  1. Vince scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    On the nose I would have sworn Islay. On the palate I could have sworn a youngish Caol Ila, with the brine, campfire and olives profile. Ideal with Sushi.
    Not sure what "Ideal Strength" actually means.

    Typical Ledaig, with its nice, farmy notes. Very drinkable, no overwhelming alcohol. Very pleasant.

      Clearly some peat, fake leather, very farmy, typical Ledaig nose. Quite some alcohol. Cheesy, hamka's. Roasted meat, bacon. Some clear fruits as well, citrus.
    • Taste
      86 86
      At first sal ammoniac, licorice. Pretty smooth now, only a little tingling mouthfeel. Hay, farmy, earthy notes. Creamy.
    • Finish

      Still smooth, sal ammoniac, licorice, hay, farmy. Pretty long, some smoke, ash, middle long.

    It is okay. My review (https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/09/22/eine-beutel-voll-ledaig/ (german)) may sound worse than it actually is. You can drink it. Somewhere around the campfire after three beers, that's sure to be fun. Otherwise I don't need a second glass of it, tank you.

  7. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    prefer it to the 2011/2020 Ch7 Islay. Ledaig is king of peat again. 7/10
    • Nose
      great maturity at 10. oysters, electronics, crackers, lemon sherbet, a bit of sweetness from the cask. noses slightly more like the old regime of ledaig, with a touch of farminess.
    • Taste
      very lively, punchy, but reduced to a good strength: freshly squeezed lemons, smoked lemons and salt, bit of peanut brittle, developing a slight pithy bitterness. goes long with lots of lemon oil, and wee hints of seafood.

  8. maltandgrains scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A great, but less complex dram.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Peaty, but quite sweet and incredibly smooth.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Quite a punchy peat, light and rubbery mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium-long. A slightly medicinal taste, with some woody bitterness. It leaves your mouth with a fair amount of both rubbery taste and feel.
