This solid Islander (and smoky big brother to Tobermory) is a nice alternative to the more familiar and aggressively peaty Islay whisky, but may still offend those with lighter tastes.

Subtle-sweet fruit followed by tangy vanilla extract and gentle smoky malt, with an underlying earthy peat not dominating, but backing the entire proceedings. Consequently, balance is impressive. Finish is warm and pleasantly honey sweet, with a horseradish-like blast, peat rising from ground level and fading into subtle seaweed and salty coastal shores. A singular whisky.

Reassuring review! I cannot wait to open mine... I tried a ledaig at a bar recently and the server said it was a 14 yr. Don't know if that's true or not but it made me go out and order the 10yo from the Liquor Control Board.
