  1. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Another beautiful Ledaig. Appears older than 10y. The Oloroso finish however must have been some xth-filled cask. Not that much fruitiness to be found. 2nd tasting pending. 87p. so far.
    • Nose
      Stinky swiss cheese. Delicate peat smoke. Moist, mouldy wood fired up in a bonfire at the sea on a cold spring night. Salt in the air. Alcohol cooling your nose. Caramel sweetness in the back. Still looking for the Oloroso finish.
    • Taste
      Initially sweet. Unexpectedly smooth and mild on your tongue. Alcohol holding back. No youth at all. Very well balanced, mature whisky. Sweet vanilla at first. Then spicy oak with some pepper waiting in the back. The bonfire lights up, the spring night turns warmer.
    • Finish
      Quite long, harmonic finish. I´m having burned rubber all over my mouth. Slightly dry, mostly malty.

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    Definitely one of the smokiest Ledaigs we ever had the pleasure to taste! So peated that it could almost be mistaken for an Islay malt, if it weren’t for that quizzical twist so typical of whiskies from the Isle of Mull. At the nose it’s wild and wickedly misbehaved: huge organic notes of wet leather, grassy earth, and a nutty character no doubt due to the sherry. The palate is a sensory explosion, a full peat smoke attack backed by vegetal notes, salt, white pepper, unsugared liquorice. Definitely maritime! It grows more and more explosive, and even more smoky, leaving the palate coated in ashes and coal, but dry and clean. Very reminiscent of our “Heavy Peat” Bunnahabhain from a few years ago!

  4. Jackson05 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    N: soft nose, only faint notes of sherry - plums, salt, chalk, gravel, some lemon as well
    T: delicate, peaches, plums, ash, oily
    F: ashy peat, cherry, salt, lemon and smoke. Lovely finish.

    88/100

    The finish is terrific on this one, and in general it is more my style. Love that ashy, lemony peat. Could pass as a refill sherry Caol Ila here, probably why I love it.

    Expected a little more peat from this ledaig.
    • Nose
      Very oily in the glass. Peat smoke and earthy. Lots of citrus. Sweet malt. Can't find any sherry inluence in here.
    • Taste
      Spicy start and slightly oiled as expected. Light body but very refreshing. Still sour but in reason. Lip smacking (oil ?). Not too sweet but sweet enough.
    • Finish
      Average  fresh and sour finish with a little nutty bitterness.

  9. Koalafant scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Although he is not very streamlined and comes along very individually, he can not really convince me => 83/100
    • Nose
      The nose is not much more than quite medical smoke with a slightly "dirty" undertone and slight ethereal parts.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it looks sweet and dirty with notes of moist soil, herbal mixture and medical smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium long and burning
