Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 10-year-old
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.71 points
- Quite nicely peated whisky. Enjoyable.
I love this right from the first whiff. Smoky funk, everything good about beach smell.
Earthy, smoky malt. Pepper.
Smoky pepper, brine.
- Ledaig 10 years, original bottling, 46.3% alc.
(Isle of Mull, Scotland) Tobermory distillery
Nose: smoke, but not medically, but rather after cold campfire, ashes. In addition a Stiefmief, behind a floral sweetness. Somehow, as if bright fruits with vanilla pods in brine have been inserted. Delicious? Definitely interesting.
Palate: Smoky dry, peppery without pungency, some oak, maybe olives, much less taste than the nose would suggest.
Finish: Entertaining, smoky, small afterburner in the throat. From the pepper here again no trace.
Conclusion: Interestingly paints, so to my knowledge since 2012 on the market. The alcohol content was increased to the current level. The whisky is very changeable and an interesting alternative to the peat monsters of Islay. I did not get really warm with him, because there are nicer independent bottlings. As a standard but okay, I would wish him more with a few turns more.
