    Delicious.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully hearty smoke! Typical Ledaig - it smells like a strong smoked bacon with herbs. The sherry only comes out now and then with dark sweetness and fruity undertones.
    • Taste
      Strong and smoky. The alcohol content fits perfectly. Fruity but also slightly sour to leather. Aromatic oak. Fine sage.
    • Finish
      Long and smoky. Not bitter.

  10. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    With a little water, this leathery becomes more woody, smokey in the nose and on the palate sherrylastiger. A really fine island smoker.
    • Nose
      Very pleasant Ledaig smoke in the herb bed.
    • Taste
      Pleasant sherry, smoke and sage. Shön strong, fleshy.
    • Finish
      The taste is now complemented by a fine oak note.
