- 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.
- 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.
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)
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
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!
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
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
medium and spicy; nice again with oak and lemon; the palate remains spicy and sweet

- 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.
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
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
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
