Ledaig Sinclair Series Rioja Cask Finish Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
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.
The first release in the new Sinclair Series is a non aged statement Ledaig Rioja Finish, ruby red in colour and perfectly balanced peat smoke with sweet, fruity Rioja.
This Ledaig Sinclair Series is non-chill filtered and bottled at 46.3%.
Colour: Ruby Red
Nose: Notes of Turkish delight and rose petals balanced with candied fruits and grapes followed by rich leather and a beautiful peppery spice. A hint of chocolate comes through at the back.
Palate: Creamy mouthfeel packed full of almonds, barley and sweet malt with notes of peppery Ledaig, which give way to black raspberries, sweet vanilla and cocoa interspersed with cinnamon spice and hints of freshly cut grass.
Finish: Lingering smoky finish with red fruit and sea spray.
