  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Dark fruits, toffee, sweet spices, not much smoke, weird solvent off note possibly from the sample, rating based on the nose only

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A nice fresh nose, followed by a palate that is obviously peaty but also some nice pepper spice and white fruit on show here with a creamy side.
    T he balance is very good, what I would call a competent malt, it does the basics well.
    The way the fruit develops on the palate is the best part for me, a syrupy sweetness, the sort I really like.

  4. Mannix65 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Fruity old-style Ledaig - you won't find a cowshed here
    • Nose
      90 90
      Old bottle flavor, fruity, mineral, metallic - partially fermented grass, overripe apples, liquorice, mossy and a hint of maritime
    • Taste
      90 90
      Fully ripe cider apples, some orange - with water, a clear maritime algaeiness emerges and the age emphasizes the pleasant woodiness, which spreads warmly in the mouth, with an interwoven smokiness wafting around
    • Finish
      89 89
      a green fruit sweetness and the oak remain for a long time

  7. elipszis scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Very interesting drink, ledaig house style can only be felt in the finish, it is a rounded and noble drink.
