  1. Volanne scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very fishy and dirty Ledaig. I liked it quite a lot.

      That's a dirty one! Manure, cowshed. Something strangely coastal too. A walk in Saint-Jean de Luz on Tuna Day. A mix of grilled fish, and smoked cod liver. And on top of this, some lightly smoked citrus. And guess what? I like it!

      Very pleasant delivery! Thick, creamy, fishy, yummy. reminds me of saka saka a la muambe with dried fish (very popular in Congo).

      Very, very, long, with more smoke now.

  2. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    TASTING NOTE (LMDW): Color: old gold supported. Nose: rich, expressive. A particularly herbaceous and spicy peat (clove, camphor) springs from the glass. It is supported by green licorice and bitter chocolate. Its marine dimension is highlighted by notes of salt and spray. Its fruity register is dominated by kumquat zest and mirabelle plum jam. An acrid smoke is becoming more and more dense. Palate: affirmed, elegant. As for the nose, peat immediately takes possession of the palace. However, she does so with great tact, as she brings with her pumpkin, zucchini flower, spices (ginger) and gentian. Without seeming to touch it, it continues to grow in power providing a lot of dynamism to a smoky end of mouth and ash. Final: saturated with smoke, vegetable and liquorice, the peat has become drier. Notes of straw and cut hay illustrate its sunny character. A light sea and saline breeze comes to refresh the atmosphere, Tobermory village with its colorful houses is in sight and the stills distillery of the eponymous distillery escape the fragrances of a distillate both fruity and peaty.
