    I love these recent bottlings of Ledaigs in Sherry casks.
    This is certainly a nice bottling and good value for about 50 Euro. However the bottlings by Berry Brothers and Dewar Rattray in the last years were better than this one.
    Still a very enjoyable dram which I would recommend.
    Revisited: The massive sweetness that comes from the sherry cask is really nice and combines so well with the peated basic character. 89 Points, this went up from my first rating and deserves it. (unfortunately not available for a price of 50 bucks any more :(  )

    It`s like leaving the flue closed on your fireplace.  Wonderful body and the sherry adds a delicious undertone, barely creeping through the massive smoke.  Serge mentions some of these young sherried Ledaigs are mimicking Ardbeg character, and I`m pretty sure this is one of them.

  5. Ralph Hiltrup did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    "Ledaig is the peated spirit made at Tobermory distillery on the Isle of

    Mull. This feisty young cask strength whippersnapper shows plenty of

    muscle and exhibits flavours of bonfires, honey and fruit cake thanks to

    maturation in a sherry cask. A massive hit at 2012`s TWE Whisky Show."
