  1. stefsel111 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Just like his sistercask 900008 this young Ledaig needs some water to get fully flavored.

    This one needs it more then the 900008

    To me it was a very nice surprise
    Just adapt and enjoy!

    Transferring previous Note (2012.01.26) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      a lot of peat/smoke/ash (smoked ham, cold wood ash), some pear &
      apple esters, (freshly) tanned (bright) leather, dry fresh oak planks,
      hay/animal stable, some chalk, plastic/rubber in the sun o, (82)
      W water: more mineral, also more pear & (older) wood (84)
    • Taste
      nice
      peaty attack, less aggressive than the % suggest, vanilla, and again
      this plastic/rubber in the sun flavour - which I don`t find unpleasant,
      just peculiar (83)
      W water: slightly sweeter, but also more malty & farmy, some (white) chocolate in the back. (84)
    • Finish
      more long lasting peat, cold smoke, malt, pears again, some vanilla more towards vanilla-syrup here, a touch of leather. (86)
      W water: looses a bit in length, but makes up for it in coming together a bit better. (86)

  3. ALouis scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Too young, if you want to die.....
    • Nose
      too young, spirit, mashy and apple
    • Taste
      too young also, spirit, mashy and apple....
    • Finish
      Long
