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.

Ledaig 10 Year Old Reviews

Medium peat, medium taste

This is a very good scotch. But if you want something that goes that extra mile go with Talisker 10. However, that doesn't mean this shouldn't have a place in your collection. Its well balanced, mild, and easy to drink. Its a slightly beefed up Ardmore Legacy. Very good, just not quite great.

Lovely peated dram

This is a lovely dram, much more palatable than the Ledaig I used to buy in Tobermory twenty-odd years ago. Not as bold as some of the Islay heavy hitters, but a well balanced, medium-bodied peaty island whisky. What's not to love?

Pronounced Le Chig or Le Chik

Even if you have trouble pronouncing this peated masterpiece by Tobermory, don't forget to savor every drop. It is in the 4 out 5 range of smokey and peaty, just the right amount in my book. It wont overwhelm like Laphroiag or Ardbeg will, its just like Goldy Locks' porridge, just right! This is my go to when Im looking to be bold but not over the top.

Turpentine

Ledaig collects all the jars of soaking paint brushes from local DIY fanatics, colours the liquid with some nice brown creosote and bottles it.

Used to be great

This was my favourite reasonably priced quality dram for years. Smokey, peaty, fruity, coastal and a lovely pale straw colour. It's now inexplicably been murdered with e150 caramel. What a letdown. Desolate.

Exceptional for the price!

Pleasantly surprised...I prefer Islay heavily peated smokey whisky but this was excellent!

Fantastic alternative to Islay

This really is a terrific whisky and better than expected. Anyone who likes Port Charlotte 10 this is very similar just not as heavily peated.
For less than £40 this has to be one of the most underrated Scotches around. Terrific!

Get your peat and salt, but nothing more

Good but taste close to Islay Mist cheap blend. However, not disappointed.

Awesome

Perfect balance of smoke and spice with a lingering finish which excites.

Sweet, smoky, peat, lovely sticky finish

Wit a dram, beautifully balanced full of rich coastal flavour, plenty body and an amazing smoky sweet finish that lasts for several glorious minutes, hats off
