Limited edition vintag opt

Tobermory Distillery has announced the release of Ledaig 1996, a limited edition Vintage Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The 20 Year Old single malt has an ABV of 46.3% and has been created from some of the first spirit distilled, when peated single malt production started, at the Isle of Mull site in 1996.

The malt’s flavour has been produced from peat-dried malted barley and peat infused water from the distillery’s own water source. The company describe the flavour as smoky, having been matured in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks. They say the distilling process also gives it scents of apple and mint citrus.

Alison Gibb, Global Marketing Manager – Malts Portfolio at Distell, said,“True to its heritage Ledaig 1996 is a traditional, un-chill filtered malt ensuring our whisky lovers enjoy an authentic spirit on the palette. This wonderfully peated single malt from our Tobermory Distillery reflects the rich past of what is one of the oldest commercial distilleries still in operation.”
