    Can't understand the bad ratings here. The whisky is young, yes. The whisky is out of round, yes (but is that bad?). But the whisky is still recommended. Has
    a lot of hay and grain, takes a while in the glass and is not overloaded with smoke.

    It stays in your mouth for a long time!

    A total of 89 points!

    Wow this is minging. Pour-down-the-sink disgusting. If you're a lover of Ledaig and discovered it through recent distillery or indie editions, don't ever try this. It'll put you off forever.

  3. Sb17sw scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Pretty good and fresh this one here. Young, yes, yet balanced and nice. Not so much smoke and benefit from spending some time in the glass, much like many Springbanks. Leave this for half an hour and you will be well rewarded.

    Young thing with quite a lot of power. Nothing bothers me. At that time, the malt makes everything right.
    • Nose
      Smoke is there immediately but intertwined, altogether quite light, lemongrass, eucalyptus, wet salinity, second nose leaves hardly anything to recognize from the smoke, some sweet and pale light fruits will come, artificial strawberry flavor (Haribo snakes)
    • Taste
      Mild and sweet after the smoke has given off its first power, peppered apple juice, a little ship plank floats above everything, nice mouthfeel, 42% fit well
    • Finish
      Nice spicy, smoke is medicated, stays in the mouth for a long time (medium long +), vegetable hot pepper (pepperoni) remains

    A nice light summer whisky. Could have a few more turns. Notes from a blind tasting!
    • Nose
      Lemons and apples; nice summery fresh with grain and straw; a sweet vanilla note in the background; In addition, a subtle malt aroma mixes; the alcohol is only slightly noticeable in the background; over time, lightly spicy, light notes of wood will appear and it will become sweeter
    • Taste
      nice creamy and very very mild; sweet honey and again apples; oak and grapes are added; over time, a prickling on the tongue sets in
    • Finish
      medium and spicy; nice again with oak and lemon; the palate remains spicy and sweet

  9. Torfding scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    If the somewhat unpleasant side notes were not, this altogether rather dry malt would be quite a good beginner-ledaig; his former price was well worth it.
    • Nose
      In a somewhat unpleasant way, the Ledaig smells thin and a bit like an industrial cleaner, but at least the latter gives way after a while; Somewhat smoky (more in the medical sense), fresh sea air, hay flowers and dry grass clippings, nut shells
    • Taste
      smoky sweetness with a spicy-herbaceous and slightly bitter impact, sugar melting in the mouth, a pinch of salt, wet rotten wood; it gets a little sweeter with time
    • Finish
      medium-long, smoky, a slightly bitter-vegetal note with a hint of citrus; looks a little rough, but not scratchy and runs laxly down the throat

      Crispy, peat smoke, biscuits, cardboard 
    • Finish
      Short, smoky, spicy

  16. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    strong young smoker, who can "stink" well against some Islay, not metallic or one-dimensional, for the old price (under 30 €) always recommended
    • Nose
      fresh, slightly medicinal, salt, sea air, bitter vegetable: grass and flower cut, fresh hay
    • Taste
      bitter-sweet-smoky, campfire, burnt sugar, earth, wet, mossy wood, a hint of salt and spicy sharpness
    • Finish
      For a long time, here again medicinal, vegetable and bitter notes strike, to a bit bitter, burnt sweetness

  24. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Menthol iodine aroma, which is quite strong and distinctive. Next there is the scent, reminiscent of green apples. (83 b)
    • Taste
      Fine, so diluted peat, a little sweetish, with an iodine reverberation. My taste is quite reminded by Tomintoul Peaty Tang. (83 b)

  25. granella2003 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    fromhttp://www.masterofmalt.com/product.aspx?par1=ledaig-light-whisky
    • Nose
      Quite light and well-balanced. There is a certain
      freshness, pertained from notes of cut hay and straw, barley sugars and herbs,
      notes of cereals and melted salty butter on granary toast
    • Taste
      Medium-bodied with a richness. There are notes of gentle wood smoke and barley
      sugars, a farmy note with hints of hay and a roots with a touch of cereal
      sweetness and caramel
    • Finish
      Long and slightly herbal.

    • Nose
      Lovely, fresh aromas of honey, cereal, peat and
      hay.
    • Taste
      Medium to full-bodied.
      Distinctive peaty, smoky taste with gorgeous floral flavours.
    • Finish
      Dry finish

  27. granella2003 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Seems very young. Tarry rope, sacking. Understated.
    • Taste
      Gentle peatiness covering crisp malt. Decent structure. A sweet start. The peat is light and sits in the centre of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Short.

  31. Feusi scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Surprisingly peaty, salty, and the scent. Soft, malty sweetness with a nice peaty notes. To drink surprisingly balanced. Almost refreshing sparkling Ledaig, with a balanced sea and peat notes. Creamy sweet pleasantly peaty finish.

  32. karloff scored this whisky 76 points Specialist

    Could not believe how good this malt was considering how cheap it was, almost clear in colour.
    • Nose
      The peat and smoke is obviously there but not to strong, Rubber tyre and Lilli flowers are also thrown into the mix
    • Taste
      Lovely combination of the peat and smoke with vannilla thrown in, also there is liquorice in there, some spices and a pinch of sea salt.
    • Finish
      A very dry, light smoky medium finish.
