Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2008 DD

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.35 points

  1. Ostap scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Is there a bad Ledaig? Rhetorical question. Smooth work. Deliciously. The aroma is quite multifaceted, it is interesting to sit with it, despite the youth, which is still manifested.
    • Nose
      Sweet at first, earthy, smoked peat, baked potatoes, chemically plastic, noticeably salty, iodide, smoked fish, sour farm notes, acetone, meat in BBQ sauce, lemon with salt, dried seaweed on a sea fireplace, a hint of dried mushrooms, some tropical fruits slip through, light ash and smoke.
    • Taste
      Lemon, sweet, smoke, ash, BBQ meat sauce, mineral, toffee / vanilla, mint candy, soft.
    • Finish
      Smoky, voluminous, long, warming, mineral, ash, vanilla, mint.

    Nose: Sour-sweet, strongly reminiscent of Koala in smoke, smoke.

    Flavor: Sweet, dry, with a bit of pineapple-like fruit. Liquidish despite the degree. Light smoke on the background of fruits.

    Conclusion: Disappointment, on the one hand, it seems not bad, but the wrong distillery was named Ledaig. Don't know what in the glass you would imagine a young Koala from a bourbon barrel. Overall disappointing.

    not the whisky that I would like to return to, either could not stand it enough, or the barrel is simply unsuccessful. It is difficult to imagine why some comrades were able to put this whisky 90-91 points ...
    • Nose
      Polish and wormwood, immature, a feeling of incompleteness
    • Taste
      wormwood, chemistry, wood
    • Finish
      unripe green fruits, some kind of chemistry, it’s difficult to make out the specifics
