K&L Notes

Ledaig is created in the only distillery on the island; the Tobermory distillery, founded in 1798. The distillery is also home to the world famous Tobermory single malt. While it has its trademark un-peated malted barley taste, the Ledaig brand represents the peated side of single malt from the island. Ledaig’s character owes its quality to many sources: the traditional 18th century distillery, the maturation for the full 10 years in superior oak wood casks (laid in ancient vaults that ensure each year passes without so much as a whisper or movement in its midst), the dark and aromatic Lochan water source situated high on the mountains, the malted barley that has been exclusively peat dried, and the 43% alcohol by volume that complements the smokiness of the palate perfectly. This is a many-layered masterpiece. Ledaig 10 Year Old tasting profile: Color: A bright lemony gold. Nose: Immediately pungent with sweet tar and creosote aromas that release wood smoked fragrances with hints of liquorice and leather. Palate: Sweet, smoky flavors with an explosion of spicy pepper, then boasts a savory salty maltiness. Finish: Liquorice and cloves combine into a medium length smoked pepper finish. An ideal balance of peat, smoke, and wood. Sweetness: 6; Peatiness: 9.

I was a Scotch drinker in my 20s, but for some reason that I can't remember, I stopped drinking them. After being around David Girard for awhile, he became sort of a "mentor" to me, and I am having a lot of fun being reintroduced to the world of Scotch. The Ledaig has been, so far, one my my favorites, with a very balanced amount of peat (which I love), and a quite intriguing whiff of white flowers, leather and lots of spices. I will keep you posted about this exciting journey with other reviews.
