Ledaig is produced by Burn Stewart Distillers, a company conceived in 1988 with a vision to create a fully integrated Scotch Whisky company and to build a portfolio of international brands. In 1991 Burn Stewart achieved a listing on the London Stock Exchange and soon after acquired the Tobermory Distillery - the only distillery on the picturesque Hebridean Isle of Mull. It is here that Ledaig is produced. (The name is pronounced 'Led-chig' and translates to 'safe-haven' from the Gaelic tongue, aptly named after the area in which the distillery sits.)

Tasting notes:
There’s no age statement, but the whisky is less than 10 years old—and is a little green. Notes of toffee almonds, ripe fruit, freshly-ground pepper, chorizo, bacon fat, and damp peat smoke. Lingering smoke and brine on the finish. A few more years of maturation should improve this whisky significantly. 42% Alc./Vol Rating: 79 points - www.maltadvocate.com (3rd Quarter 2006 Issue-Vol. 15#3)

Other reviews...Nose: Oaky at start then fruity notes. Pinewood forest. Humus, bracken. Dates and apricots. Marmalade. Biscuity notes. Madeira cake. Toffee. Palate: Velvety and round. Sweet fruit. Blancmange. Stem ginger. With water, becomes herbal and malty. Finish: Medium, nutty with soft spices. Liquorice. Comment: Quite a rich and complex malt. Needs a long aeration to release it all. Rating: 77 points
