Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 CWC

- young but good, nice ledaig, surprised !
- Quite disappointing. Although the nose is not too bad, with its Ledaig characteristics, this dram is sharp and thin in the mouth. It feels 'shabby' and cheap, with hardly any finish. I could have known that there is something wrong with this one: a 6 year old with an ABV of 45,8%? The percentage in decimals suggests cask strength. But losing about 20% alcohol in 6 years? It doesn't taste as an old concentrated whisky at all. Seems to me that someone (mistakingly?) pumped water in the cask.
- Just like its predecessor, this Ledaig is very approachable and perfect for those upcoming fish barbecues. Only available at Anverness for around 45 EUR. Thanks for the sample, Peter!
The nose is young and fresh and conjures up farmy scents: a lot of earth, hay and Wellington boots. Creamy, salted butter. Wet stones. And then some wonderful touches of citrus, some melon, vanilla and caramel. The soft peat is perfectly discreet.
The attack is quite peppery. Despite its young age, it carresses the tongue beautifully with a slight bite, quite some ashes and sweet fruit. Very clean. Dangerously quaffable.
The finish is long on lime and mild smoke.
