Ledaig 18 Year Old / 46.3% / 70cl
A rich, well-aged, sherry cask expression from the idyllic Isle of Mull distillery known as Tobermory. The spirit itself is oily in texture with intense peaty notes and old wooden ships.
Nose: Rich, fruity sherried smokiness, lovely balance of phenols, seaweed and light creosote, dried chilli flakes, spicy black pepper with hints of sweet oakiness.
Palate: Powerful rich, sherried, herbal smoky flavours, orange peel, coffee, a touch of sea salt, tobacco and white pepper.
Finish: Long and quite pungent with more smoke, a hint of liquorice and sea spray.
