"To us, this is much more than a distillery. This is where we capture the spirit of our beautiful island."
Established in 1798, Tobermory is the only distillery on Mull and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. It is unique, not just because of its idyllic location, but because it produces two different, but equally alluring, single malts: the fruity, unpeated Tobermory and the more robust and smoky Ledaig. Centuries have passed, but their uncompromising tradition, dedication and devotion remain.
This extraordinary and distinguished hand-crafted single malt is Tobermory Distillery’s signature smoky expression. For ten full years, oak wood casks lie in rest in ancient vaults. Within them, the aromatic Lochan waters marry with the peated malted barley to create a deep golden treasure that is both floral and smoky. Ledaig is an integral part of the Tobermory family.
Ledaig 10 year old has a bright lemony gold colour. The aromas give off a sweet briny smokiness with distinct island character and playful notes that hint at mild antiseptic, creosote, wax polish, mint chocolate and floral seaside aromas. Soft peat, gentle smoke. The flavours are tantalisingly sweet, medicinal flavours infused with enticing sparks of spicy pepper and dried fruit with rich peaty smoke and a velvety vanilla and malty creaminess. The finish to this whisky is a wondrous union of sublimely spicy white pepper, the vibrant sweetness of liquorice and a kick of cloves with a exquisite lingering saltiness.
