Official tasting notes

Nose: Warm vanilla, sweet smoke, orchard fruit.

Ed's review

Colour: Natural colour, straw. Lots of oily legs slide down the side of my glass.

Nose: Sticky honey glazed ham. Barbecued pineapple - fresh and juicy, yet caramelised and charred. Chilli, oil and vinegar dipping sauce. A faint grassy note.

Palate: Medium mouthfeel. Sweet and spicy glazed pork ribs, smokey from the BBQ. More peat smoke. Orange, papaya and pineapple. Oak and warming spice.

Finish: Medium to long. Dark gingerbread decorated with dried orange, Christmas spice, and brown sugar. A savoury, smokey note that lingers on the tongue.

An awesome whisky.

About This Murray McDavid Whisky

Overlooking the fishing harbour on the Isle of Mull, Tobermory Distillery produces both unpeated and heavily peated spirit. The latter is bottled under the distillery’s original name, Ledaig (pronounced lay-chack). This rich, oily single malt spent its final years in a special rum cask from Diamond Distillery, in Guyana.

For the last 30 months, Murray McDavid's Whisky Creations Team has waited with anticipation to share this brilliantly boisterous single malt with whisky lovers across the UK.

What you need to know about taxes

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
