Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2008 SV

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.13 points

  1. aphex scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Peat smoke, lemon, a bit farmy with time.
    Mouth: Punchy, malty (I even have some bread), citrusy. A bit of sweetness but not too much.
    Finish: Long. Smoke, salt, not so much.

    Not your complex peater for sure but a nice young and well balanced one.

    Ledaig 2008 - Signatory for Le Gus'tLedaig 7 yo 2008 (60,3%, Signatory Vintage for Le Gus ‘t 2016, cask #751, 312 btl.)
    Nose: medium peat and quite some toffee sweetness. Like butter toffee. Light cabbage in the background. Gets fresher after a while, with nice citrusy notes of oranges and lemons. Almonds and touches of vanilla latte. Surprisingly citrusy and even a little floral with water. Mouth: youngish and sweet, but with a nicely thick texture. Roasted malt, buttery notes again, burnt grass and a little nutmeg. Slightly acrid smoke, dark soot and increasing nutty notes. The same citrusy notes underneath. Hints of coffee beans as well. Finish: long, but it’s mostly the smoke, the sugary sweetness and a hint of salty liquorice that continues – other flavours seem to disappear.
    A good Ledaig, especially because of its above average complexity and the interesting development when adding water. Regular price: € 85 which is quite heavy. Now launching for € 70, see their website.

  3. Dede scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: smoky malted barley, with a good dose of lemon juice. The peat is massive, very Islay in fact, on the side of Ardbeg rather than Laphroaig. We also find the notes of Granny apple rather typical young Ardbegs. A little white pepper too. Is more farmer after adding water.

    Palate: very powerful and full, but the alcohol is remarkably well integrated. We find what the nose promised, namely a young and fiery malt, close to the cereal, heavily peated, with notes of citrus. It swims well, the water bringing out the bitterness of licorice.

    Final: long and inevitably peaty, with a return of licorice.

    A young peaty malt, not complex for a penny but fiery, with a very well integrated alcohol that brings a nice aromatic power. To book however peat freaks because it is not in the lace. Excellent daily dram for that falls into this category.
