Ledaig 18, 46.3%

I’ve often ranted about how I don’t like Ledaig. Of course, there was that little 42 year old that was just out of this earth and so ridiculously good looking at that might be considered Malt Porn. It’s one insane … Continue reading

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

Ledaig 2004-2014, 51.6% – Liquid Art (Pink Salmon label)

Right. A pink salmon, with insects for fins or so. Weird. Anyway, to get this out of the way: I don’t like Ledaig. It displays flavors that I don’t find interesting. It has a weird smokiness that is strangely clean, … 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

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

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
