Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2007 IM

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.03 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Solid peat standard, dense, soft, full-bodied whisky, the usual smoky-peat set.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, dense, smoky-peat flavored with warm rubber notes, smoked foods, prickly mineral shades, burnt match heads, frying oil.
    • Taste
      Soft, rich, peaty and woody notes with black pepper, charred branches, lemon peel in tea, oil shades.
    • Finish
      Soft, warming, smoke, slightly astringent notes of fresh oak, moderate sweetness, oily tones, peat, lemon peel, a little fresh grass.

    If you like the mixture of great sweet wine aromas with smoke, the Ledaig is just right for you. For me definitely without water!
    • Nose
      Wow, it smells like a fruity rose wine with a cigar. And the color - the Ledaig still looks like rose wine.
    • Taste
      Nice and creamy in the taste. Sweet notes of wine and a delicate touch of classic Ledaig smoke. Water almost bores him, as the aromas and the beautiful smoke are incredibly flat.
    • Finish
      Amazingly short, pleasantly sweet finish, then the decent smoke remains in the mouth.

  3. Hemdl scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Disappointing, right down the line. One of the weakest Ledaig, which I had so far in the glass. Immature, unbalanced. I have the feeling there was a really weak barrel trying "aufhübschen", which is not really succeeded.
    • Nose
      Young, sour, metallic and smoky. He could not quite put off the youthful notes, which is noticeable despite the influence of the Pomerol barrel. The alcohol is always present and not perfectly integrated. After a while in the glass, the sweet-and-sour influences of Pomerol become stronger.
    • Taste
      So what is that? Acts despite the almost 50% Vol. Somehow watery and reserved. The alcohol is perceptible as such, but the flavors are buried under a blanket. Again, slightly metallic and out of round, next to the dull smoke and slightly vinous notes with a little oak there is not much. Sounds worse on paper than it actually tastes, but that's not really convincing.
    • Finish
      Rather short, even if the smoke naturally adheres to the palate. Sweet smoke, some spice, that was it.

  5. schero scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose is very reminiscent of young smoky Bunnas or Caol Ilas. I do not like that at all. The rest was much better.
    • Nose
      Younger and metallic smoke, ashes, citrus notes, sweet rosé notes underneath
    • Taste
      Sweet and at the same time salty beginning, the smoke wants to pass, becomes creamy, again citrus notes, a bit dry
    • Finish
      The little sweetness dominates again over the smoke, the finish is very short, only a slight residual sweetness remains
