    I like this crystal-clear Ledaig profile, without any off-notes. add 05.11.17 btw. except the Ledaig-specific ones which are inherent ;-)

  7. Bishlouk scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Typical Ledaig: farmhouse smoke, honey, vanilla, apricot.

    Palate: Smoke, apricot. Pretty sweet.

    Finale: Slight bitterness, always present smoke.

    Verdict: Pretty sweet, I would have leaned for a refill Sherry. Not bad, the reduction is well controlled.

  8. Torfding scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Although only drinking strength, the Malt comes quite strong. Pleasant to drink, almost tasty, but still missing something.
    • Nose
      green and steamed apples, apple compote, citrus fruits, a little pear and herbs, some smoked meat and a cheese or farm note, harbor air, bandage material (but decreases significantly in the air)
    • Taste
      rather thin and fresh, light chocolate, fruits (rather exotic, a little banana), finest sea salt, sweet, comes after the first moments peppery and smoky backwards
    • Finish
      long and rather strong, but also not very meaningful; a bit ashy (very fine) and cozy smoke, pleasant and warming, later sweeter (as a sugary sweetness) and reserved fruity
