About this deal

Sweet briny smokiness with distinct island character and playful notes that hint at mild antiseptic, creosote, wax polish, mint chocolate and floral seaside aromas. With water, a floral aroma with a real presence of pear in the tasting, followed by the same smokey savoury finish. It occupies a real niche between the less robust Islay malts and Talisker with the oiliness and body of Springbank or Longrow. Another well made SIngle Cask Ledaig from Elixir Distiller's under The Single Malts of SAcotland range.

For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. Peaty whisky from Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, named after a previous incarnation of the distillery. We carefully select every single cask, and bottle at cask strength, always keeping the liquid its natural colour and with no chill filtration. This new release is part of the 'Sinclair Series' with the initial maturation in ex-Bourbon barrels, following further time spent in Spanish ex-Rioja wine barrels.

This first expression has been finished in hand selected Rioja casks in honour of the Spanish treasure buried deep off our shoreline.
