Inspired by the founder of Tobermory Distillery, John Sinclair, the Sinclair Series celebrates the heritage and creative approach to distilling.
This first expression from the series sees the smoky Ledaig signature expression finished in hand selected Rioja casks in honour of the Spanish treasure buried deep off the shoreline.
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.
Smoky yet sweet.
Nose - Notes of Turkish Delight and rose petals balanced with candied fruits and grapes followed by rich leather and a beautifully peppery spice. A hint of chocolate comes through at the back.
Palate - 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 a sea spray.
