Ledaig 10 Bottling Note

The Tobermory Distillery on the picturesque Isle of Mull isn't home to just unpeated whisky. It also makes superbly smoky single malt under the name of Ledaig (that name isn't simply a coincidence, by the way - Ledaig was one of the distillery's previous names!). Distilled using the same pot stills as the classic unpeated Tobermory expression, just with peated barley instead, the whisky boasts plumes of rich, earthy, almost medicinal smoke, with underlying fresh fruit and crushed spice notes. This particular expression ages for 10 years before bottled at the very specific strength of 46.3% ABV.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose 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, dried fruit and nuts.

Palate Medium-bodied and quite rich. There are notes of spice and smoke gathering above the charred oak. The peat is quiet and dry with a touch of black pepper and earth.

Finish Medium-length and slightly smoky with spice.

Every time I have a dram of this whisky I am shocked by its quality…
If you like complex peated whisky, Ledaig 10 is very hard to beat

Pleasant and Gentle - Nothing Spectacular
As it says in the heading, this is a very kind and nice whisky which won't remain in your memory for very long. Reasonable VFM, but you could do a little better for the money.

My favourite peat 10 year old.
Ledaig 10 is now by far my favourite 10 year old peat whisky. The depth of character and complexity is testament to a well crafted whisky, evident of only the finest ingredients and barrels and also no added colouring and non chilled filtered. I appreciate peat whisky isn’t for everyone but peat whisky lovers who haven’t tried Ledaig 10 don’t know what delight they’re missing out on.

A savoury and serious character. I'd prefer a touch of sweetness to round it off
A lighter colour which I always find a little disappointing for a serious spirit, but in no way affected flavour!

On the nose; cherry and peat

Initial tasting; simple sugary sweetness with no "sweetness of..." nuances, which I found disappointing.
Sourness, or sharpness of sherbet; more sharp than lemon, but not overpowering to cause a face spasm.

Sea salt came through, followed by smoke and a savoury finish.

With water, a floral aroma with a real presence of pear in the tasting, followed by the same smokey savoury finish.

8/10; it is a serious sipper that doesn't bring an ounce of sweetness, meaning it might possibly be good for use as a serious old fashioned cocktail dare I say?

My 2nd favourite; Lagavulin 16 brought more nostalgia and sweetness to the table, but less initial crispness.

Yummy, yummy Whisky.
A superb and well peated Whisky competing with some of the best from Islay, it definately tasted at it’s best when 50% of the bottle was completed.

An absolute gem
Firstly I need to say I am not a fan of peated whisky, I was given this as a gift.

Total peat on the nose, and therefore (me not a big pest fan) I was worried.

A few drops of water and the taste is totally different. Absolutely amazing and I think it has to be in my top 5 whisky’s. Great value for money too.

Very nice
A great whiskey from Islay! Who doesn't like peaty whiskeys, shouldn't even comment! It adds nothing of value!

Biscuity spices & nectarous smoke.
Biscuity spices, lightly dried fruit & nectarous smoke. This has a nice complexity & overall slightly less in your face than Islay versions. If you like Talisker 10yr, this one will compare.

Good but not great
It is a nice alternative to the Islay whiskies. First time I have bought Ledaig 10 in 2013. It was GREAT. Now it is GOOD.
I dont want to say I am disappointed with this whisky, but it has now definitely less smoke and it is coloured. Also it is fruitier and sweeter. Once again it is not a bad whisky by no means, but personally I would rather buy a bottle of
Caol Ila 12, Laphroaig 10 or even Scarabus or Ileach
