Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 BD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.07 points

  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Quite a lot of smoke. Aromatic and greasy. Campfire. The sweetness is only really on the tongue.

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

    So much going on but all well balanced and integrated. Perfect
    companion for a barbecue. A tasty, creamy and smoky Ledaig for a
    reasonable price. Gorgeous.

    I thank the German independent bottler Best Dram for sample and photo.

    • Nose
      Oh yes, this is typical Ledaig. Soft peat with a gentle smoke. Smoked
      bacon with hints of salt. Notes of malted barley with prickling iodine
      and a touch of spice, black pepper and maybe some juniper. Fine tones of
      dried fruit. Well-balanced.
    • Taste
      Bold and delicate, medium-bodied and quite rich. Smoke and smoked bacon,
      together with fruity sweetness are complimented with charred oak.
      Lingering sweet malted barley and fine vanilla convoyed by crisp iodine
      and seaweed. Very pleasant.
    • Finish
      Medium-length and warm. Sweet creaminess end with prickling black pepper and long-standing smoke.

      WITH WATER: Smoke, peat and smoked bacon take a back seat in favour of fruity sweetness and creamy vanilla.
