Description

For our Winter 2020 Ink Loyalty release we have selected Ledaig 2008 Marsala Finish, 12 years old. As we head into the depths of winter what better than for sweet peat smoke to keep away the chills.

Our Ledaig releases have quietly building a strong reputation amongst peated whisky fans, with its clean, sweet barely sugar, citrus and intense smoke flavours. Our Winter Ink release has been resting in the dry/sweet Italian fortified Marsala wine casks for two years which has elevated its character to another level.

The sea shore peat smoke balanced with walnuts, sweet fruit pastries, butterscotch and an underlying lemon citrus.  Bottled at cask strength, and natural colour, our Master Blender has chosen these casks specially for the second release for our Ink members, which has been hand bottled by the team at the distillery.
