Tobermory - 15 Year Old 46.3%Limited 1798 Edition
Nose: A lovely sherried nose with notes of fig, orange marmalade, hints of leather and a touch of smoke.
Palate: Medium to full bodied. Rich sherry fruit cake, milk chocolate, creamy toffee, light oak, a hint of white pepper creating a lovely spicy tang.
Finish: Softly spicy, tingling with a nutty note, a hint of salt, lingering then gently fades.
Appearance: A tantalising natural colour of golden chestnuts.
Each drop of this rare and un-chillfiltered limited malt has been perfected using a dual-location-maturation process; first transferring the spirit into gloriously refined Gonzalez Byass Oloroso Sherry casks and then moving each cask from the mainland, where the whisky develops, back to the island for its final undisturbed year.
Its natural colour and high strength - at 46.3% - ensure that the essence of Tobermory authenticity is encapsulated in every bottle. Uniquely blown glassware is gift-boxed in fine dark-gold oak, with the bottle hand wrapped in a gift tissue wrap that illustrates Tobermory Bay - a commission by painter, Sonas Maclean. Final touches include a three-piece insert; historic photography with the Master Distiller's tasting notes and a gift card with bay imagery. Like everything about this gem of a whisky, this is one to be treasured.
