Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1997 CWC
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.54 points
- I like extremes and interesting whiskys. Clearly polarized this whisky, but I stand on the good side :-)
Chocolate and orange dominate first, as well as a nice freshness of mint, in addition to musty smoke with herbs, a little cowshed / Jauche, the chocolate is also joined to toasted nuts, very short egg salad (probably sulfur), interesting with a neat intensity
Surprisingly fruity, sherry, dark fruits, raisins, sweet, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, pleasant smoke, shortly the cowsstall stands out, slightly spicy, peppery, nice intense and a great creamy mouthfeel, slight alcoholic notes
still creamy, nuts, espresso, gives a fresh feeling in the throat, slightly minty, overall there is still a dark fruit note above Edit: after some time still very peppery in the mouth, makes quite a good warm ;-)
- Definitely not for everyone, not even for every smoker or even leather lover. Interesting, idiosyncratic, not a bit complacent and the pepper is quite heavy. I like it. ;-)
From the pharmacist-sample vial immediately a clear smell of pharmacy, from the glass then warmer, darker, farm, warm hay, dry wood, herbs, with a light mint, some water makes it drier and fresher - dried herbs in a wooden box by the sea
it starts already violently, salt liquorice, pepper, camellia, pepper, sweet-bitter tobacco smoke, pepper ... there can be some pure water, until the pepper gives way, the bitter becomes bittersweet, liquorice, dark chocolate ...
long, bittersweet, liquorice, camillan, pepper
- Awesome stuff! Adorable!
Real strange aroma from the beginning. I´m not sure how to describe it. Smells a little like you were on a farm. A mowed meadow where the cut grass has been lying around in the scorching sun for a couple of days. On top of this mouldy aroma there is quite some pepper and light peat. As well as a coastal touch of salt and herbs.
Diluted with some drops of water the whisky becomes more fruity. Surprisingly fresh (citrus) fruits. All underlined by some spicy oak, but not that much.
Starting smooth and creamy with an initial soft bitterness. Even more pepper now. Lots of peat and smoke, a lot more than I would have expected after the nosing. Subtle fruit, more spicy oak now instead. Reserved sherry. Very well balanced.
The mouldy touch is present at all time.
Pretty long finish. Cold ash and a little bitterness lingering on. And of course the moulder.
- Typical Ledaig. Peated with a lot of light citrus notes.
Young and fresh but no new make. A metallic hint that`s disturbing me seems to go away after a while.
