  1. Suevia scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    tasted from a 2cl sample from a recently opened bottle.
    Given the pedigree these 1972 Ledaig carry, this is a rather disappointing dram.
    The low strength doesn't support the nice old-school, "industrial" flavours with machine oils, waxyness and no fruits to be found anywhere.

    Might be the result of a dead bottle...

    Compared to the 10 year 17715 this 14 year has more going on, more bite if you like on the nose.
    The peat is more pronounced which follows through to the palate but this is not as sweet as the 10 year, but close, this has more spice, more pepper and is heavier with nice long soothing finish which is the best part.

    Everything you would expect from a Ledaig 1972 cannot be found here. Nice low-key smoke. Even with air, the nose does not develop. Maybe some green aromas are added.
    The taste then continues like the nose. The dram looks good and slack. Everything very round. For me, it's just too round and soft. The 40% are simply not enough here. Departure not available.

    A Brown Label that unfortunately disappoints.
