Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 1999 TWCC

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.22 points

  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Sugar sweet, slightly earthy smoke. Some smoked ham. Reminds me of sweet stuff. Chewing gum, candy, shower sticks. White mulled wine, vanilla. A really nice fruit note is behind the smoke, but I can not get it apart. Gets milder. Reminds me of warm, somewhat stale, dark wheat beer.
    • Taste
      Mild, smoky start. Smoked sweets are immediately distributed in the mouth. The fruit is clearer now. Orange, pear, some passion fruit. Marzipan, slightly earthy. The dark wheat beer comes at the end even through. The alcohol keeps itself back.
    • Finish
      Medium. Smoky sweet, malty, spicy oak, a little bitterness. But oily evidence.

  3. chlinatele scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very nice barrel selection. I like it very much....
    • Nose
      Nose slightly smoky. But not as strong as expected. Rather comfortable :-) Then vanilla
    • Taste
      Smoke, vanilla. Smoke but not disturbing .... Very gentle to drink despite CS
    • Finish
      Unfortunately a bit too short but a very good whisky.

  4. Bosi scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    A really good whisky, which proves that Ledaig has many facets to offer even with a little older age. Especially in the current flood of young Ledaigs a successful change.
    • Nose
      Classic Ledaig smoke rises in the nose. However, this does not cover the wonderful notes of ripe oranges, strawberries, chupa chups and fruit sweets. With a little time, the fruitiness gives way to smoother malt notes and sourdough.
    • Taste
      Cold ash meets malt beer and bread dough. In addition, I also taste marzipan, almonds and tropical fruits. The alcohol is perfectly integrated. An almost soft leather thing.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately a bit too short for the great impressions of the nose and the taste. A lot of vanilla, marzipan, some salt, oak and dark fruits remain.

  6. WillemvdK scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    This one is dirty! Peaty maltiness with lots of dirty off-notes like stable, manure and some fishy stuff. If you're into this than it's an absolute treat. Hate it or love it. Nonetheless it's well made, properly balanced and full bodied. Good stuff!

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    • Nose
      Peat. Quite farmy like a cow shed. Lemon, white chocolate, orange and a bit of washing-up liquid. Later quite some maltiness that reminds me of dough or even prawn crackers. 
    • Taste
      Peat, orange, white chocolate, malt, herbs and ehhh... spring rolls.
    • Finish
      Peat, dark chocolate and something perfume-like.

  8. Defeatless scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Here we go again! light peat. This time it is just on the edge in my opinion. So burnt car tires, ashtray and other lung diseases. I smell almost nothing, except, very crazy, banana. With water: Vulture .....

    Taste: Yes peat, bit metallic. This is high in the alcohol and I think I will refurbish some water. The taste improves with water, but it stays a bit with the standard vanilla, peat, caramel and wood.

    Body: That's okay, it's pretty creamy

    Finish: Besides ashtray I also notice some vanilla and caramel fudge, clear bourbon barrel influences.

  10. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful balanced whisky, in which the smell, body and finish fit together nicely. Character, versatile. (Was sample at Blind Tasting)
    • Nose
      Leather, light peat. Slightly smoky too, some roasted meat. And fruity, citrus, lime. And also some sweet, vanilla, honey-like.
      Pleasant smell and promising.
    • Taste
      Leaky peat, some salmiak, bit sharp / peppery. Also some fruity sour, citrus. And again sweet notes, honey. A nice balance between light peat and fruity and sweetness. Alcohol is reasonably present.
    • Finish
      In the aftertaste the same flavors come back as in the body: Some peppery, peat, little smoke, sweet and citrus. Also a bit dry and he switches to slightly bitter. Again nice in balance.
