    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.

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. Brinker 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.
