Tobermory 10 Year Old Malt Whisky
For those fortunate enough to uncover it, here lies a gem of a whisky. The Tobermory 10yo is exquisitely handcrafted single malt from the magical isle’s only distillery.
The name Tobermory is derived from the Gaelic "Tobar Mhoire", which means "Well of Mary", and relates to the well and chapel of St. Mary. Tobermory Distillery is one of Scotland's oldest operational Malt Whisky distilleries and celebrated its 200th anniversary in 1998.
Although Burn Stewart did not purchase it until 1993, the distillery was fully established in 1823.The distillery was purchased by Burn Stewart in 1993, at which point the company invested in a major upgrade to enable long term malt whisky production at Tobermory.
Today Tobermory distillery produces two different single malts, Tobermory and Ledaig. The Tobermory malt is lighter than the peated Ledaig, from the same distillery; the ten-year-old Tobermory has nuttiness with a touch of toffee.
Tobermory 10 year old has evolved with a new look and taste, reinforcing the premium quality and heritage of the brand. By not chill filtering the whisky, and with a strength of 46.3%, it ensures that you can appreciate the full depth of flavours, aromas and character of this fine malt whisky. It is an ideal strength to dilute to your own taste. You may expect a wonderful cloudy haze when adding water. This is completely natural and with no caramel added you will taste whisky as natural as it can be – just as it should be.
A world-renowned single malt as unique as this deserves to be held in a bottle with real character. The specially selected glass proudly embraces the past; paying homage to the distinctive old green bottle and referencing some of the qualities of the historic Tobermory packaging. The bottle is presented in a quality gift carton.
