Description

Packed full of ripe berries, bitter chocolate, toasted oak and a sprinkling of cinnamon, this is not one to miss! Notes of barley and malt extract, with walnut and pine oil and a hint of iodine, dried fruit and nuts. It name comes from the original name for the area, Ledaig (Led-chig), from the Gaelic, meaning ‘safe haven’. Nose: Sweet briny smokiness with distinct island character and playful notes that hint at mild antiseptic, creosote, wax polish, mint chocolate and floral seaside aromas.

Believed to have been laden with jewels, we have finished our smoky Ledaig signature expression in hand selected Rioja casks in honour of the Spanish treasure buried deep off our shoreline.This 19 Year Old Ledaig from the Isle of Mull’s Tobermory distillery is the nineteenth batch, a release of just 475 bottles were produced from this outrun.

The depth of character and complexity is testament to a well crafted whisky, evident of only the finest ingredients and barrels and also no added colouring and non chilled filtered.

Like all the whiskies produced at Tobermory Distillery, this is non-chillfiltered and natural colour. A heavily peated expression from Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull, this 10 year old single malt is matured in superior oak casks, combining the dark, aromatic lochan water from high on the mountains with exclusively peat-dried malted barley. Ledaig Sinclair Series is named after John Sinclair, who was an innovative kelp merchant, in 1797 he applied for a lease of land known as Ledaig.

Ledaig's full-on character is a combination of very boisterous wet, earthy peat alongside coastal salinity balanced by a toffee sweetness, but it also frequently has unique layers of rubber, sweet and peppery spices and barbecued meat. The first release from this range was the Rioja Cask Finish , which compliments the smokey Ledaig profile with rich dark fruits. This 12 year old Ledaig Distillery Exclusive release was finished in Amarone wine casks for one year, creating a sweet but smoky dram with sweet vanilla custard and honey notes balanced with sharp tannins and a distinct saline note intertwined with a peppery smoke. I think a few wee sample bottles coming in the post are easier to justify to my better half than a larger box and the judging eyes burning in the back of my skull when the postman arrives.This heavily peated single malt from the Tobermory distillery has been finished in ex-Oloroso Sherry casks. Like many Scottish distilleries, Ledaig’s history is also one of mothballing and reopening, falling into some trouble in 1837 and closing completely for 41 years. This outstanding malt will put a smile on the face of every peat lover and its origin may also surprise you… By using this. Made with heavily peated barley before being matured in ex-bourbon casks, and finished in hand-selected Spanish Rioja casks, this single malt contains powerful flavours of smoke, spice, grape and sweet berries, with a lingering saltiness.
