  1. Maltimizer scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose

      Directly the dry smoke a Ledaig must have! Then immediately caramel fudges, raisins, tobacco and slightly dirty notes.
      Very pleasant fruitiness, with tangerines, peach and lemon zest. The alcohol is really well integrated.

      Dirty! The cowshed is right there! Creamy, dense smoke and caramel, tobacco and yellow fruits again, sherry comes through only slightly, red pepper and a few herbs. I would never have guessed at ü55% blindly.

      Medium length, further creamy and very pleasant. Smoke and sweetness combine excellently, nice fruity note and light herbs at the end

    Great nose, good finish. A whisky to smell. 80 points.
    • Nose
      Oh yes, greasy, cheesy smoke that still hides a bit of a stable scent. I like that yes! It is reminiscent of many a Caol Ila. A fine sweetness and barley are then added.
    • Taste
      We used the word "dirty pig". It fits. I often like that, here it's a bit too one-sided and violent for me. Ash, burnt bacon and charred vanilla. And pepper. Lots of pepper.
    • Finish
      Long and bitter-smoky with great grilled flavors that find their way from the throat to the mouth and nose.

    Ledaig 2011 - 2021, 10 years, 57.1% alc. bottler. Rolf Kaspar GmbH (Back Corbie). Expansion: Refill sherry cask no. 700031

    Nose: Classic Ledaig I think. Straw, wildfire and farm, however, the barn smells of this representative are not so pronounced. A mixture of barbecue party and fruit comes up. On the one hand burning charcoal, on the other hand fruity barbecue sauces and canned peaches. The aromas harmonize wonderfully with each other, everything flows into one another.

    Palate: Less powerful than expected, the alcohol is strongly restrained. Roasted aromas, cold smoke, tobacco. I also find a few dried apricots, bacon and colored peppers, salted nuts and dry cocoa.

    Finish: Medium to long, the fruit aromas show up a little more here. Some tarragon emerges alongside the smoke and sweet fruit flavors.

    Conclusion: A moderate but typical Ledaig, with which one likes to spend more time. 86/100 points (2022)

    I really love Ledaig. This love came after the famous releases of 2004 (10 years old) and 2005 (11 years old). After that, I try not to miss Ledaig in sherry casks above 55%.
    I regret to say that I am surprised by the high ratings for this release.

      At first, very brazen and young. Raw potatoes, men's locker room after training. After a while, a little better - gentle peat, straw, wool, leather, fruity sweetness.
    • Taste
      87 87
      All the same immaturity. It seems that the whisky is simply not ready and could still be in the barrel. Peat, a nasty beer note, a farmhouse (I always love that in peat whisky), then everything is spoiled by a strong sweetness.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium on peat, sweet fruit and pepper.

    Wonderful Ledaig, peculiar smell. On the one hand uncomfortable, at the same time it attracts you. You take another train. Wonderfully soft in the mouth. The smoke rises, is bound by the sweetness of the milk bun taste. Seasoning is added. But the smoke is ultimately the winner in the battle of the elements.
