nose on fresh peat, craft paper, characteristic intense sherry, citrus, a little seaweed in return!
    the mouth leaves on the fruity dried and sweet fruit (Oloroso cask), on the peat well in place, very oily, which remains in the glass, the nostrils, which permeates the scents. A little honey, cooked and preserved citrus fruits that last.
    The finish is long, tenacious with peat, seaweed that begins to dry and lemon, a little fleeting spice.
    the next day the glass reveals cold ash and dried fruit.

    This 13yo Ledaig 1st fill PX Sherry bottled for the Whisky Fair in Limburg 2020 comes with great fruit notes around the corner.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Iodine, a little metallic, sea air, walnut, milk chocolate, lots of orange, light sulphur notes, ginger, a hint of vanilla and smoke.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Salt, blood orange, milk chocolate, slightly peppery, oak, smoke in the background.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long finish. Blood orange, pomegranate, walnut, cream, a lot of smoke (ash) and wine notes towards the back. The smoke and fruit notes linger in the mouth for a long time.

  9. LordBellamy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    with water: there is a wet cardboard box and a herbal note, so I would leave out the water here, especially because the alcohol is also not very well integrated

    Conclusion: as usual, a high-quality malt from TWE, the PX barrel does not overpower the malt and is really fun with it.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Nice peat smoke with a slight rubbery note, a little Swalz, plus the fermented grape sweetness of the PX barrel, which harmonizes well with the peat, as the PX influence is clear, but not too strong, the peat goes a little into the iodized salt corner who blindly assessed as a Laphroaig
    • Taste
      88 88
      very oily, light grape sweetness, but it gets stronger and then gives way to the peat, again well balanced here, if the peat nor the sweetness become too strong
    • Finish
      89 89
      long, grapes, honey, apples combined with peat, pebble beach and some oak, which brings liquorice notes
