    Oops, he gets great grades, for me something unjustified wise. Well, the price (currently with € 33.80 noted) is a bit more gracious, but much more worth this bottle in my opinion is not.
    • Nose
      My first impression: He is still very young, without me having seen anything other than the 2004 vintage on the etiquette of the sample. Mint, chewing gum, salt, peat in the direction of gauze bandage.
    • Taste
      levitating, do not bring me much here.
    • Finish
      And then comes the whole force of salt, exotic woods, underpinned by phenolic smokiness. But not exactly of extreme sustainability.

    Drank this at a Whiskybase Tasting in Hotel Zee en Duin in Katwijk ZH and purchased 12 bottles right away. Sad to say only 5 are left now.

  5. I_SPEY scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Tasted during the whiskybase/shop nosing and tasting on last monday-evening(30/01/12). A real stunner! The nose is creamy, light medicinal, very lightly peated and dilicious floury!The taste is even better and is rather creamy, floury(read pretty floury!) as well as perfectly balanced with fruits!!The finish is medium long(in my opinion), but very nice. An intriguing dram!!

    Today, 23-02-2013 tasted again - neat - and just great, indeed a great stunner!!!
     

  6. alectron scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Already a great peated whisky, and if price comes into the equation, an absolute winner!
    • Nose
      smoked & air dried ham/prosciutto (schwarzwaelder schinken) and lots of it, a slight green/plant-y/peeled-twig-wood note underneath all that smoke, also some mineral/stone-y notes and oak-y vanilla (85)
    • Taste
      peat and an oily sweetness, nice attack although it doesn't feel like +60%. camphor, some tea notes (black & lapsang ), honey, (88)
    • Finish
      nicely fading out with a nice warmth, more smoke, here the mineral notes come through as well with some granite/stones, also some hay, shortbread, also a tiny fruity note at the back (raspberry jelly maybe ?) (86)

    • Nose
      Coastal and peaty with a lot of zesty freshness. Very light hints of rubber fishing boots. Very clean and focused.
    • Taste
      Punchy yet perfectly quaffable at full strength. Very clean again. Young peat (more than on the nose), lots of lemon and plenty of pepper. Nice evolution towards slightly sweeter lemon notes. Huge focus which also means limited complexity.
    • Finish
      Peaty, clean and very long.

  9. hsmithjr scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Excellent young Ledaig.  Not the most complex whisky on the block, but very enjoyable.  Thanks for the free sample WB Shop!
    • Nose
      Peaty and coastal.  Soft seaweed, then citrus peels.  Sugar cookies. New tires.  Salt water tackle box. 
    • Taste
      Peaty, with strong burning alcohol.  Zesty lemon, then sweet biscuit dough.  White pepper.  Medicinal (iodine mainly).  Sea water. Dried lemons.
    • Finish
      Medium length.  Spicy hot, but sweet.  Peat fades to more citrus. Hints of what I think asphalt would taste like. 

  10. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    This one can be had in the Whiskybase shop for only 35 EUR?! Now that is
    a very friendly price!
    • Nose
      On the nose, which is very clean, I get quite some mineral elements. Wet
      stones on a rocky beach, sweet peat, zesty with grapefruit skins and some
      lemon. Cod oil and rubber garden hose, upholstered with some sweet honey in the
      background. The whole is very soft.
    • Taste
      Despite the high ABV, it is perfectly quaffable without the addition of
      water. Yes, you get a fierce kick in the teeth at first, of course, but once
      you get past the burning sensation, you will get sweet peat again, sea salt and
      lemon.
    • Finish
      The finish is more of the same and last quite long.
