Ledaig OB/IB

Postby lockejn » Tue Mar 16, 2010 7:40 pm

I'm looking to purchase my first bottle of Ledaig. I usually try to start with an OB when sampling a new whisky, but people seem to have pretty strong feelings about the output of this distillery so I'm asking for advice.

Binny's carries these four bottlings in my price range:

Ledaig 10 OB 86% - $49.99
G&M 1994/12 92% - $54.99
G&M 1990/15 92% - $59.99
Signatory 1993/14 86% - $49.99

Anyone have any experience with / thoughts on any of these?

The numbers listed are proof rather than ABV. I meant to make the conversion, but got caught up in transcription. And they're listed online as being 46%, but in my experience this isn't always accurate. Could be about anything.

I'd start with the Ledaig OB and if you can find it the 10yo Tobermory (same distillery) and compare the two.

I've had the Tobermory 10 and enjoyed it. A shame it's not more readily available.
