    87/88. Compared to cask 900160, there's more dark fruitiness in this one. I think it's a bit better than that one. If it were priced as an 11-year-old, I'd definitely buy it.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Caramel, milk chocolate, peat, blueberry and salty pretzels. When adding water there's a lot of sugar-roasted nuts.

    Good, but worlds away from the 2004 barrels.

  6. RichardMayston scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly good for a 10yo non Islay. But wouldn't pay 150.
    • Nose
      Very Sherried nose, some peat

      Pennies, old coins

  8. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Although having been matured in a first fill sherry butt for 11 years, this Ledaig is instantly recognisable. Delicate smoky character with spicy elements and a pleasantly balancing sweetness, along with delicate fruity components. Perfect to enjoy neat. No water please as this islander becomes very dry and smoky.I thank Kirsch Whisky - The House of Whiskies for the sample!

    • Nose
      There's instantly smoke on the nose with a delicate sweetness of dried fruit - cherries and plums in particular. This is accompanied by smoked ham, maritime and slightly medicinal notes, followed by a hint of tobacco leaves in the back.
    • Taste
      Bold and intense on the palate with smoke and medicinal flavours at first. Warming alcohol, nicely mixed with black pepper. Then the creamy fruitiness arrives with plums and cherries, along with vanilla and some more red fruits. Lingering notes of cloves, nutmeg and allspice towards the finish, all wrapped in delicate smoke.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, warm and slightly sweet with subtle black pepper, burnt caramel and dry oak on the tail. Nicely mouth-coating.

      With water: Water tames the sweetness and delicate fruity flavours bringing more peat smoke and medicinal flavours to the fore. There's also more medicinal notes on the palate with iodine and gauze bandage. Less sweet but more dry oak towards the finish. The finish is still long, spicy and warming with subtle fruity flavours and dry peat smoke on the tail.
