46.3% | 70cl | 30-40ppm | NCF | Scottish Isles (Isle of Mull)
At Tobermory Distillery they produce two distinct single malts made for half the year each: a non-peated Tobermory and a heavily peated (30 – 40ppm phenol) Ledaig. Each malt reflects the inspiring island – from the bright and colourful Tobermory with vibrant fruit, spice and a subtle salty notes, reflective of the harbour waters, to the more robust, peated Ledaig, with sweet smoke and earthy notes.
Over recent years, Ledaig has really stamped its mark as a superb peated whisky, and was recognised as the Whisky of The Year 2022 by Ralfy Mitchell, as well as one of the Icons of Whisky Scotland 2022: Scotch Islands (Non Islay) 12 Years & Under.
Ledaig 10 Year Old, an extraordinary and distinguished hand-crafted single malt, is Tobermory Distillery’s signature smoky expression.
COLOUR: Bright lemony gold.
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 an exquisite lingering saltiness.
