Winning bid: £150.00
Lot number: 083-5369

First produced in 1971 when the Tobermory distillery was reopened after more than 40 years of silence. For a while all spirit produced was peated and called Ledaig. This changed soon enough and it became the name given to the peated malt produced at this distillery. It is only now becoming widely available as a single malt due to renewed investment and promotion by its owners. Pronounced Led-Chig which means Safe Haven in Gaelic.

An unusual expression from Tobermory. This Ledaig has been finished in Spanish Sherry oak casks giving the whisky a noticeably sherried complexion. These releases come in a few forms both of Ledaig and Tobermory available only at the distillery.

Age: 16 Years Old

Cask Type: Spanish Sherry Cask finish

57.2% ABV / 70cl

Please note the slight tear to cardboard box. The bottle also bears the signature of the master distiller, confirming this is a single cask bottling!

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
