  1. yellowcake scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Seldom has a whisky met my expectations like this. You can literally "guess" the taste of the color and name. A beautiful Ledaig who convinced me with its smoke and - yes, really - with its color.
    • Nose
      Of course, the smoke is dominant, but not unpleasant and nicely balanced with the alcohol, so not sharp and no false notes. It is followed by a slight sweetness that you will recognize once you get used to the smoke.
    • Taste
      intense, the smoke hangs over everything, pleasant, then a bit peppery notes, campfire and a bit medicinal, the alcohol is well integrated
    • Finish
      medium to long, smoke of course, but now I might also recognize a few maritime notes, dashi, seaweed

    • Nose
      I remember when the first modern edition of the 10Y came out and the bulk of the hobbyist had little regard for it...I knew this little one had potential. Today, this whisky remains one of the safe bets in terms of peated whisky. It's still very oily, on the lemon, the wood fire extinguished. It's a sensation of salt, of bacon. With the opening, the texture will be more buttery, with an addition of orange, vanilla, milky and sweet cereals.
    • Taste
      Beautiful diffusion of flavors, due to a perfect integration of alcohol. The smoky salty mix works wonders. We are still on this extinguished wood fire, smoked bacon, barbecue. This whisky is more eaten than drunk. The lemony / orange touch can be appreciated, with further this contribution of milky cereals, vanilla. In short, a very beautiful Ledaig, a real pleasure to taste, ideal balance.
    • Finish
      Super long finish over everything that stood out earlier. A frank whisky, but not nag for all that. It is still findable at less than 80€, which is a reasonable price for the time.

      Directly the dry smoke that a Ledaig must have! Then immediately sweet muesli with lemons and tangerines, salty caramel and slightly dirty notes.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Really thick smoke and the dirty note is immediately there, clear cowshed and black pepper, lemon peel, leather and sweet herb drops
    • Finish
      88 88
      Dry, long and spicy, further thick smoke and pepper, tart and sweet at the end
