Description

This Ledaig 1996 Vintage Single Malt Scotch Whisky is some of the first spirit distilled when peated single malt production commenced at Tobermory Distillery in 1996. Peat-dried malted barley is married with naturally peat infused water from the distillery’s private water source, a dark aromatic lochan, high in the mountains above the village of Tobermory, ensuring an intense smoky flavorsome character. Matured in superior Oloroso sherry casks the result is a wonderfully peated single malt, with apple and a hint of mint with citrus aromas. These disappear into the dark as the peaty embers glow into a smoky finale.

Distilled and filled into cask in the summer of 1998, this delicious Ledaig was matured for almost 6 years before being transferred to Oloroso Sherry casks in the summer of 2004 for a further 13 years.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Color

    Rich deep gold.
  • Nose

    Fragrant smoke, toffee caramel, seaweed, apple with a hint of mint and a few citrus notes
  • Palate

    Crackling peat sets off millions of flavor explosions on the palate, black pepper then bursts then a light sherry sweetness.
  • Finish

    Smooth with a spicy salt tail, these disappear into the dark as the peaty embers glow into a smoky finale.

“This extra long finsish, has imbued our Ledaig with creamy toffee apple and sweet dired fruit notes, which compliment our rich, smoky Ledaig perfectly.”


Origins

Established in 1798, ours is the only distillery on the island of Mull and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. It is unique, not just because of its idyllic location, but because it produces two different, but equally alluring, single malts: the fruity, unpeated Tobermory and the more robust and smoky Ledaig. Centuries have passed, but our uncompromising tradition, dedication and devotion remain. It is always a privilege to welcome new friends to our distillery and share our  world with them.
