Ledaig has a lot in common with Islay, namely the use of peated malt, but it cuts a much different figure than your typical Islay peat bombs. Primarily that is because this 18 year old malt is finished with sherry casks, a practice that is not unknown in Islay but which isn’t all that common. Brendan McCarron, Master Distiller at Tobermory Distillery said: “Ledaig is one of our more heavily peated, smoky whiskies that has a really distinctive flavour. Named after an area of land in which our distillery was founded in the 1790s, it’s one of Tobermory Distillery’s cult whiskies and an expression we’re very proud of. Ledaig 18 is true example of our Hebridean artistry and transports drinkers on a journey to Mull, showcasing the very best of the island that inspires every drop that comes from the distillery.

Nose: seaweed notes and eucalyptus, followed by mineral smoke and oyster shells. Hints of brass polish. While there is a hint of berries and tobacco, the sherry is not very prominent. Then a firm sooty note comes forward, as well as a light farmy note. On a side note, private entities were just allowed to start making their own alcohol a few years ago. I have seen someone make mead, and there are now a couple of gin distillers, too. Brass Lion, one of the gin makers, just barreled their first batch of Singaporean single malt in the middle of 2018.

Ledaig 18 Year Old Details

Our Service is an online platform which provides Members with information (e.g. bottle facts, market-indices, market values and prices) on (mostly) whisky and allows Members to add information to the platform. We do not sell, nor does the Service provide any option to buy, any alcoholic products. From the color of Ledaig 18 alone, it appears the finish is much deeper and longer than most sherry-finished Islay whiskies, as well, and here we really see the best of both worlds — smoky peat meeting sweet sherry. My mothers immediate family is from Mull and they would be proud of how smooth this Whiskey is my wife and I love it cheers everyone.
