Tobermory distillery is the sole distillery on the Hebridean island of Mull. It used to be called Ledaig, and they produce two ranges of whisky, the peated Ledaig expressions and the lighter, unpeated Tobermory exp
ressions. Much of the production goes into BlackBottle blend, but Tobermory has three official bottlings: this ten year old; the sherry cask aged fifteen year old; and a ten year old Ledaig. In
2011 owner Burn Stewart relaunched all three at 46.3% abv and unchillfiltered. This gives it more bite and depth and has, in our opinion, improved it immensely.
