Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 RW&W

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.78 points

  1. ThinLizzy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    First impression of the nose: really cool thing, surprisingly harmonious for a young Ledaig, almost too round and maybe a bit too sweet for me. Fortunately, it is still incredibly intense, just beautifully balanced. You rarely have that. And this impression runs harmoniously through the taste to the finish, where you are said goodbye to the Ledaig-typical notes of burnt rubber (I always like bicycle tubes). Great!

    Well, that was something interesting, especially the nose was very changeable here. Smoke and sweetness dominated in the mouth, which seemed very harmonious, but somewhat disappointed the tension built up by the nose. Still flawless and very tasty.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Well, I'm not really surprised with the peated Tobermory now, not many can be so weird and yet harmonious at low age, Ledaig is definitely one of them. Glad to have got it in the glass, I didn't expect it. Fits well in the series of really excellent bottlings from Regensburg.

      Acidic smoke pours out of the glass mainly after the pouring of chemical chemical fire with a little coal firing. As expected, nothing else arrives at first. After a few moments, the smoke declines sharply, but no aromas make it to the foreground, there is nothing at first, but the smoke now develops a stable note. After a while, the nose is clearly stronger and more integrated, with a cold campfire in the foreground, yellow, sugared fruit compote and a strong floral, almost perfumed note. In addition a maritime mineral touch. Some cowshed again with movement. Traces of anise and caraway. Warms up a sweet and sour note that harmonises excellently with the smoke, some clutch wear and Wofasept, more anise, and now also eucalyptus. All of this is not really accurate, the flavors are too special and idiosyncratic.

      Also sweet and sour in the mouth before the sweetness takes over completely. Quite bright, thickened fruit juice with honey. The smoke lies powerfully over it and it hardly dries out to the rear. Anise and licorice are added, it also looks a bit earthy in the end. The alcohol is pleasantly strong, but well integrated, the mouthfeel is dense and oily.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish is surprisingly relatively short for so much smoke, it only warms up briefly, the aromas disappear relatively evenly, the sweetness dominates here and in the end even the smoke quickly disappears, which, by the way, is not ashy here, but more like an active one The fireplace works. Finally, a starch-like sweetness covers the tongue.
