Ledaig Sinclair Series Rioja Cask 70cl
This first expression in the Sinclair Series is inspired by the Spanish galleon which sank off the harbour of Tobermory more than 400 years ago.
Made with heavily peated barley before being matured in ex-bourbon casks, and finished in hand-selected Spanish Rioja casks, this single malt contains powerful flavours of smoke, spice, grape and sweet berries, with a lingering saltiness.
Cask Type: Bourbon & Rioja Cask
Nose: Notes of Turkish delight and rose petals balanced with candied fruits and grapes, followed by rich leather and a beautiful peppery spice. A hint of chocolate comes through at the back.
Taste: Creamy mouthfeel packed full of almonds, barley and sweet malt with notes of peppery Ledaig, which give way to black raspberries, sweet vanilla and cocoa interspersed with cinnamon spice and hints of freshly cut grass.
Finish: Lingering smoky finish with red fruit and sea spray.
