Douglas Laing Old Particular Ledaig 1993 (distilled at Tobermory), 50.9%

Price: $185 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This 21 year old from Tobermory is of the peated Ledaig variety, though sampling confirms that the level of peating in Ledaig malt has been significantly ramped up since this was produced. Sweet on the nose, with subtle aromatic smoke, unsalted butter, peaches in syrup, and heather honey. Luscious and viscous on the sweet, fruity palate, with honey, underlying soft spices, and some gentle smoke. Slowly drying in the finish to licorice root and black coffee.£110
