About this Oxhead Dram-Addicts release
Today, Ledaig is known as the heavily peated make from Tobermory distillery, whereas the distillery’s namesake is a gentle and fruity dram. However, things were once more complicated - as there were some fantastic peated Tobermorys, this Ledaig is instead unpeated, brimming with tropical fruits and sea breeze. It’s summer in a bottle!
