Ledaig 18 Years Old 70cl 46.3°

Distillery : Tobermory / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 24962

This Ledaig is a wonderfully smoky and balanced Single Malt that comes from an ageing in ex-Bourbon barrels before experiencing a finish in ex-Sherry Oloroso barrels.

Non-chill filtered and non-coloured, it has an aromatic profile very rich in aromas, focused on smoked peat, the spices brought by ageing in sherry casks and a maritime touch.

In 1795, the Tobermory distillery was established thanks to John Sinclair whose fortune allowed him to bring barley and coal from the Highlands by boat. However, because of its isolated location, the distillery closed its doors many times but resumed its activities in 1990. Soon after, it was bought by the Burn Stewart group.

The particularity of this distillery is that it produces whiskies under two different names: Ledaig and Tobermory. Tobermory, name of the only village on the island, is characterized by its non-peated malts, its finesse and elegance. Ledaig (former name of the village) is peaty and developed with Port Ellen malts. The Burn Stewart society bottles all its single malts at 46.3 ° without chill filtration.

Nose: smoky and balanced between rich and fruity sherry, marine notes of seaweed and salt, and spicy black pepper with hints of sweet oak.

Palate: rich and powerful, marked by sherry and smoked herbs, orange peel, coffee, a touch of sea salt, tobacco and white pepper.

Finish: long and spicy with an omnipresent smoke, a touch of liquorice and sea spray.
