Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 52.4%
From the fair Isle of Mull comes Tobermory distillery's peated single malt whisky, Ledaig. Ledaig has so many followers nowadays you'd be forgiven for wondering if what used to be an amusing side project might actually be more popular than the standard Tobermory.
Anyway, idle speculation aside, let's get down to brass tacks: this 14 year old Ledaig 2006 has been bottled from a refill sherry butt by Douglas Laing in 2020, yielding 298 bottles at a very promising drinking strength of 52.4%. Lots of evaporation from that cask, they must have left it by the window - or maybe it was just popular with the warehousemen. Gah, more speculation! I can't help myself.
