  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Maritime and very mellow on melted milk chocolate, the Toblerone, even! Raised a note of white pepper! Superb! On the palate, saline and marked by a subtle sherry, all with a lot of intensity. Chewing texture. (The Toblerone?) Finale very spicy and salty, very lively, which contrasts with the greediness of the nose and mouth.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  2. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    One of those rare Ledaigs which could be easily mistaken for a light Islay malt, as its style is similar to a medium peated Bruichladdich. Fresh, fragrant with mint and a good backbone of oily sweetness, very flowery and aromatic but also with quizzical organic aromas. The usual green vegetable notes and mineral character of this distillery are present, but restrained compared to other bottlings. Its complexity and long evolution in the glass will capture the attention of the seasoned taster: certainly not a “tamed” whisky, not a simplified affair designed to please the easy drinking crowd. Rather, a genuine old fashioned malt which dares to be different and slightly off the beaten path.

    As announced by LMDW, this second malt from the Tobermory distillery, Ledaig ( pronounced "Lea-chaig") is a very confidential whisky, sought after by connoisseurs. This 12-year-old version in second-fill sherry casks is an interesting alternative for discovering the most famous Islay single malts .
    • Nose
      Rich, heady. At first sight, peat is marked by notes of creosote and oscillates between dark chocolate, spray and hydrocarbons (gasoline, fuel). At the second nose, it is softer.
    • Taste
      At once lively and unctuous. Always dominant, peat gradually gives way to exotic fruits (pineapple, mango). Some peppers, pepper and salt then provide a relay full of dynamism and persuasion towards the final.
    • Finish
      Creamy, oily. Places to indulge in a rum-raisin ice cream or an apple and cinnamon pie. Oily, it also evokes a tapenade and its fruity and heady liquor takes us to the slopes of Banyuls.
