A peated single malt whisky from the Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull. Named after one of the distillery's previous names, Ledaig is produced using peated (30-40ppm) concerto barley, matured in ex-bourbon casks. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46.3%.
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. Soft peat, gentle smoke.
Palate: Tantalisingly sweet, medicinal flavours infused with enticing sparks of spicy pepper and dried fruit with rich peaty smoke and a velvety vanilla and malty creaminess.
Finish: A wondrous union of sublimely spicy white pepper, the vibrant sweetness of liquorice and a kick of cloves with a exquisite lingering saltiness.
