- Ledaig malt whisky is produced at the Tobermory distillery, the only distillery on the island of mull. The distillery was founded in 1798 by John Sinclair. In those days it was called Ledaig. The distillery was closed between 1837 and 1878. In 1890 it was sold to John Hopkins & Co. who where acquired by the Distillers Company Ltd in 1916. The distillery closed again in 1928 and didn't reopen until 1972 under the name Ledaig. However in 1975 the receivers where called in and the distillery was mothballed once again. In 1990 the distillery resumed production under the name Tobermory. In 1993 the distillery was taken over by Burn Stewart whose other distilleries include Bunnahabhain and Deanston. Today Tobermory distillery switches between producing two different single malts. The first one, a lightly peated malt called Tobermory and the other, an extremely peaty malt called Ledaig. The majority of the malt produced at Tobermory is either used in Burn Stewart blends such as Scottish Leader and Black Prince or is sold to other blenders.
The nose is profoundly peaty, sweet and full, with notes of butter and smoked fish. Medicinal enough to suggest an Islay. Bold, yet sweet on the rounded palate, with iodine, soft peat and heather. Developing spices. The finish is medium to long, with pepper, ginger, liquorice and peat.
