Rather confusingly, Ledaig (pronounced ‘Laycheck’) also goes under the name Tobermory and is to be found - unsurprisingly in the town of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull.
Established in 1823, the distillery draws it water from the Ledaig Burn and this highly distinctive whisky has a true character all of its own: think smoked, barbecued meat, spicy black pepper and a vanilla sweetness.
On paper, three very disparate flavours, but Ledaig, despite its extremes is a surprisingly balanced whisky and has developed a genuine cult following amongst whisky drinkers worldwide, working exceptionally well as both a young whisky, as well as one with great age and wisdom.
