Exclusive Malts Ledaig 8 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Only 300 bottles of this whisky, which was aged for 8 years and bottled at cask strength, were ever produced.
Situated along the Isle of Mull, the quaint village of Tobermory was founded in 1788 by fishermen who began using it as a resting place during their fishing expeditions in the Sound of Mull. The name Tobermory is derived from the ancient Gaelic word meaning "Mary's Well,"and refers to a nearby well on the Isle of Mull that was dedicated to the Virgin Mary centuries ago by Irish monks who lived on the island. In 1798 — just ten years after fishermen began using the port of Tobermory as a resting place — John Sinclair founded Tobermory Brewery and Distillery. Today, Tobermory Distillery is the last remaining distillery on the Isle of Mull and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. Ledaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a heavily peated single malt crafted at the Tobermory Distillery, and reflects the distillery's location in the Inner Hebrides archipelago. The whisky is made exclusively from Scottish barley that is dried directly over a peat flame. Once the grains have been dried, they are milled and mashed with water drawn from Mary's Well before being fermented for nearly four days in washbacks made of Oregon Pine. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled twice, first through one of Tobermory's copper-pot wash stills, and again through one of Tobermory's copper-pot spirit stills. The Exclusive Malts Ledaig 8 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled on November 8, 2005 and matured in a traditional oak cask (Cask No. 9) that was laid to rest in an ancient vault on the Isle of Mull. In March 2014 — after an eight year slumber — the whisky was bottled at cask strength. It has a bright, golden color with an aroma of smoke, salt and seaweed. Notes of fresh ocean air, mint chocolates and citrus dominate the palate, and lead to a finish accented by touches of tang. Only 300 bottles of this single malt have ever been produced.
