Tobermory/Ledaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky Tasting Notes Review

The Tobermory Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The Tobermory malt whisky is born of the finest un-peated malt, yeast and water drawn from dark aromatic Isle of Mull peat lochans.  Unique climatic characteristics from Tobermory Bay ensure a fresh lightly peated, smoky nose prevails.  The pleasantly surprising taste profile is medium dry with a smooth and fruity tang.

Ledaig Single Malt WhiskyTasting Notes Review

The Ledaig (pronounced “Led-chig”)  has become synonymous with the peated style of single malt from the Tobermory distillery  The malted barley has been peat dried only, with the naturally peat infused water source adding an additional element of depth to the whiskies  final profile.  With maturation having taken place on the Scottish mainland in central Scotland, in superior oak wood has ensured an idyllic balance of peat, smoke and wood.

 

The Ledaig Original Tasting Notes review

Nose: - Distinct peatiness and fully influences the senses with a prevalence of fresh sea air

Taste: - Leaves no doubt of the unique Hebridean island heritage, with evidence of Tobermory seaweed and dry smoke,- a subtle milk chocolate flavouring leaves a lasting impression on the palate.

Finish: - Long and pleasant with a satisfying ginger sweetness and mellow soft warmth.
