The distillery, which was formerly known as Ledaig, was founded in 1798 and has changed hands several times, having undergone a number of periods of closure. The only distillery on Mull, it is currently owned by Burn Stewart Distillers, a subsidiary of Distell Group Limited of South Africa. Its main product, Tobermory single malt, is used in the blends Scottish Leader and Black Bottle. The distillery also produces a smaller amount of peated whisky, which remains known under the former name, Ledaig. They also make a gin named after the colourful town.
Tobermory Ledaig 9 Year Old Bordeaux Cask Matured
The latest Limited Edition release from Ledaig (our peated single malt) has been fully matured in red wine casks and bottled at cask strength. The resulting dram is bursting with flavour – heather and pine cones with woody sea salt and floral notes on the finish.
A small batch limited edition release, our peated Ledaig has spent 9 years maturing in the finest Bordeaux red wine casks. Bottled at cask strength at 56.8% ABV allows the character of the whisky to shine through, creating intense and rich flavours. Like all our whiskies, this release is non-chillfiltered and natural colour.
Nose: Smoked fudge, eucalyptus oil and carbolic soap.
Palate: Burning heather and pine cones. Grape skins and melons, wood smoked meats.
Finish: As the smoke drifts, some floral notes develop and finally lime pastilles.
