Highland Single Malt, 48%, 70cl — Small Batch of 2 casks, Refill Sherry Butt
Limited edition of 1488 bottles — LMDW Exclusive

Located on the Isle of Mull, the Tobermory distillery was founded in 1798. Renamed Ledaig in 1972 when it reopened after 42 years of closure, it closed again in 1975, before reopening under the name Tobermory in 1989. It produces two single malts, one unpeated, Tobermory, and the other peated (30-40 ppm), Ledaig. To produce the latter, the distillery sources barley from the Port Ellen maltings. This particularly generous version delivers one after the other, in complete disarray and without holding back at all, all of the ingredients that sculpt its extreme personality. Ledaig to the tips of its toes, it prefers to take a route off the beaten path to reach its destination.

COLOUR
Bright gold

NOSE
Taut, concentrated. The herbaceous (white mint, straw) and smoky (ash, soot) first nose is also marked by notes of lemon zest, camphor, root ginger and hydrocarbon (diesel, polish). Allowed to breathe, it moves into a more sweet pastry tone, whilst remaining tangy (lime tart). Note that the aromatic palette gradually gains in floral (lily, iris), infused (green tea), fruity (Mirabelle plum) and velvety (artichoke heart) elegance.

PALATE
Lively, stately. The very mineral (chalk, slate) attack is also very juicy (pear) and honeyed (acacia). Very quickly, however, tiger balm and mentholated flavours guide the tasting to an extremely medicinal and vegetal (aniseed ball, liquorice) register. Saturated with intense smoke, the end of the palate is empyreumatic (tar, Papier d’Arménie).

FINISH
Long, honed. The very expressive start of the finish brings us to a field of peat where wildflower grow (dandelion, buttercup, daffodil). It then slowly but surely develops animal (bacon, leather) and salty (samphire, seaweed) tones. The retro-nasal olfaction is dominated by notes of citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit), white mint and black fruit (blackberry, blueberry). In a grand finale, the empty glass is an invitation to breathe in the sea air at the seaside.

ARTIST COLLECTIVE
Like the artist collectives that create a hive of exchange, inspiration and design, our Artist Collective range is dedicated to creativity and diversity.

It features all regions and all styles of Scottish single malt, as well as all types of maturation and bottling strengths.

To illustrate the labels of this fourth Artist Collective collection, a design competition on the theme of trompe l’oeil was launched amongst students of French design schools.

The six selected artworkds echo the richness of the single malts of the range and the universe to which they are linked.
