Ledaig, meaning 'safe haven' in Gaelic, and pronounced “lea-chick”, is the name given to peated whiskies distilled at Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, an unusual combination that pairs the best parts of highland style distillation with the spicye, maratime peat style found among the better Island distilleries. The distilleries output is relatively small and their peated output even smaller so this one doesn't get the attention of its competitors but is starting to make waves, particularly among the single cask line ups.
