Ledaig Dùsgadh 42 Year Old
Product Description

A historic bottling of Ledaig, the peated whisky from Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull. This contains some of the first spirit to be made at the distillery when it reopened in 1972. The stills have now been retired and the copper from them has been used as part of the packaging. Included in the box is a copper card, which entitles the buyer to a bottle of Déanta 10 Year Old produced from the last spirit to come off these stills when it is released in 2024. A true piece of distilling history.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy

    • Nose

      Big, rich, elegant and old. Polished oak tables sat on old oak floors, with forest floor notes behind – damp earth, green leaves and bark. Savoury notes dominate, with an umami meatiness taking centre stage, but there's still a touch of marzipan sweetness with burnt raisins hiding in the wings. As it sits in the glass, some comparatively lighter notes develop, with apple juice, apple sauce and warm leather car seats appearing, along with spiced pastry and red berry compote.

    • Palate

      Sweeter and oilier than expected from the nose, with a thick mouthfeel joined by butter icing, marzipan and candied apple. Spice builds, with clove and cinnamon giving a gentle tingle, before rich raisins and sticky black liquorice take over. From there things go savoury, with wood smoke and the forest notes from the nose balanced by lingering dark chocolate.

    • Finish

      Spice and earthiness, with riverbank loam and green grass accompanied by black pepper. As the greenness hangs around, become sharp, before sweet liquorice builds and then fades, leaving a hint of anise and menthol.

    • Comment

      Dense, with a lot to get through. It's a dram you can spend a very long time on, and you will be well rewarded if you do. It has layers of flavour, going from the weighty to the very weighty, with a gentle seem of smoke running through the middle. You don't often get to try a whisky of this old-school style, and it's always a treat when you do.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      So much going on here: fruity sweets interlaced with chewing gum, a slightly resinous note and roasted chestnuts. Sweet fudge and char from the oak, as well as freshly trodden forest leaves. Bright and engaging; not heavy. A fine (and expensive) pair of leather shoes laid to dry near an open fire.

    • Palate

      Touch of woodsmoke. Almonds and hazelnuts roasted over the fire. Nice spiciness – cloves and nutmeg – with fresh fruity notes of greengage and pear, as well as more serious, darker notes of wooden bookshelves and old leather. Some dark chocolate gateau present, too, and espresso.

    • Finish

      The spicy nuttiness takes hold, gradually fading with sweet spice and dark chocolate.

    • Comment

      A complex dram, at turns playful and sweet then dark and mysterious. Would work brilliantly after dinner with some dark chocolate or rich truffles.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Colour

      Chestnut.

    • Nose

      Rich and complex, intense phenolic sherry aromas. Sooty smokiness, fragrant wood, toffee apple, briny with some sweet biscuit maltiness.

    • Palate

      Quite dry evolving to a rich smoky oloroso sherry character. Massive complex layers of dark chocolate, coffee and cherry liqueurs. Extremely smooth, well balanced with spicy ginger and black peppercorn overtones.

    • Finish

      Dry, smooth and spicy, satisfying and very long with a salty smoky tail.
