Ledaig (pronounced "let-chig") is the peated expression of the Tobermory distillery, the only distillery on the island of Mull off the coast of the Scottish Highlands. It is owned by Burn Stewart Distillers who also own Bunnahabhain and Deanston.

The unpeated whisky from this distillery is called Tobermory, with the name 'Ledaig' reserved for the peated expressions. The peat phenol content is quite high with about 30-40ppm. This can be said to make it more peaty than Bowmore, but less than Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig.

This bottling is a young expression and has been awarded 88.5 points by one whisky drinker. It is creamy and oily and profoundly peaty.
