Smoke on the Island.
 
Tobermory distillery is situated on the Scottish island of Mull, in the village of Tobermory. The distillery, formerly known as Ledaig, is the only distillery on the island. It was founded in 1798 by John Sinclair, has changed hands several times and undergone a number of closure periods.
 
These days the brand name ‘Ledaig’ is used for all their lightly peated malt Whisky, whereas the unpeated Whisky is sold as Tobermory. While most of the distilleries in the Island region mature their Whiskies on the islands themselves, Ledaig matures them on the Mainland.
 
The Ledaig 10 YO is distilled from peat dried Barley and has the strength of around 30-40 PPM. It is aged for 10 years in Oak Wood casks. The medicinal peat smokiness can easily put this Whisky beside the famous peaty Islay Drams. A fresh and vivid drop with just the right amount of smokiness.

Sinclair was only allowed to build a brewery, because his application for a distillery was rejected, due to the conservation of grain stores for the War of the First Coalition with France, between 1795 and 1797.
The old name 'Ledaig' means 'safe haven' in Gaelic.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Malt Whisky production in the distillery is split half and half, between the Tobermory and Ledaig single malts, according to the malt Whisky Yearbook.
