In a nutshell:
A Gordon & Macphail independent bottling from Tobermory, the Isle of Mull's only distlliery.The lowdown:
Ledaig on the label generally denotes a peated single malt of which this is faithfully true to type. The peaty aromas give way to flavours of stewed fruits, sultanas and currants with some creamy chocolate also within. The pleasantly lingering finish fades away with hintso of oak and citrus.
A quite welcoming single malt with a pleasing smokiness.
Gordon & Macphail
are among the best known independent bottlers of Scotch Whisky and certainly very well regarded for the quality of their products. Independent bottlers are companies who purchase casks of whisky directly from distilleries and further age and bottle them under their own label for re-sale. Now quite a long standing practice in the Scotch Whisky industry it provides an interesting niche market and often brings to the market single malts from distilleries whose Scotches mainly go towards blends and are seldom otherwise seen.
