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

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

Mull it over

Much nicer than Talisker in my opinion and a very good reason to return to Mull one day.

Great peaty whisky from the Isle of Mull.

What a pleasant surprise from the Isle of Mull. I´m a fan of Islay whiskies and just wanted to try something new. In a blind test – I´m absolutely sure – without the overall sweetness, I would guess that this is some high-end Laphroaig! There´s even that ashy aftertaste of Laphroaig in it.

At first you should give it a short rest in a glass, water isn´t necessary, I didn´t even try it. Then, in the nose, it´s very much like Ardbeg 10. But after tasting it, it´s far from Ardbeg 10. More balanced, more stable, more lively.

Still, I would say that Ledaig 1o isn´t the most complex whisky in the world, but... after that familiar peaty, smoky tar and seaweed – that´s so characteristic to Islay – there´s some absolutely lovely salty and peppery tones in it. Also some entry level Talisker wax, but much, much more in the context.

This whisky is very far from the cripple entry level versions of Talisker and Bowmore – even though it´s very sweet. Sweetness dominates a little bit, but doesn´t cover too much in it.

Really, outstanding at it´s price. I`ve never ever tasted anything better at the price, highly recommended. Five stars because of the price/quality ratio.

Outstanding at its price

If you’re man (or woman) enough to cope with a proper, powerful whisky which improves with a drop of water, you’ll likely enjoy this. If, on the other hand, your preference is the lightly floral, gentle and slightly effeminate whiskies from the Spey, this is not for you. Absolutely delicious, you serve it by the slice.
