Heroes & Heretics Smoke & Glory Ledaig 13yo 53% 70cl
Heroes & Heretics are an independent bottling company sourcing casks from around the world, trying to find the most interesting and exciting liquid out there, with a focus on historical facts and figures to create an interesting backstory.
Ledaig is the original Scottish Gaelic name (meaning 'Safe Haven' for what is now known as the Tobermory Distillery on the Northern coast of the Isle of Mull. Owners Burn Stewart decided to use the name from 2007 as the branding for any heavily peated expression released there. In my view Ledaig is one of the most underrated heavily peated whiskies out there - it's consistently excellent with a distinct smoked meat note that is unlike classic Islay or other Island bottlings.
There are only 276 bottles available from this single cask release, which spent 13 years in a first-fill Bourbon hogshead. The influence of that cask is clear, with a lovely vanilla sweetness underscoring the classic Ledaig notes of bacon and sausages smoked on the BBQ. There's also a distinct maritime saltiness, which brings to mind enjoying those BBQ smoked meats on a beach during a warm summer's evening. It's an incredibly evocative whisky that brings to mind a very specific time and place - something which not many spirits manage to achieve and really makes those that do stand out.
