Andytka3 gave this whisky 92 points

N- Oh, just love the nose melting aromas that make u moan with pleasures (oops~). The hefty strength comes with rich coconut, fish oil, seaweed, camphor and sterno gel.  Diesel and hot tar, tea smokes white oak with whiff of white flower, addictive.


P- Direct, spicy, salty, bitter gourd, vegetal peat with nice smoked citrus lemon peel, brilliant and full throttle.


F- Ultra long, kumquat, acidic dry and spicy, everything are up on your palate with no if or but.  A classic peated isle dram.

HammerHead gave this whisky 80 points

As with other younger Ledaigs I have some real issues with the nose. At first glance it's quite ok with loads of vegetal peat, smoke and iodine. When I'm really sticking my nose to this whisky however, I get overwhelmed with poor quality grappa, boiled cabbage and rotting swamp gasses.
There's also a little lemonzest in the background.

It picks up considerably in taste with again the vegetal peat, campfire smoke, ash and charcoal. There's also some pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg like spices in the development.

Finish is very long with a touch of cinnamon and long lasting ash and charred oak qualities.

Overall this whisky is a bit off balance, actually a bit too much for me...

Nose

 Nous sommes clairement sur la tourbe, normal me direz vous chez Ledaig. Cette tourbe est plus minérale, sur le fer, et citronnée qu’à son habitude. Le côté Ledaig fermier est là mais beaucoup moins prononcé . Après aération, nous pouvons sentir les fruits cuits, les agrumes confits et le miel. Par moment le tabac froid et les cendres viennent puis repartent.

Taste

Très belle puissance, les 60.9% sont là mais pas dans l’excès. Nous sommes sur une tourbe grasse et herbacée. Il y aussi des épices, de la menthe poivrée et ce je ne sais quoi de sucré/salé. Il y a une légère austérité mais pas si désagréable que cela. Le fût de Sherry n’est clairement pas identifiable.

Finish

 Longue sur la tourbe, le tabac froid et les cendres principalement.

Comments

Un Ledaig certes pas d’une complexité folle mais possédant une belle explosivité et ne souffrant pas de sa jeunesse. Les 55 euros “seulement” sont un vrai plus aussi dans un contexte où les prix flambent régulièrement

Tourbe citronnée, végétale, de la cendre froide et un léger côté fermier.
En bouche la tourbe est imposante. Bonne texture épaisse et alcool bien intégré.
Longue finale sur la cendre froide avec une pointe de Zan.
Un bon Ledaig typique de la distillerie.

tomy63 gave this whisky 87 points

couleur paille, nez légèrement fermier, tourbé, surtout très maritime, peu de sherry. Belle ampleur en bouche, fraîche, un peu minérale et austère, citronnée, iodée, cendre froide. Assez longue. Bien fait mais pas hyper complexe ni jouissif.

Nose

Très Ledaig, très maritime, avec beaucoup d'iode, du citron, très vif et frais. Un peu de tourbe en arrière plan. Des notes de cendres et un côté "fermier". Je ne sens personnellement pas du tout le sherry

Taste

Huileux, poisson gras. Le rendu est gourmand, iodé, sucré comme il faut. Les 60,9% sont bien intégrés. Toujours un peu de cendres et des notes fermières.

Finish

Plus discrète que le reste, avec un peu de cendres et d'iode.

Comments

Pas de déception pour le rapport q/p, même s'il n'y a pas de surprise et que le sherry ne se sent pas du tout.
