Ledaig 15 Years Old 2005 Bourbon Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
SKU code: 13042_700ml
This is a 15 year old, peated release from the Tobermory distillery. Distilled in 2005, matured in a bourbon cask and bottled at 61.2% Abv, it comes from the German independent bottler Sansibar.
Located on the tiny Isle of Mull, home to just 3000 people, is the electric Tobermory distillery. Originally founded in 1798 as the Ledaig distillery, it changed hands many times throughout its lifetime before being acquired by South African group Distell in 2013. It is the only distillery on the tiny island and is well known for its fruity yet maritime style of whisky, as well as its peated brand ‘Ledaig’, an honouring of the original distillery’s name. Distell utilises both the tobermory and Ledaig malts for its blends, being Black Bottle and Scottish Leader. Due to a lack of storage space, on the island of Mull, Tobermory whisky is distilled on the island before being transported to the Deanston distillery or Bunnahabhain distillery for storage.
Founded in Germany by renowned whisky collector Jens Drewitz, Sansibar Whisky has been supplying the Sansibar restaurant with many fine casks of both whisky and rum for years. Located on the Sylt island just between Germany and Denmark, the restaurant has become a hot retreat for those looking to experience the very best in food, wine and spirits. Jens hand picks almost every cask selected, often directly at the distilleries themselves, before bottling them under the Sansibar brand. Often collaborating with bottlers/importers across the globe, Drewitz has picked some of the worlds finest single casks of whisky and some of the rarest rums money can buy. Sansibar also acts as the importer and distributor of other bottling labels to Germany such as North star and Hidden Spirits.
