Ledaig 1996 Limited Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Island

70cl / 46.3%

Ledaig (Pronounced "Led-Chig") is Gaelic for "Safe Haven" and refers to the original name for the area, with the idea being that once the sea-farers reached the harbour they would be safe from the fierce, West Coast seas. 

This Ledaig 1996 is a new annual Limited Release small batch production. introduced to accompany the already existing small core range of Ledaig malts currently available.

Matured in superior Oloroso sherry casks the result is a wonderfully peated single malt, with apple and a hint of mint with citrus aromas. These disappear into the dark as the peaty embers glow into a smoky finale.

Nose: Fragrant smoke, toffee caramel, seaweed, apple with a hint of mint and a few citrus notes.

Palate:Crackling peat sets off millions of flavour explosions on the palate, black pepper then bursts then a light sherry sweetness.

Finish:  Smooth with a spicy salty tail, these disappear into the dark as the peaty embers glow into a smoky finale.
