Ledaig 10 Year Old

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

Good stuff

Quite rich and full, more earthy peat than ashy smoke. Spicey, especially cloves. Will most definitely buy again, for the price it’s a very good buy.

A bit too rich n sweet. Smoke is a little overpowering at first but finish is nice

Campfire. Salt. Potent at first. Thought of smores.. then walnut.. slight salted chocolate and shortbread. Smooth salty finish yet rich. Slight seaweed. Iodine.
Interesting layers

More people should discover this one

I’m an Islay fan and decided to give this a try after watching Ralfy’s review on YouTube. He’s spot on with this one. Beautifully balanced it reminds me of a more intense Highland Park with a good dollop of peat added. Superb for the money and one I will be buying again. If you like Lagavulin, Caol Ila, Ardbeg I’m sure you will enjoy this one.

Unbeatable peated scotch for the price

Im a fan of Islay whiskies, and this is my go-to peated whisky (for the price) its magic and its not from Islay. I wasnt sure when i first popped the cork, it lacked a bit of refinement around the edges. But something has happened in the bottle after a month since ive had a few drams. The maltyness has really developed into something special. On the palate i get gentle rounded salty smoke, then a sweet caramel apple, black pepper, bit of lemon and fish. So nice.. I have tried all of the Islay's and this is a winner for the price

This is a very fine whisky, it's just like a peaty tobermory 12. I'll probably stick with the tobermory next time but glad to have tried this.

Perfect balance

I am switching to Ledaig from Lagavulin, if I can find it in NC.

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.
