A Ledaig 10 year is the third bottling of Stillness: a concept inspired by the polysemy of the word STILL. It's a frame, taken on analog during our last trip to Scotland, it's an introspective moment of peace and serenity, it's an alembic, where form becomes substance.
A peated Single Malt Scotch Whiskey from the Tobermory distillery, on the wonderful Isle of Mull. Matured in an ex-bourbon barrel, it was bottled at 54.8%. Not cold filtered and without the addition of colorants, available in only 120 bottles.
The label features a still of an aerial view of Oban, where ferries depart for the Isle of Mull.
Nose: It feels like breathing the sea. Salty with hints of seaweed, smoke and oysters. Slightly citrus notes. Fantastic.
Palate: First you are overwhelmed by the peat, then the ex-bourbon barrel comes out. Sweet, oily and savory.
Finish: Persistent, with hints of smoke, lemon and vanilla.
