    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

  10. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A full-bodied and lovely peaty dram with a delicate filigree orchard
    fruitiness. Well-balanced with oak spice, tangy sweetness, lingering
    smokiness and a maritime edge. Typical Ledaig, instantly recognisable.
    Would recommed to add a few drops of water as the lovely fruitiness
    develops nicely at least on my palate.

    I thank Kirsch Whisky Import for the sample!

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with a deep peatiness, followed by gauze bandage,
      rubber and some herbal/grainy notes. Behind that fruity flavours of
      green apples, lemons and peaches arrive, nicely lingering with hints of
      walnuts, seaweed and tender spiced oak in the back.
    • Taste
      Clean and fresh on the palate! Deliciously sweet and fruity with
      apricots and stewed green apples, immediately followed by an intensely
      warming spiciness of pepper, crystallised ginger, cloves and a lovely
      peat fire. Herbal notes, hints of sea salt and smoke towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish shows good length with a slightly warming spiciness,
      complemented by creamy fruit, barley sugar, crisp peat, seaweed and a
      hint of smoke on the tail.

      WITH WATER: Water significantly tames the
      fruitiness and sweetness, bringing more phenols, ashy and maritime
      flavours to the fore. On the palate, however, the lovely aroma of
      peaches and lemons is still very present, well balanced with ginger,
      spiced oak, cloves, peat and subtle seaweed. The finish is medium long,
      warm and spicy with creamy vanilla, acacia honey, oak and ginger. Subtle
      peat smoke on the tail.
