Product Description

A small batch release of heavily peated Tobermory distilled back in 1997 and then matured in bourbon barrels and then finished in Marsala wine casks.

It was bottled late 2016 before arriving to markets at the beginning of 2017 and bottled at an impressive 51% ABV.

Nose: Classic funky Ledaig opening with smoked saurkraut, earthy, meaty and savoury peat balanced with some black grape and red berry fruit from the Marsala casks, plum dipping sauce, sausages on the bbq with fruity HP sauce or chutney, and some smoked cheese rinds.

Palate: Peppery smoked meat (think game sausages with chilli flake and sweet sauce) that funky ketchup note again, black grape skins, blackberries over tar smoke, duck and orange pate, quite rootsy and earthy body.

Finish: Gamey and earthy, truffle and smoked meats, black grape jelly, blackcurrant cordial, sooty peat smoke, peppery anise, clove and caraway seeds.

A fun and funky Ledaig not for the faint hearted who just want something "SMOOTH" but a challenging and most unusual array of flavour combinations even i as a huge fan of Ledaig had not come across before.
