Ledaig is the brand-name under which peated whiskies distilled at the Tobermory distillery are released. They have become huge fan favourites in recent years, with their smoky, spicy and complex range of aromas and flavours giving whisky-lovers a lot to explore. This 13 Year Old is one of the best we’ve tried.
Distilled on the Isle of Mull in 2005, it was then laid to mature for 13 years, including a finishing period in a quality sherry cask. The maturing process has had profound effects on the whisky, bringing sweet campfire aromas that envelop the nose, before a fiery crackle of honey and dark chocolate dance across the tongue and leave long waves of dried herb and black pepper that vanish with a puff of smoke.
Just 640 bottles of this beauty were produced, so if you’re a fan of Ledaig whisky, or you want to fall in love with something new, it’s worth adding this to your whisky cabinet while you can. A real delight.
