Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1997 MMcK

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.67 points

  1. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Warming peat smoke and salty sea air dominate the nose, creating something of a Caol Ila/Old Pulteney hybrid (two profiles I love in their own right). Some well-integrated vanilla and oak are also present, hinting at time being well-spent in the cask, alongside malty biscuits, some edgy herbal notes and wet hessian. Remarkably similar profile on the palate, with the soft smoke rounding off salty, malty and herbal aspects that are well-integrated with vanilla and oak. Long, warming and smoky finish that lingers beautifully. A great example of a middle-aged, peated dram that is ideal if you fancy a smoky whisky that also brings some highland coastal characteristics to the party.

    An independent bottling of Ledaig single malt Scotch whisky,
    matured in a single hogshead cask from October 1997 to November 2014. 

    Ledaig is the name used by the Tobermory distillery for
    their peated whiskies, so expect a good core of smoke and peat in this one! It
    was bottled for Càrn Mòr's Celebration of the Cask range with an outturn of 254
    bottles.

    Whiffs of sea air and faint peat smoke, on the palate there
    is sweet vanilla from the oak and maritime notes. This all gives way to a smoky
    lingering finish!
