the early 1970s were a time when Ledaig had seen one of the frequent re-openings and changes of owner.
The name in 1972 really was Ledaig for the whole distillery Tobermory it was named after the next closure I think.
So 1972 being a year of first production saw very heavily peated malts from Ledaig.
I have read a comment I think it was from Serge Valentine of http://www.whiskyfun.com
that in his opinion the 1972 Ledaigs can be compared to 1972 Clynelishs and from Serge this would be high praise indeed as his all time favourites are Broras.
But I think that the glory did not last for long as the peatiness was reduced soon after the opening in 1972 or thereabouts.
But I am sure that this 1974 Ledaig will behave well in your glass.
