2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.82 points

  1. davidloosli scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Not my cup of tea, too bitter
    • Nose
      Young, stinky, add a cereal sweetness (Toppaz), fresh mint, rather peaty than smoky, so far so good;
      with water: substantially sweeter, the stink is gone, a hint of lemon
    • Taste
      vegetable flavour, peaty, bitter, green banana, bitter walnut;
      with water: sweeter, fruitier, but still a lot of bitterness
    • Finish
      Now there's smoke, rather dry, unpleasantly woody;
      with water: gets herbal, bitter

  2. Gortheryn scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Fresh and a little metallic, you can literally "smell" the winter day.

    Palate:
    the warm, typical smoke of Lediag is very harmoniously combined with the barrel notes such as oak and a very spicy pepper note.
    Very round and pleasant for 12 years.

    Departure:
    rather short to medium length, the smoke lingers longer.

    Conclusion:
    a beautiful Ledaig, for me almost a bit of the 12 in strong barrel. PLV is perfectly fine at 79.00 CHF.
