Description

Ledaig 10 YO

The nose is quite light and well-balanced. There is a very soft peat with a gentle smoke. Notes of barley and malt extract with walnut and pine oil and a hint of iodine with notes of dried fruit and nuts. The palate is medium-bodied and quite rich.

The Tobermory distillery is the only distillery on the island of Mull, directly North of Islay and the isle of Jura. It was founded in 1798 by under the name ‘Ledaig’ (pronounced ‘Let-chick’). Tobermory was one of a small number of distilleries that was established before the Excise Act of 1823 that legalised the production of whisky, but it was closed in 1837. Tobermory remained closed for four over decades, but in 1878 production resumed again. Unfortunately, Tobermory was closed again in 1930 and remained inactive for more than four decades.

The distillery was revived again in 1972 with the name Ledaig Distillery Ltd. – the same name that was used when the distillery was founded. This effectively means that up until this point the distillery had been closed for nearly half of its life. And the restart in 1972 didn’t break that bad habit; the new owners filed for bankruptcy in 1975 and the distillery was closed again, this time for three years.

The distillery opened again in 1978 but the new owners were estate agents who rented out the buildings and converted others into flats, as a result whisky produced at the distillery now gets sent to the mainland for ageing as there is no room on site. After the take-over the distillery ran for only a few years and from 1982 to 1989 Tobermory was silent again. Distilling resumed in 1989 and the current owners bought the distillery in 1993 and currently bottle under the name Tobermory for their unpeated whisky and Ledaig for their peated whisky.

Glenfarclas 15 YO

An incredible dram from Glenfarclas, we can't say enough about it. It's a juicy, Christmas cake of a whisky, absolutely huge! This 15 year old matured in sherry wood, a superb malt which earned 95 points from Jim Murray. A lot of the whisky in this is clearly much older than 15 years, this is a really sherried dram and we love it.
