  5. Koalafant scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Still quite common in the nose, an explosion on the palate.
    87/100
    • Nose
      Medicinal smoke with a bit of ethereal freshness. Right alcoholic. Hay and cereals. No trace of sherry.
    • Taste
      Strong start with now clear Sherrynoten. Alcoholic.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and alcoholic.

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite complex. Sherry and chocolate nuts. 
    • Nose
      Bittersweet black treacle,dried prunes and raisins,spun sugar and morello cherries in syrup, dark chocolate,burnt fruit cake,molasses-this has Sherried island dram written all over it.
    • Taste
      Rich and soft, dark died fruits, but also spicy notes. Like cinnamon pepper,baking spices. Underlaying smokiness.
    • Finish
      Dry and smoky.

  8. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Big and bold, not for the fainthearted. It strikes a good balance between the peaty Ledaig-spirit and the influence from the sherry butt.
    • Nose
      Sherry influence aside, this is recognizable Ledaig spirit. The fresh peat and the sauerkraut. Plenty of vanilla too. And it works great with the sherry, which is intertwined and balanced rather than dominant. Cherries, blackcurrant jam and cigar tobacco, as well as oranges.
    • Taste
      Sweet brown sugar, candied cherries and barbecue smoke, as well as soot, tar and plenty of peat. A pinch of pepper and a whiff of burnt matches.
    • Finish
      Big on the peat smoke, with a sweet sherry touch. Long.

    The nose promised vieeeeel. Unfortunately, the taste could not hold this at all. Water did not do him any good, became cloudy immediately and tasted even sprittiger. Since young Ledaigs with sherry influence are my favorite whiskys, I had much hope that this will be a very special drop, also are the bottlings of Sukinder (The Single Malts of Scotland), and / or The Whisky Exchange actually always top-notch. Here, unfortunately, I was a little disappointed. Nose 9/10 Key 6/10 Finish 5/10
    • Nose
      The perfect blend of smoke and sherry! A wonderful scent of oak barrel with beautiful vanilla notes. It is accompanied by a scent of berry cake and Mon Cherie and cigarillos (the vanilla bias)
    • Taste
      Decent start, sometimes you will find the smell impressions again. Unfortunately paired with immature-looking alcohol. Of the vanilla and the sherry is unfortunately not much to remember. He acts Sprittig and not well involved.
    • Finish
      A metallic aftertaste remains and something spices. The Ledaig is for a while on the palate and on the tongue, but not with the beautiful notes he has indicated by smell.
