About the distillery

Tobermory distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery situated on the Hebridean island of Mull, Scotland in the village of Tobermory. The distillery which was formerly known as Ledaig, was founded in 1798 and has changed hands several times, having undergone a number of periods of closure.

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.

Pronunciation : "led-chig"

UNOFFICIAL TASTING NOTES:

COLOUR:
Straw yellow with a red tinge.


NOSE:
A nose of light fruit, think melon, cling peaches and a roundness of warm orange. Underneath there is a layer of maltiness and cornflakes and a soft sea breeze, like salted caramel and vanilla ice cream.  Later the depth of the bouquet is barleysugar – thick sweetness predominates.


PALATE:
Creamy and mouth filling, but with a very pronounced lightness.  The caramel returns with whispers of dark chocolate and a light sprinkling of salt.  The gingerbread spice is contained and restrained and the orange returns with a faint hint of strawberries and cream on the diminish.  There is oak and it is fresh, young and drying. Little cubeb pepper right at the end.


BODY:
Medium light and coats the mouth wonderfully.


FINISH:
Medium finish with a malty dryness and slight prickle of spice and leather.

IMPORTANT:

 - Cask storage fee will become payable by the buyer to Deanston (Distell International Limited) (currently £1.09 per week).

 - 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.
