Ledaig 9 Years Old 2010 Sherry Butt Spirit Shop Selection Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
SKU code: 12200_700ml
This is a 9 year old release from the Tobermory distillery. Distilled in 2010, matured in a sherry butt and bottled at 58.9% Abv, it comes as part of a collaboration between the bottler Spirit Shop in Taiwan and Sansibar from Germany.
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.
