Ledaig 2007-2015, 8yo, 52.3% – Beacon Spirits

It’s with shame that I start this review. I got this sample from Bert Dexters, of Beacon Spirits, years ago and have completely missed it in reviewing. My sincere apologies, Bert. A young Ledaig as we have seen quite regularly … Continue reading

Ledaig 11, 2009-2020, 54.4% – The Whisky Kingdom

Yet another bottling for the German ‘Wu Dram Clan’. I guess Wu Dram is striving to be forever. This time it’s a Ledaig, or peated Tobermory if you will, from a bourbon hogshead. I was a bit apprehensive about it … Continue reading

BTC #14: Ledaig 11, 2005-2017, 58.6% – Signatory

Yes! Another zero pointer! I’m getting back to my usual self, apparently. Also, my Peatometer is broken. Or I’m having more of a cold than I though. Or my sample was weird. I don’t really think I can blame things … Continue reading

BTC Sample 18: Tobermory 20, 1995-2015, 54.7%, Rest & Be Thankful

This Rest & Be Thankful brand is a bit of a strange one. When they started bottling two years ago they got things riled up with some hugely overpriced Octomores. If I remember correctly those were twice as expensive as the … Continue reading
