  • Excerpt: This wasn’t super peated as some people might think but I think it is rather well balanced and has a fair amount of oomf and flavor to it. Sweet, peat, and citrus are a winning combo in my book.

  • Excerpt: A very, very fine Ledaig, for sure. It’s just that the thousands of indie bottlers around us are having even better ones these days. Only IMHO, of course

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is a core expression release from Ledaig, which is peated distillate hailing from Tobermory distillery.

  • Nose:

    Huge mineral wiff, earthy, dirty peat. Faint iodine. Faint fishy marine notes. Vanilla cream, confectioners sugar. Nice brine and pepper component.

  • Taste:

    Thin, but no heat. Sweet vanilla, lots of chalky, mineral peat smoke. Some pepper, caramel and cream.

  • Finish:

    Long, earthy and smokey. Lots of minerals here. The peat smoke is more earthy, mineral and peppery than ashy or super fish like.

  • Overall:

    This is really great, especially for a younger core expression. Nice work, Ledaig.

  • Score:

    6
