Ledaig 10 Year Old - Provenance (Douglas Laing)
Provenance marks the first series in Douglas Laing and Co's Exceptional Single Casks Scotch Whisky journey. For Provenance, DLC bottle extraordinary Single Cask Single Malts from a vast range of Scotland’s Whisky Distilleries. Each bottling is offered to you “as natural as it gets” – at 46% alcohol strength or higher, and without colouring or chill-filtration. Casks tend to be refill which helps to highlight each distilleries unique spirit character.
From the Tobermory Distillery comes this smoky Ledaig single malt from a single cask (cask 14016). The peated whisky was distilled in 2009 and left in a single refill hogshead for a decade, until Douglas Laing bottled it for the Provenance series, with an outturn of 411 bottles. A wonderfully smoky, maritime whisky here.
"Distinctly maritime and oceanic with puffs of smoked meat and new leather. Fulsome with fried pancetta, sweet peat and smoked barley. Medium-long with seaweed, dark chocolate, gingers, rock salt and blueberries." CGL
Another great malt with sweet and peat in perfect harmony. Ledaig is a really sought after malt, for all the right reasons. Which is mainly it's conviction to be different. Ledaig malt is often barn-yardy and pongy, but somehow it works!
700mL. 46% VOL. From a single cask of 411 bottles.
