Rest & Be Thankful Ledaig 2007

Regular price $205.00

The name Rest & Be Thankful comes from the inscription on a stone made by soldiers who built a military road in 1753 in the West coast of Scotland; the road out of Glen Croe was so long and so steep that it was traditional for travellers to rest at the top and be thankful for having reached the highest point. There can be few roads in Scotland so well documented by travellers over the centuries or so affectionately named as the Rest. In the beginning of course, there was no road at all. There was just a track, a path made by generations of travellers, and beaten out by herds of black cattle being taken by drovers from Argyll to the trysts and cattle markets of the Lowlands. Ledaig, Tobermory’s peated expression, hails from the only distillery on the Isle of Mull. Although the modern incarnation of the brand did not resurface until 2007, its history dates all the way back to 1798. Bottled in 2019 after 11 years in a sherry cask, this heavily peated, cask-strength whisky packs a punch while simultaneously striking a lovely balance between smoky peat and rich sherry.
