    Distilled in 1972 and filled into various types of cask, In 2001 Ian MacMillan, the master blender for Ledaig transferred what liquid was left into high-quality Gonzales Byass oloroso sherry casks to add a further layer of flavour. After five years of close supervision, the casks were transferred back to Tobermory distillery. Ian has since claimed that this Ledaig is "the smokiest whisky of its age he has ever encountered." One of only 500 bottles and bottled at 46.3% volume.

    Tasting notes by Charles MacLean:

    Liquid treacle, with magenta lights - an astonishing colour! The first scent is of coal sacks in a wooden shed painted with faded creosote - I agree with Ian MacMillan: the smokiest whisky of its age I have even encountered. But the taste is more complex: sweeter than expected, with traces of sherry and dried fruits before the smoke kicks in, leaving a salty aftertaste.

    Situated on Scotland's picturesque west coast lies the island of Mull, the stunning location of the Tobermory distillery, and home to Ledaig. Undoubtedly one of Scotland's most beautiful and charming villages, it is a fitting home for one of the smallest and prettiest distilleries. Built in 1798, it is the only distillery on the island, and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. Quite unique to other distilleries, it produces two very distinct single malt Scotch Whiskies.
