Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 CWL

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.07 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Not your most complex whisky. Even a tad dull if you ask me, given the metallic and vomit notes. No, this should have been matured a bit longer.
    • Nose
      Even blind this is unmistakably a Ledaig... Wet peat, farm (horse stable), bacon and bbq smoke, embers. Further, walnut and marzipan, some grass and mint, ultra sharp lime and only a little wood influence (sawdust). But what's (most) damaging: it's quity metallic and makes me think of vomit.
    • Taste
      It's not as in your face as you would expect. It's a cask strength, but feels like a 43%. The smoky, farmy and meaty influence is much lower, the barley and grass become a little more influential. The nutty side is almost absent. Instead, there is this metallic young feel. Too bad, as it becomes rather boring. 
    • Finish
      Well yeah, lemon zest, only a little spice (pepper), and else the combination of boggy peat, farm and malt.

  6. Rom scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    The typical peat of Ledaig, well smoked and citrus with a very slight farmer side. Greasy texture, very smoky, nice size, lemon. Very long finish on lemon smoke.

  7. Ivynor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A bit of "everything", but a little too young, as if the barrel had only partially worked. Product however acceptable.
    • Nose
      butter cream, white wine, iodine, rather in the freshness of the first nose, before gradually losing and leaving only the alcohol, with some heaviness.
    • Taste
      Rather fat, a little sweet, on medicinal plants, syrup for cough, iodine and earth, some cold tobacco.
    • Finish
      Short, on peat, plants and a little sugar

  8. tomy63 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    transparent color, nose on peat, lemon, a side of life, very young, a little medicinal, wax. Mouth on the same aromatic, well integrated alcohol. Pretty good length. But it is much younger than the other 2005 Ledaig
