Product Information

Tobermory, the capital of Mull, lies towards the northern end of the island. The bay is one of the safest anchorages in the Hebrides, indeed the original name for the area was Ledaig (pronounced Led-chig) from the Gaelic, meaning 'safe haven'.

As well as Tobermory, the distillery also makes Ledaig single malt. The main difference between the two is that Tobermory is lightly peated and Ledaig is quite heavily peated.

The water source for the distillery is a privately owned Loch close by the Mishnish Lochs, high in hills behind the town. The water from the Loch is richly aromatic with peaty phenols that lend impart a subtle flavour to the whisky. Due to the water's character the barley malt used remains unpeated.

The ageing process now takes place at Tobermory's sister distillery Deanston, near Doune, for a minimum of ten years. This change of location induces further complexities in the final blending.

Ledaig 18yo

Deliciously rich, non-chill filtered and natural colour the 18 year old Ledaig is the second peated release in the core range.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Rich, fruity sherried smokiness, lovely balance of phenols, seaweed and light creosote, dried chilli flakes, spicy black pepper with hints of sweet oakiness.

Palate: Powerful rich, sherried, herbal smoky flavours, orange peel, coffee, a touch of sea salt, tobacco and white pepper.

Finish: Long and quite pungent with more smoke, a hint of liquorice and sea spray.
