Description

This sherry butt has ever-evolving aromas ranging from rich fruit cake and root ginger to spent fireworks, bonfire ash and a touch of old waxed tent canvas. Add a little water to bring out notes of blood orange. The viscous palate offers more dried fruits, leather and tobacco, with a satisfying coastal tang emerging on the finish. A classic west coast dram.

About this SPIRIT

Tobermory Distillery, Isle of Mull

Tobermory Distillery, Isle of Mull

Tobermory can trace its history back to 1798 and is now the only operating distillery on the Hebridean Island of Mull. Two whiskies are produced; Tobermory, which is a vatted malt and the single malt Ledaig.

Ledaig, unlike Tobermory, is distilled from heavily peated malted barley. During the malting process, burning peat is used to dry the barley in a kiln. The reek from the burning peat is absorbed by the barley through the husk of the grain, and the reek remains through the mashing, fermentation and distillation processes, eventually leading to a superior single malt with a highly distinctive peaty, smoky taste. That malt is Ledaig, a superb, intricate Island Malt Scotch Whisky.

Isle of Mull

Isle of Mull

Is Mull the prettiest of the Inner Hebredies? some would say so. It is the second largest  The island’s main town of Tobermory, with its kaleidoscopically coloured houses is home to the eponymously named distillery.

In common with Springbank, the distillery is one of very few distilleries that produce more than one whisky. Ledaig (pronunced ley-chek) itself is a wondrous surprise.  Yes it is peated, but completely different from it’s Islay cousins. Ledaig is very much in the Manzanilla mould. Bright and fresh, with a wonderful salinity. The peat is a delicate whisper. Tobermorey itself is an unpeated malt, delicate and fruity, with occasionally a lightly honeyed nuttiness.
