Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1995 WN

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.50 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A single malt that grows with each sip. I suspect this isn't a crowd pleaser, but it has much to offer and discover.
    • Nose
      More Tobermory than Ledaig, this is fresh yet rather dirty, musty and with a tinge of copper coins. And a nice minerality to boot. Also damp leaves and reminiscent of a somewhat yeasty dunnage warehouse. It has an uncharacteristic waxy quality, as well as a tinge of fermented apples, pears, melted butter and a whiff of eucalyptus.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. A rather chalky and earthy arrival with a nice herbal influence and some mint. As subdued as the peat was on the nose, it certainly is noticeable here—but very subtle still. A hint of cherry pit and some pine needles. There's a fruity veneer of bitter lemon zest, orange rind and even some pink grapefruit.
    • Finish
      Soft spices and more vibrant fruits.

  2. Hvdree scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    ledaig because of the peat-level, but in all other aspects this is a typical tobermory, the freshness, the herbal notes, dry earth, mint leaves, drained cauliflower water. after all these years this stays really close to the true tobermory spirit ( which i like.. )
    without the peat it does very much remind me of this one:
