A peaty treat from the isle of Mull, matured for 19 years before being bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company. This comes from the Tobermory distillery and was released under the Ledaig name, as is the done thing for peated Tobermory whisky. Pretty scary looking mythological-looking chap on the label with a war hammer. That's exciting.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Classic Ledaig – all roadworks, smoky bacon, peppercorn sauce, chamois leather and metallic peat, but also some aromatic lemon zest and a floral airiness, too.
Palate: Chilli spice, black peppercorns, an earthier peatiness this time. Roast pork sausages with a smoky apple sauce, a malty element, and some rich 90% cocoa dark chocolate for good measure.
Finish: All about the leathery peat smoke and a sweet chilli kick.
Overall: Signature Ledaig with all the delights it brings.
