  1. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    We can say that it’s not as dirty and aggressive as many Icemen, but at the same time it’s very powerful and juicy in taste

  2. Bendrachm did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Nice, light bodied Ledaig.
    • Nose
      Honey water. Kitchen spice. Fragrant. Hardly any peat. Just a hint of dry moss.
    • Taste
      Hot and squeaky. Grainy honey sweetness, mixed with briny liquorice (salmiak). Treacle, overripe kiwi, dades. Caramel. Some distant lime. All very light and fresh.
    • Finish
      Dry. Brine. Not very long.

    One of the best Ledaigs I've tried so far. If you're fond of the dirty Ledaigs you may want to try before you buy though.
    • Nose
      Peat, apple, speculaas, tangerine, vanilla cookie, malt, minerals and a salty whiff. Quite fresh for a Ledaig.
    • Taste
      Peat, tangerine, apple, gingerbread, malt and caramel. Quite sweet in a rather addictive way.
    • Finish
      That sweetness remains next to the peat. Crême brûlée, tangerine, tea and dark chocolate.
