    The really felt like it was the raw essence of Ledaig, young, herbal, smoky and with little cask influence. Lovely whisky, hopefully we can keep this one a secret for a while longer.
    • Nose
      Vegetal peat. Lots of damp earthy notes. This is characteristic in a Ledaig but here's it's particularly apparent. Mulch. Wet Grass. Wet campfire. Some light floral notes coming through and just a hint of lavender. Green apples. Salty caramel lingers in the background.
    • Taste
      More vegetal peat. Bitter mineral notes and brine. Slight bitter wood note. Still some good grassy and earthy notes here, but with less of that damp character. Vanilla cream rounds it off.
    • Finish
      Bitter wood. Mineral peat. Ash. Pine cones. Light whiffs of vanilla and apple. 

  3. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A good one, feels older than 7 years in my opinon. My first ledaig ever but definitely not the last. Thanks to "Tothemorrow" for the sample.

    (Rating interval 81-85)
    • Nose
      Peat and grass, wet grass, smoke after water on an open fire. Also notes of salty melted butter and soil.
    • Taste
      Light texture, peat smoked licorice, black pepper and lemon rind. Good combination of bitter, sour and salt on the delivery.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering with citrus, peat and smoked wood with peppery sesame oil.

  5. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Despite the rather
    modest ABV, this is a powerful, good and dirty Ledaig.
    • Nose
      The nose of this
      Ledaig is rather dirty (which is not a problem, or course). Loads of smoked
      fish and peat. Mildly sour. The fruit is limited to lemon with a hint of Granny
      Smith. Fairly straightforward, but pleasant enough.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is
      fairly sweet and mildly creamy. The peat is loud and offers up a bit of a farmy
      touch. Hay and heather. Good continuation of the nose.
    • Finish
      The warm finish is
      pretty long.
