Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1998 GM

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.60 points

  1. TheWhiskyAgent scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    Interesting farmy nose, not quite as intense as Kilchoman. Cow stable, straw and hay. A little cold smoke (just faint), some ham, pears and unripe pineapples. I also find a whiff of salty Seabreeze by the ocean (could this be on the Island of Mull?). Taste: WOW!!! Ever had a farm in your mouth? Incredible. Me like… Quite unique profile. Very smooth but a little thin. Some wet wood, cold smoke and bonfire ashes. Any fruits you ask? Well…Gooseberries! Water tones down the nose a lot, some citrus notes come out though. On the palate we get more smoke. A coal pile and more cold ashes. Not many animals left but interestingly the texture gets chewy! Definitely worth exploring this with water. Ends medium long and a little dry, nice lingering aftertaste of musty warehouse. Well done Gordon. Well done McPhail. A Whisky that will give you a new experience every time…

    Tasted 19/12/2015 in a tasting with a Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice line-up.
    • Nose
      Nicely peated with hints of rubber. Fresh fruit (green apple, pear) and beeswax. 
    • Taste
      Very nice! Surprisingly sweet (marzipan) and nicely balanced with a tobacco peatiness. It also has something citrussy (lime). 
    • Finish
      Quite long and lingering in which the tastes of the palate continue. At the end there's a faint hint of menthol.

    This is not really my style of whisky, but it is one of the better Ledaig expressions I have drunk so far. The typical character of the Tobermory comes through more powerfully here and the smoke has dropped a bit further into the background.

    • Nose
      A sweet, slightly sour and fresh whisky with notes of soft smoke, green apple, currants, pineapple, dried apricot, a hint of rubber, minerals, earthy notes, banana, hint of oak, butter, honey, beeswax, some pepper, olive , cereals and brioche
    • Taste
      A rich, fresh and sweet whisky with notes of marzipan, lemon peel, plum, wine vinegar, orange, grapefruit, white pepper, butter, hint to tabac ash, smoke, licorice, a hint to maggi plant, milk chocolate, honey, brine and green olives.
    • Finish
      A fairly long and slightly drying aftertaste with notes of honey, fresh herbs, citrus, soft smoke, salt and a hint of wine vinegar.
