Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 BD

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.30 points

  1. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Not overly complex, little additive but apparently well subtractive maturation, nothing more metallic, no bad alcohol involved, but this beautiful sweet smoked bacon from nose to finish, just a delicious, round, consistent young bourbon smoker
    • Nose
      Caramelized bacon, bourbon vanilla and smoke in honey
    • Taste
      Strong ashen smoky sweet, slightly citrus fruit, round and yummy
    • Finish
      Medium to long, little oak but neat smoke

  2. Alois scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Sweetness and smoke...thats a Combi!
    • Nose
      Blind tasting:

      Smoky sweet. Moldy. 
    • Taste
      Smoke with Sulfur. Charcoil. 
    • Finish
      Middle with bitterness and sweetness...some smoke

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Mjam, matured well for 9 years, nothing metallic, nothing pungent, neat fat. Ledaig is always worth a trip.
    • Nose
      Bodden water, smoked bacon, some medicine, cereal sweetness
    • Taste
      very sweet and creamy, the smoke is pleasant and well integrated, lightly roasted crust, lots of cereal sweetness ...
    • Finish
      long, here come again strong smoke, grassy, ​​bitter notes and neat salt

  4. Kimba scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Great thing. Even if he does not have the draft yet, and he is not a miracle of complexity either, but he makes his wet again by his delicious. Lecköör .. 88 points :)
    • Nose
      Wonderful nice smoky nose. Very pleasant. There is no note that bothers you. Beautiful bacon is in the air. The 52.2% are well integrated. Great.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. The 52.2% are there immediately but they do not bother. It does not need water for me. He is pleasantly sweet, vanilla is there and bright grapes. The bacon lays something between the grapes and the vanilla. Nice barrel. Delicious.
    • Finish
      The sweet continues to pull through. The smoke is decreasing .. sounds nice!
