About Chapter 7 Ledaig 10 Year Old
Ledaig Distillery is located in Tobermory village, on the Island of Mull, but today it's known as the Tobermory Distillery. At Tobermory, they split whisky production between the Tobermory and Ledaig single malts. There’s the bright and colourful Tobermory. And there is Ledaig, which is robust, with sweet smoke and earthy notes.
After bottling a 24-year-old unpeated Ledaig, we thought it would be good to offer a younger cask. So we did. We wanted to let admirers of Island style compare the old versus the young and the peated vs the unpeated. We think it’s a very cool thing to try.
