Top reviews for Ledaig 10 Year Old:

— This is just really good. A little bit of smoke and a whole lot of flavor. Very smooth. A great introduction to someone who thinks they don't like peaty malts.

— Having taken my family to the Isle of Mull and wandered the lovely town of Tobermory, I of course made it mandatory to go to the distillery. After buying their Tobermory, Ledaig 10 and Ledaig 18, we drove the winding roads back to the Glengorm Castle where we were staying. I had never been a big heavy peat lover, but that night I put on my Barbour coat and stood on the stone wall overlooking the bay as wind was swirling and the the sky spittin' rain...and I totally understood it all. Love all their scotches, and the 18 year is mesmerizing.

— Another one I never recieved......... Guess it is time.

Brendan,
I get an almost rubber-like in the smoke flavors, with some nice sweetness under it. Maybe even some grass or hay hints? It's tasty, a good dram. Unique smoke character I haven't found in other island/Islay whiskies. 7.4/10

Smoke, lemon and brine on the nose. Lemon and smoke continue to the palate followed by sweet and medicinal notes and hints of pepper. Laphroaig “Lite”

This was so awesome I want more... the nose is full of memories of peat and smoke which only gets stronger when you drink the dram. There is smoke, a subtle peaty flavor that seems to float around the taste buds. I appreciated the lack of vanilla and honey leaving the smoke to finish the drink completing the experience with a the saltiness to complete the taste.

Andrew,
Seriously, I could keep my nose in this glass for hours. A wonderful even, somewhat ashy campfire smoke, but wonderful rich sweetness. May just be unseating my favorite whisky with this one.

JOSH,
tastes don't come together, smokey upfront, sweet after, nothing really impressive but the split is not pleasant for me. So far my least favorite islay update: changed to 7, i love this dram now that i'm halfway through. spicy blast of smoky peat upfront and mellows into a honey sweet finish that all blends as you drink because the sweetness lasts on your tongue and blends into the next sip. i leave the previous review to journal my progression with this fine scotch.

Excellent combination of salty, sweet, spicy, and smokey.
 
Joe
Joe,
Nose: Quite light and well-balanced. There is a very soft peat with a gentle smoke. Notes of barley and malt extract, with walnut and pine oil and a hint of iodine, dried fruit and nuts. Palate: Medium-bodied and quite rich. There are notes of spice and smoke gathering above the charred oak. The peat is quiet and dry with a touch of black pepper and earth. Finish: Medium-length and slightly smoky with spice.

Jeffrey,
I liked it but didn't love it. If I want something peaty, I want something peatier than this. It would be a great fit for someone looking for a smooth, balanced intro to peat and smoke. Someone else used the word creamy, and I have to agree with that mouthfeel/sensation. That aspect makes it unique, but not really what I like in a scotch. It is surprisingly mellow for a 10 year, reminiscent of something at least 12.

well balanced peaty/smoky flavor. smooth. something sharp early

Andrew,
An underrated peated masterpiece. A nose of heavy peat, fresh and vibrant light smoke, with something not quite citrusy and not quite creamy that I would call apricot, along with copper, chili powder, and soy sauce. Spicy on the palate with a tannin-like bitterness. Soy, ginger and other asian flavors open up with a few drops of water.

Travis,
I enjoy heavily peaty flavors in the cold, winter months. This is on my shelf during that time of the year. It has a remarkable sweet finish that smooths out the spicy essence.

Smokey and Peaty right in your face. Lovely, flavours great whisky for the price. Not Islay, but Islay's first cousin for sure.
