Ledaig scotch comes from the Tobermory distillery, which is proudly one of Scotland’s oldest. Established in 1798, it is the only distillery on Mull. 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.
COLOR: dark amber
NOSE: Smoke and vanilla. Rich and warm. Some gasoline (in a good way), along with lemon and grapes. Fresh and a bit dry. Complex and keeps changing throughout my sniffing.
TASTE: Smoky, rich taste. Mostly vanilla, licorice, lemon and ashes. Not very complex to taste, but powerful!
FINISH: White pepper, smoke, ashes and licorice. The sweetness disappears.
