Is Mull the prettiest of the Inner Hebredies? some would say so. It is the second largest The islands 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 its 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.
