    If you are a peat head and want to widen your horizon beyond Islay, this Single Malt is waiting to be discovered! At first glance, Ledaig 10 (peated Tobermory) is very reminiscent of Islay malts - but it's less sweet and distinctly different. A complex bouquet of smoked ham, sea salt, citrus fruits and both floral and savory notes hides behind intense, mineral peatiness. The arrival is strong, fresh and quite dry, followed by burned licorice, aniseed and loads of white pepper. Distant maritime notes and hints of mint crown the substantial finish. A first-class malt!

  2. PaulDvorak scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Sea, warm, with the aroma of fish oil, smoked citrus, seaweed and cream, the taste is dry, with light bitterness, with notes of smoked mackerel with bread, honey and a creamy dessert with vanilla, medium-long finish, slightly dries, with nuances of iodine, smoked fish and dusty rags.
    I was pleasantly surprised, the aroma is generally direct to me, a creamy-malt sweet with hints of peat and sea. Dry straight perfect in moderation. For a decade, but for such a price - this is a bomb.

  3. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Pretty straightforward mildly peated dram, nothing fancy but an OK dram.Tasted in a tasting with line-up of WB ID's 52097, 62558, 69539, 18211, 66055, in that order. 
    • Nose
      Rubbery (the rubber bands the mailman uses - Dutch: postelastiek), peaty, oily (fish oil), pinch of salt. Fresh; pretty straightforward. 
    • Taste
      Quite peaty, a bit oily, citrusy; lemon marmalade. 
    • Finish
      Lemon and apricot marmalade continuing with peatiness, sweeter than on the palate. At the roof of the mouth: smoke of an open fire. 

  4. Othorion scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Great drops for the price!
    • Nose
      Citrus fruits, campfire, a hint of caramel, a quick thought of engine oil, malt, lemon cake
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet caramel, of course, smoke, but harmoniously integrated, a little vanilla, a little orange, some salt,
    • Finish
      long, slightly warming, black pepper, a little chili, a lot of smoke,

    A delicious smokehouse, perhaps, deserves respect. Would take a bottle of smoky dry taste.

  10. Jabarkas scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    A great peated version of Tobermory. Easier to drink than Ardbeg Ten. But slightly less interesting.
    • Nose
      Peat, sourness, slightly chemical, maritime notes.
    • Taste
      Nice mild combination of sweet and peat. Honey.
    • Finish
      Short peat finish. In here it should do slightly better.
