The only distillery on Mull, it is currently owned by Burn Stewart Distillers, a subsidiary of Distell Group Limited of South Africa. Its main product, Tobermory single malt, is used in the blends Scottish Leader and Black Bottle. The distillery also produces a smaller amount of peated whisky, which remains known under the former name, Ledaig.

Other Information

 - Original bulk 499 litres | Original Strength 63.5% | 317 litres of alcohol

 - New bulk 400 litres | New strength 51.1% ABV | 205.2 litres of alcohol

This would currently yield approximately 571 x 70cl bottles of 28 Year Old Tobermory whisky.

Please note the sample is shown for confirmation of the colour only and is not included in the sale (it has been consumed to populate tasting notes!).

UNOFFICIAL TASTING NOTES:

COLOUR:
Reddish gold with mahogany tinge.


NOSE:
On the nose this is vegetal and mineral, with a faint hint of the sea.  Initially it is soft and sweet, but underneath there is damp forest depth with snapped fresh rhubarb with a mere hint of dill pickled cucumber.  Finally there is a waft of gentle wood and spice.


PALATE:
The woody spice tempered with aged orange burst onto the palate, underscored with a sprinkle of white pepper and sea salt with some pickle on the side.  The balance holds everything in check and then deeper there are layers of herbal notes, sugar, and ripening apricot.  On the dry down the spice reemerges along with deliciously drying oak and vanilla.


BODY:
Great texture: oily, smooth and silken.


FINISH:
Medium finish that is softer than the nose initially suggested, with lasting complexity.

IMPORTANT:

 - Cask storage fee will become payable by the buyer to Deanston (Distell International Limited).

 - The buyer will also be liable for a one-off £30 ownership transfer fee payable to Deanston (Distell International Limited). 

 - Legal ownership of the cask will be transferred to the buyer once payment has been received by Whisky Hammer.  Funds will be held by Whisky Hammer until the buyer is in legal receipt of the cask ownership to protect the buyer's transaction.  

 - Ownership of this cask is auctioned in bond.  The buyer will be responsible for any costs relating to removing the cask from bond in the future (i.e UK excise duty / VAT) as well as any other costs associated with cask movement and bottling.

 - Non-UK buyers must appoint a duty representative to act on his/her behalf for transfer of ownership of the cask (Whisky Hammer can assist in finding a UK representative if required).  The duty representative will need to be registered with HMRC and will normally charge an annual fee for the service.

 - Please note if the new owner is a UK revenue trader (business), they will need to be registered with HMRC and hold a WOWGR certificate.
