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 and is the only peated expression made at Tobermory Distillery. It’s 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.

Travis
Travis,
I enjoy heavily peaty flavors in the cold, winter months. This is on my shelf during that time of the year. It has a remarkable sweet finish that smooths out the spicy essence.

Lovely smoky flavour, peaty without tasting like dirt. Easy drinking as far as scotch goes.

Kegan,
Smokey and Peaty right in your face. Lovely, flavours great whisky for the price. Not Islay, but Islay's first cousin for sure.
