Tobermory 1972-2005, 32 years old, Oloroso sherry cask finish, 49.5%

Somehow, it seems to be a legendary year for many a distillery. 1972. GlenDronach, Caperdonich, but also Ledaig and Tobermory. Ledaig 1972 is one of the ‘argument’ whiskies people mention when I state I generally don’t like Ledaig. I’ve never … Continue reading

Ledaig Dùsgadh 42yo, 1972-2015, 46.7%

I generally don’t like Ledaig, as I’ve said on multiple occasions before. I also generally don’t get samples of this caliber. Luckily, I was at our 25th Anniversary party of the Usquebaugh Society last weekend, and Ronald Zwartepoorte brought the … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition 4: Ledaig 8yo, 2005-2014, 53.3% – Whisky-Fässle

Ledaig 16yo, 1997-2013, 56.8% – Gordon and Macphail for The Whisky Exchange

Ledaig and Tobermory, a distillery that supposedly releases some kick-ass drams every now and then, but one that I’ve never fallen in love with. I’ve tried quite a lot of the young Ledaigs from a couple years ago and can’t … Continue reading

Tobermory 15yo, 46.3%, Limited Edition 2008

Ah, Tobermory. I have a weird relationship with that distillery. When I went to my first whisky tasting ever, in Den Bosch at Barrique, there was one which I thought absolutely sublime. I only ended up not buying it since … Continue reading
