Product Description

A single cask release from The Creative Whisky Company under "The Exclusive Malts" range of Independent bottlings and rather unusually labeled as "Ledaig" distilled at Tobermory distillery so expect more smoke and peat with this release as this was distilled in 1996 when heavily peated distillation was re-introduced.

Aged for 21 years in a single Refill Sherry Hogshead that yielded just 249 bottles and bottled at cask strength of 51.1% ABV.

Colour coded on the label as "Earthy, light smoke, oily" under the flavour profile with each bottle.

Nose: Beef and mushroom stew, earthy compost and smoked leather,prunes, twiglets and cured ham, very umami like.

Palate: Savoury and nutty and all very typical of Old Sherry cask aged Ledaig with old leather, earthy forest floor bonfire smoke, sticky dates, malt loaf with smoked butter, smoked/cured meat or salami and some sweet fig and dark honey sweetness here too.

Finish: Smoked snickers bars, mushroom stock, old leather, ripe figs, aromatic malty honey and lasting smoke and earthy notes.

A classic marmite of a whisky, i love a funky Ledaig like i love Ardbeg but some people strangely do not like either!

One for the more adventurous of Malt drinkers for sure.
