Top reviews for Ledaig 10 Year Old:

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

— 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.

— Friendly smoke and peat. Well balanced and delicious.

Great balance of flavors including the smoke and peat that I like. I was quite surprised.

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.

Lovely smoky flavour, peaty without tasting like dirt. Easy drinking as far as scotch goes.
