Whisky Reviews for Ledaig 2005 MoS

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.59 points

  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Dirty smoke, paired with sugar sweetness and a sour note, which takes second place with the addition of 2 drops of water, while now clearly menthol, glaciers and citrus scent dominate.
    The taste also provides a light meaty component, before he says goodbye in the long, powerful, smoky finish.

    Wild and impetuous, unfortunately somewhat one-dimensional with little draft. The typical cow barn character of the Ledaig is here not as formative as usual.

  2. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Delicious, not so very dirty Ledaig from the Bourbon barrel. Fresh and bread.
    • Nose
      surprisingly mentholig fresh for a Ledaig, then a lot of grain, malt and fresh white bread. No salt or maritime notes. Like Islay without a sea.
    • Taste
      strong sharp smoky onset, here now quite dirty smoky and with a lot of caraway-covered souls. A little ham on it and finished is the snack.
    • Finish
      medium long, spicy, smoky.
