  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not particularly complex now, but quite good. You don't notice much of the sherry, but nice bourbon notes in combination with the full Ledaig aroma. I notice again that Ledaig is always with me ;-)
    • Nose
      Clearly Ledaig, smoke with the classic smell of muff, also known as a cowshed, tart, yellow fruit, some vanilla, light sweetness lies above the acid, a veil of peppermint
    • Taste
      sweet, here too the sour, musty smoke, vanilla, overripe peach, quite good to drink, no bad notes
    • Finish
      creamy, sweet, peach, smoke on the palate, still intense, long-lasting

  4. Lorion scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    In short - great. Super interesting and great combination of creamy-soft and smoky-rugged. 85 points!
    • Nose
      Spicy sweetness, but the sweetness remains discreet. The seasoning dominates. There is this cheese flavor. But now a soft smoky note is added. She is so tender that I did not notice her at first - completely immersed in the cheese. Now, however, smoke is clearly noticeable, not very much, but clearly. Banana is in the nose. The smoke gives the banana something greasy and together with the still present sweetness I get the association of one of my favorite deserts: Banana in bacon with sweet chili sauce. After the palate comes into play, the smoke comes back a little bit. Banana is more intense, orange comes to it and the spice is breakable in oregano and thyme.
    • Taste
      First creamy and sweet, then the smoke increases. Much more intense smoke than in the nose. Seasoning and smoke dominate, sweetness and fruit remain hidden. It almost gets a little ashy. With each sip the impression is repeated. Initial creamy sweetness is replaced by the smoke, an exciting process that the smoke decides faster and faster.
    • Finish
      Long and on the spicy-smoky side, not very warm. So much alcohol will not be involved.

    This one isn't as good as other IB Ledaig like Opeth83 says. Others are cleaner, more intense and wilder or richer because of a more pronounced sherry cask. Still not that expensive.

    Well another IB Ledaig, by far not as good as other I have tried.
