Ledaig Dùsgadh 42yo, 1972-2015, 46.7%

I generally don’t like Ledaig, as I’ve said on multiple occasions before. I also generally don’t get samples of this caliber. Luckily, I was at our 25th Anniversary party of the Usquebaugh Society last weekend, and Ronald Zwartepoorte brought the … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition 4: Ledaig 8yo, 2005-2014, 53.3% – Whisky-Fässle

Yesterday was a proof in point that I can somehow trust my palate. I still am afraid of making a total ass of myself by stating something contrary to what I’ve said before on my blog. So far so good, … Continue reading

Ledaig 16yo, 1997-2013, 56.8% – Gordon and Macphail for The Whisky Exchange

Ledaig and Tobermory, a distillery that supposedly releases some kick-ass drams every now and then, but one that I’ve never fallen in love with. I’ve tried quite a lot of the young Ledaigs from a couple years ago and can’t … Continue reading

Tobermory 15yo, 46.3%, Limited Edition 2008

Ah, Tobermory. I have a weird relationship with that distillery. When I went to my first whisky tasting ever, in Den Bosch at Barrique, there was one which I thought absolutely sublime. I only ended up not buying it since … Continue reading

Ledaig 7yo, 2005, 62.8% – Archives, Fishes of Samoa

First things first. I have no experience with Ledaig from the 1970s. I do have some experience with Ledaig from the last 20 years or so. I do not like those whiskies. Every time I try one I hope that … Continue reading

Tobermory, batch 1, 53.8% – That Boutique-y Whisky Company

That Boutique-y Whisky Company was launched last year at Maltstock, so it’s nearing its first birthday in early September. In the meantime they have bottled quite a bit of small batch releases, not coincidentally in a pattern comparable to Master … Continue reading

Ledaig 8, 61%, 2001-2010 – Daily Drams

I have always found the Daily Dram a bit of a curious name. It kind of contrasts with the ‘drink responsibly’ statement found everywhere. They do produce a number of rather good whiskies that are sort of affordable. Not that … Continue reading

Tobermory 17, 57% – Master of Malt

In a recent batch of samples I received was this wee baby. A 17 year old Tobermory and a single cask. Time for Tobermory to prove itself, since I am not a fan of their usual output. The 15 year … Continue reading
