Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1995 DRFS
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.94 points
- Quick impressions: Almost unpeated. Herbal floral and nicely salty taste. amazing style of 90s Ledaig. Unusual for me but surprisingly good. Like this a lot. 90+
- Some will call it 70s, 80s or 90s Ledaig style.
I prefer saying that this is a Tobermory with a 2 weeks finish in a peated barrel...
I mean, nearly no smoke or peat in this one, quite good, fruity, alcohol is well integrated and this dram is really drinkable.
But let's be honest, a 25 Yo Tobermory is around 200€ vs 300€ these days for a Ledaig. And selling a Tobermory, but writing that this is a Ledaig to be able to sell it with higher price tag is clearly dishonnest from my point of view...
This 83 is not the real rate for this, I would say around 88 but with this price tag, and to counter all the fakers rating 92 or more to be able to sell it on secondary market, that's my rate.
- I agree with Dottore and Matthias. Both fit, but the price does not play a role in my rating. Fruity, hardly any smoke, round, tasty. Some dried fruit on the nose. The finish is a bit sour.
Elegant. Do not expect a Ledaig “dirty” nose.
For the 50,6% abv I was expecting a richer taste. Still a very good palate.
- By far one of the weakest "Wu Dram Clan" bottlings.
Unfortunately, nothing of the Ledaig Peat can be tasted.
As was said before me ... A Tobermory with a Ledaig finish is more likely.
Much less alcoholic with water but more acidic and woody in the nose.
In the finish, pepper and chilli have almost disappeared, but more wood can be found.
Unfortunately, the fruitiness has almost disappeared with the addition of water.
Really a shame, I was really looking forward to the older octopus, unfortunately this one disappoints across the board.
The alcohol is not well integrated and rises first in the nose, then mirabelle plums, apricots, sour gooseberries that are not yet ripe, generally there are rather light fruits in the glass, slightly woody in the background
The taste of the dram is quite light, the flow of saliva is stimulated and the cheeks get hotter after a while (chili)
Sour but still fruity, gooseberry, slightly woody / smoky and clearly reminiscent of pepper and chili
