Ledaig Rioja Cask Finish Bottling Note

The Tobermory Distillery has kicked off its Sinclair Series of bottlings with a brilliantly flavoursome Ledaig single malt, which has enjoyed a finishing period in Rioja wine casks! The series is named after the distillery's founder, John Sinclair, and this particular edition packs plenty of peaty notes alongside the ripe red fruit sweetness imparted by the Rioja casks. A sublime evening dram, this.

Not to be missed

First tasted this at Hampton Court food fair, iked this so much, this is the third bottle

Great Value Malt

Wow, cracking dram. I'm a relative new-comer in terms of peat enjoyment but I found this utterly delicous. Smoke and warm fruits on the beak. Hit of the peat on the palate giving way to cooked red berries, caramel and a very light hint of brine. A sweet, peppery finish. Will likely replace the bottle quickly, especially at that price. NAS, but to be frank it matters little to me.

A belter - not to be missed if you have not tasted it, provided you like a strongly flavoured dram.

This is a belter!
Don't consider it unless you like peat, smoke and salt, but if you do, this is an exceptional whisky that you will return to again and again. My favourite treat in many a year, bought for me by my son who did the groundwork and then took the advice of a shop assistant in St Andrews. Whoever he may be, I raise a glass to him. Exceptional :)

A delicious creation.

I first tasted this from a drinks by the dram taster selection gift box. I was impressed enough to order myself a bottle for my wife to give me for Christmas. I'm now hooked on it, its delicious! It's a very different taste to any whisky I've tasted before and I can imagine that it may not appeal to all drinkers with traditional tastes, but I think its a masterful creation and I recommend that you try it. As described by earlier reviewers, smooth, smoky, sweet and fruity with a super lingering finish. I will buy again.

Very impressive.....5* NAS single malt

Took a punt on this one as opposed to the highly rated 10 year old; I am genuinely impressed, despite its relatively high price (for a NAS). I was worried that the Islay heavily peated expression would be too much but I was pleased to discover that it is a nicely balanced malt with good arrival and development. The finish is arguably a tad short with just a whiff of an iodine trail (but not in an offensive way). Red berries, smoke and peat is clearly evident and right from the neck pour, I was fully onboard with this delightful Island whisky. If Tobermory can reach this standard with a NAS, I'll certainly continue the trail to their 10 year old. Highly recommended.

Smooth, Peaty, Smokey and Fruity.

I ordered this more as a novelty because I'm a Sinclair descendant. I was actually shocked how good this single malt is. Peaty but not overwhelmingly so. And I don't know how they did it, but it is Smokey and Fruity at the same time. Had to force myself not to finish this in one sitting.

Sweet and smoky, loads of fruit. More complex than you'd expect for the price.

Pricey for NAS

OK, it's pricey for a NAS whisky - no matter what barrels it has been visiting. That said, this is a rather nice dram. To me it's sweet rather than smoke heavy. Surprisingly, given the ABV, it doesn't take to water too well. Makes me wonder what a longer maturation period would bring to the party. I'll buy it again.

A nice dram for the price

I'm loving the smoke and red fruit. Really.

Unique and delicious

One of a very few whiskies that I have reordered before finishing the first bottle. Absolutely delicious, loads of sweet smoke and beautiful pink colour from the rioja casks.
