An older, discontinued bottling of the Ledaig 10-Year-Old â€“ the classic peated malt from the Isle Of Mullâ€™s Tobermory distillery.
The current bottle design, complete with an increase to 46.3%, was introduced around 2010, so we believe these bottles are from around 2009.
This is bottled at 43%, from whisky distilled prior to the turn of the millennium.
Ledaig is the peated line of the Tobermory distillery, located on the Isle Of Mull. The distillery has traditionally distilled peated and unpeated whiskies in a 50/50 split. The heavily peated spirit released under Ledaig, a former name of the distillery.
The distillery was closed in 2017 for major refurbishments and upgrades and is due to re-open in May 2019.
This is a lighter style to the one we recognise today, and slightly cleaner for what is a notable grungy whisky.
Tar, creosote, char and medicinal notes amongst salt and spice.
In a review dated 2009, WhiskyFunâ€™s Serge Valentin wrote, â€œGood and interesting whisky, maybe less oomphy than most Islayers but maybe also more complex and less wham-bam-in-you-face.â€
