Ledaig 2008 12 Year Old
Independently bottled single malt from the isle of Mull's Tobermory distillery, released under their Ledaig name. Peat, glorious peat! This was distilled back in 2008, and bottled for the Connoisseurs Choice range by Gordon & MacPhail in 2020. Matured in Refill Sherry Hogshead for 9 long years, this superb malt was then transferred into Hermitage cask for further three years, Expect sweet smokey top notes with summer berries and lemon zest. Smooth and creamy with black pepper, raspberry and apple flavours.
Tobermory distillery is located in the Isle of Mull, north of the Isle of Jura. Founded in 1798 under the name 'Ledaig'. The distillery has gone through very long silent periods of production at least twice in its history. By 1972 had been closed for longer than it had been distilling whisky. These days the distillery is owned and operated by Burn Stweart Distillers and the un-peated malt is sold under the Tobermory label while the lightly peated whisky is sold as Ledaig.
