Tobermory 10 or Ledaig 10?

Postby Bulkington » Fri Jul 25, 2008 9:45 pm

I want to get a bottle of one or the other. Recommendations?

Go for the Ledaig

I always get a bad rubber smell from the nose of Tobermory

I think Tobermory must be transported inside inner tubes. What is up with that stuff ?

Ledaig 10 almost everyday... I don't know what the difference of what Tobermory does to make the Ledaig vs. the standard Tob' 10. But I like the Ledaig better.

Cheers,

I went for the Ledaig before seeing these replies. Glad I did. It's good stuff. (And it seems like the Longrow CV bears more resemblance to it than to anything Islay.)

Don't.

Oh, too late...well, I'm glad you're happy with your choice.

Inner tubes! You want inner tubes? Have you ever had a Littlemill? That one ruined my drams for the rest of the evening. Pints of Landlord could not wash the taste away. Big finish, you might say!

I've had a dram of a pretty old Littlemill at the SMWS and that is my only experience with the distillery. Was ok - nothing I'm sure like the legendary nastiness served up in their name at younger ages.

Cheers,

Ledaig has more peat which tends to mask revolting aromas and flavours. :wink:

None. Get something good instead.

Get a quart of weedkiller instead of either. It may still cause you the same harm, but at least it will taste better!

Early results have found less venom in a bottle of Ledaig than in this thread.... :wink:
