One of the few peated malts you will find outside of Islay. The distillers at the Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull certainly know their way around peated malt. This 18yo Ledaig is a great expression of what a great whisky can offer! With lashings of phenols on the nose and subtle herb notes in the background. The palate is again smoky with black pepper and sherry trifle notes. The finish just keeps going on and on and on, and lingering oak slowly fades to reveal soft hints of citrus.
About the Producer
Established in 1798, the Tobermory distillery is the only distillery on Mull and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. It is unique not just because of its idyllic location, but because it produces two different, but equally alluring, single malts: the fruity, unpeated Tobermory and the more robust and smoky Ledaig.Scotland Island Tobermory 0.463
