Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1997 JW

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.60 points

  1. breste scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Relatively disgusting nose. Sour and sulfur. Tasty very tasty. Soft at first, then a little more hearty with salt and caramel sweetness. In the finish, the sulfurous notes come out of the nose again and stay there for a while. A very unusual malt, which certainly deters many.

    I think you either love or hate it or can't drink it. The latter for me. Sulphuric sour sherried baby vomit. Extreme none the less and I am sure it finds its fans, though it ain't me.

    Beautiful whisky! Hate or love it...
    • Nose
      Stinky peat smoke. Very earthy and mouldy, typical for Ledaig. Lots of burnt rubber. Sulphur, gun powder. Some pepper, some salt. A little sweetness hiding in the back.
    • Taste
      Sweet, powerful start. Vanilla, caramel. Dried sherry fruits. Then spicy oak with pepper. Very nice smoke.
    • Finish
      Quite long finish. Malty, oaky, pretty dry. Warm ash lingering on.
