The history of the Tobermory distillery, which was renamed Ledaig between 1972 and 1975, is interspersed with periods of closure and reopenings. Since 1993, it has produced two single malts, one unpeated, named Tobermory, and the other peated and named Ledaig (30-40 ppm). Alternately very peaty, heady, rancio, exotic, chocolatey, saline, empyreumatic and spicy, this
version brilliantly summarises the unique and enchanting style that is the trademark of the finest Ledaigs.

Colour: orangey copper.

Nose: rich, concentrated. The particularly intense and expressive first nose reveals a fairly dry, rooty and yet very elegant and compact peat. Next, notes of brandied cherries and apricot highlight the quality of the very well-integrated sherry cask maturation. Allowed to breathe, the aroma palette becomes increasingly heady (lily, freesia), exotic (mango, persimmon) and superbly chocolatey. The overall effect is one of radiant harmony.

Palate: lively, tempestuous. The striking attack is an accurate summary of the nose. Very quickly, however, an even more chocolatey and above all more saline peat takes over. On the mid-palate, it is dressed in medicinal (arnica), camphoric, animal (bacon) and empyreumatic (sandalwood, chimney fire) tones. The end of the palate allows a glimpse of a fruity (raspberry) and lemony spirit.

Finish: long, deep. Characterized by notes of slightly damp earth, the start of the finish is subtly floral (poppy, cornflower, violet). The peat has quietened down, becoming more liquorice and delicately peppery. With its flavours of curry and ylang ylang, the end of the finish is undeniably oriental. On the retro-nasal olfaction, once again very present peat takes over the centre of the palate, allowing the deliciously sweet juice of a ripe apricot to flow through. The empty glass is nobly spicy (cardamom, saffron, ginger).
