Distilled at The Tobermory Distillery in June 1995. Bottled in Glasgow March 2008. Aged 12 years old in American oak. Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring. Bottled at 46.0% Alcohol by volume
The subtle maritime influence of sea salt and campfire embers are not overpowered by the lovely sweet sherry notes. With a hint of figs, orange marmalade and rich fruit cake. The finish is softly spicy. Surprisingly well balanced and well worth trying.
Tobermory Distillery established in 1798 by John Sinclair a local merchant. It is situated at the northeastern end of the Island of Mull set in the attractive village of Tobermory home to the ancestral seat of Clan Maclaren. History has it a Spanish galleon, either the Florencia or the San Juan Sicillia while trying to escape the fleet of Elizabeth 1st after the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 exploded and sank 400 yards of the Tobermory Harbour. It is rumoured that the ship went down carrying a fortune in gold bullion. Each year treasure hunters come to the island in search of great treasure to no avail as the ship has never been found
