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 an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Tobermorry (Ledaig is peated Tobermory spirit) and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail. After aging for 16 years, this releas was bottled at 46% ABV, with no coloring. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, fresh baked bread. Honey, vanilla bean. Light ash. Sweet apples, pears, figs and a light icing sweetness. More sweet on the nose, rather than ashy.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouth feel. Faint pinprick of heat, but nothing unreasonable. Sweet honey, light oak, vanilla bean and then some minerality. Some ash and burning wood. Not a lot going on here besides that.

  • Finish:

    Short, not a ton going on. Apples, almond, pear, sweet cream and ash.

  • Overall:

    Overall, not bad. Not exceptional, but entirely fine. It seems so neutered overall, with so little Ledaig ash and peat shining through.

  • Score:

    5
