Distilled in 2011 at Tobermory distillery, this seven-year-old Ledaig single malt has been finished in a Bordeaux wine cask before being bottled by Signatory Vintage in August 2019, exclusively for The Whisky Exchange's 20th Anniversary.Tasting Notes (1)
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Lime and orange peel lead, muddled with a handful of black peppercorns and spicily fragrant. Damp peat smoke follows, with hints of classic Ledaig black rubber and sweet mezcal-like spirit. Sweet and earthy notes build, with sultanas and plump raisins following. Salted caramel, with lots of salt, hides at the back.
Softer, sweeter and rounder than the nose suggested, with white chocolate alongside sweet peat and barbecued bacon. The peppery notes from the nose burst through the middle, with dark earth and liquorice notes following. Gravel, ferns and raisins develop – green, mineral-rich and fruity.
Fruit leads: grapes, apples and pears. Liquorice follows, wit more apples and barley sugar building as it fades.
Sweet and peat – the cask has had a very different effect to that which I expected, adding a sweet grape notes to a chunky Ledaig. A wine cask I can get behind.

Delicious whisky. Young and fresh. Highly reminiscent of Lagavulin 12, though perhaps not quite as unctuous. For me, dirty on the nose (but lovely). And on the palate, apples, pears, salt, barley sugar.
