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 19 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is some of the first spirit distilled when peated single malt production commenced at Tobermory Distillery in 1997.Peat-dried malted barley is married with naturally peat infused water from the distillery’s private water source, a dark aromatic lochan, high in the mountains above the village of Tobermory. The spirit was then matured in superior oak wood casks before being finished in Marsala wine casks. The result is a beautifully rich, sweet peated single malt.
Nose: An intriguing balance of black pepper and smokiness with notes of sweet dessert wine, dried fruit, citrus, toffee, and delicate ginger and clove.
Taste: Mouth filling sweetness, notes of citrus fruit, berries and grapes, sweet toffee and hints of dark chocolate developing into a full peat explosion of black pepper and bonfire smoke.
Finish: Long and lingering pepper, smoke with a fruity overtone.
