Tobermory / Claxtons

Ledaig 2008 10 Year Old (Claxtons) Review

Ledaig 2008 10 Year Old (Claxtons) Ledaig, or heavily peated Tobermory, is one of those really popular drams amongst whisky enthusiasts who know that it might have a dirty funk, but that it works so well with peat and sweet! This dram was tasted as part of a tweet tasting featuring drams from the Claxtons independant bottlers.

Smoky, dirty, fruity, seafood, saline, salt water taffies, this has it all going on and is just one of those really enjoyable drams that needs everyone to have tried.

Ledaig is one dram that is growing on me more and more, and i really do love having a dram of this when it's cold, wet and horrible outside, it takes me to the seaside and into a world of calm, this is very much worth the money and should be on your drinking shelf.

Available from Specialists like Master of Malt.

Thanks to The Whisky Wire for including me in this tweet tasting.

Nose

Bosh and there it is that sweet, juicy saline smoky dirty note that i love from ledaig, fruit wrapped smoked seafood sticks, lemongrass, strawberry cables, serious inviting.

Palate

Sweet, salty, tingly pepper, salt water taffees, those weird crushed fruit wrap things, wrapped around a seafood stick, tasty, weird and seriously enjoyable.

Finish

Sweet, salty, yum
