Warehouse 1: 2012 Ledaig Bourbon Barrel

Alcohol by Volume
62.5% ABV
Natural Colour
Chill Filtering
Non-Chill Filtered

One of the team’s favourites, this single cask whisky is really not one to miss.  Matured in Bourbon barrels, this 2012 Ledaig is packed full of flavour.  Tobacco, smoke and sea salt lead to a beautiful green tea finish and fresh chocolate mint – it’s an absolute belter!

Is this the best Ledaig single cask we have ever tasted? Olivier and the team at the distillery think that the spirits team of Stephen Woodcock, Master Distiller and Julieann Fernandez, Master Blender have unearthed a true classic. For the peat lovers out there this has to be tasted to be believed, (in our opinion).

Intense sea shore peat on the nose, sweet & savoury with aromatic sage, sweet vanilla notes. The peat explodes ‘Sherbet Fountain’ style in the mouth, clean with the impact of the cask strong in the vanilla notes. Tobacco, smoky, hint of sea salt.  A beautiful green tea finish, fresh chocolate mint, it’s an absolute belter!

Our hand filled Warehouse 1 whiskies:

These are single cask bottlings, very limited in number, selected by our Master Blender and our visitor team.  Once the cask is emptied, unfortunately it is never to be repeated!

Please note, this whisky is hand filled by our visitor team straight from the cask.  As the whisky is not filtered, you might find particles in the liquid, which are entirely natural from the whisky maturation process and the cask, e.g. pieces of charcoal from the charring of the cask.   

The whisky is sold as is and no refunds will be given as a result of this process.  In addition, we will not be responsible should the whisky be held in customs. 

Tasting Notes

Bright lemony gold
Sea shore peat, sweet & savoury
Sweet peat explosion, with a musty tobacco flavour and sea salt
Smoke, green tea and mint chocolate - wow!

Our distillery produces the Tobermory gin and two distinct single malts: a non-peated Tobermory and a heavily-peated Ledaig. The two malts are produced using the same stills, wash backs, mash tuns and the same process water but the two are totally different in character due to the malted barley used.
