Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 SV

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Wow, that's a blockbuster. Full of dirty elements, and with a high intensity of the peat smoke. There is a nice fruitiness in the nose as well, but overall the heavy side clearly dominates. Balanced is not the right word here, but it's very a very strong style and I like that.
    • Nose
      Big time funky barnyard style as is so typical from Ledaig, but then with old rusty, oil leaking engines. The peat smoke comes across as salty and dirty as can be. There is a bit of rubber in it too. I read another note describing it as pencil eraser, I think that's spot on! Then there is also toast, smoked wood chips and lapsang tea. At the end, a grassy note pops up.
    • Taste
      Nicely sour, not too hot, with some room for pineapple, cherry, but certainly the bold peat smoke. It's less oily than on the nose. Apart from that, it's more on coal, and there is a nice note of licorice attached to it. Then, burnt twigs and grass.
    • Finish
      The finish doesn't end, it goes on! There is plenty of licorice root, a dash of black pepper, the dirty, farmy and oily peat smoke, and ash. 

  2. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasty, balanced and calm enough for a young Ledaig, more like Port Ellen
    • Nose
      engine oil, a little kerosene, but quite calm and balanced
    • Taste
      pleasantly burns with oil seasoned with kerosene and sherry
    • Finish
      dry, diesel fuel with spices, long enough and pleasant
