    The aroma is bright and warm. Pastry, vanilla, kurabier, sweet citrus fruits, monpasier. Smoke, medical tourniquet, tobacco notes, spicy spices.
    The taste is bright, sweet. Fruity notes, cocoa, smoke, burnt rubber, soot, herbaceousness, spicy spices, pepper.
    The finish is bright and sweet. Citrus, cocoa, smoke, peat theme.

    Conclusion: Bright, but without zest, with a standard palette of flavors and aromas. Not very comfortable for consumption.

    Farmy, bit of smoked meat, some smoke, peat, bit is misses some oomphf. On taste you have a bit of rubber and typical Tobermory vegetable taste. Finish is decent. Good Ledaig, but not stellar

  8. vlad78 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A bit aggressive for me, but quite a good whisky. Especially in chilly autumn weather.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Apricots and yellow apples, bunches of grapes, and all this lies in the immediate vicinity of the dying fire. However, there are also technical notes, the smoke as a whole is dry, but there is also some dampness.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sweet, with yellow fruits and berries, with a predominance of smoke that clogs the throat, bright and fiery.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Smoky tones give way to sweetness, with a medium duration.

    • Taste
      86 86
      Punchy, oily, creamy, subtle sweetness, heavy peat and smoke, little citric, fruity, spices, ginger, pepper, more rubbery notes, little herbal
