Review #1418 – Ledaig 12yr The Whiskey Exchange 10th Anniversary

The Schtick: This is a special anniversary bottling of Ledaig for the Whiskey Exchange in order to celebrate their 10th Anniversary. Matured in a sherry cask and bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering. Coincidentally I had this once before, but it’s been a while so let’s give this another look. Let’s dive in!

Review #1418 | Scotch Review #491

Distiller: Tobermory

Bottler: The Whiskey Exchange

Brand: Ledaig

Selection: The Whiskey Exchange

ABV: 58.4% ABV

Age: 12 Years


Nose: Sweet wine – fig, date, strawberry. Ash, then the peat and earthiness. Sweet and rich, with the smoke to balance it out.

Taste: Medium mouth feel – no heat. Sweet pear, blackberry, currant, date. Nice blend of ashy peat and sweet fruits.

Finish: Long rich and smoky. Earthy mineral peat slap. Lovely complexity.

Overall: Total winner. The balance is perfect.

Thanks for reading!
