Ledaig is the name used for peated expressions coming from the Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull. In fact, Tobermory was called Ledaig for a while during the latter half of the 1900s, but soon switched back to Tobermory. The label of our Ledaig has a very angry man on it who seems to have had quite enough of Islay thinking they’re the last word in peated whisky and he’s going to set the record straight. How is he going about doing that? Well, he’s taught himself to fly and he’s got himself a massive sledgehammer, for starters...
Nose: Meaty, smoky and earthy and generally yummy. Notes of steak crisps, cooked apple and crushed pepper.
Palate: Smoky peat, leading into yet more peppery warmth. A little bit chocolatey at points, too.
Finish: Almond biscuits, tea leaves and a lasting hint of oak-y caramel.
