Tobermory have never really subscribed to the NAS movement, preferring a combination of age statements and/or vintages for their whiskies. Their heavily peated whisky - Ledaig - reintroduced by the then owners Burn Stewart carried its most recent NAS badge way back in 2005. But, since then the brand has certainly gained traction, momentum and a steadily building number of fans. It’s not a whisky that everyone gets along with – indeed, it’s highly idiosyncratic – mixing up the aromas and flavours of BBQ meats, burnt rubber and sweet fruits. This doesn’t sound like it should work – but more often than not it does. Whilst whisky enthusiasts are currently spoilt for choice, there’s an abundance of very similar profiles out there - if you’re looking for something unique, look no further than Ledaig.
