  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Musty, rubber, a gym after the holidays
    Boah is really just for hardcore fans

  2. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The peat profile remains interesting, and I would happily sip a glass of this on winter (okay, and also on autumn) nights, but for a higher score, it would have to boast a better body. It's too thin overall, which really puts a damper on things.

    22 + 22 + 22 + 22 = 88 smart kerosene

  5. DerDennis! scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very complex nose, but with the typical Kuhstallgeruch of Ledaig, through which one must first fight through.
    On the palate, I find almost everything again, which I've already imagined smelling.
    The finish is a bit too short, but quite pleasant.

    • Nose
      Sherry, bacon, smoked ham, in the background maritime
    • Taste
      Sherry, smoked ham, oak, maritime
    • Finish
      Long, smoky with oak

      Class Malt - great, after 18 years still plenty of smoke

  10. Kensay scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    The nose is spicy-iodide, energetic
    Sweet vanilla, oily, salt, pepper, caramel
    The finish is sweet pepper, long enough

    Good molt, but quite straightforward
