Tobermory 15 year old Unfiltered Island Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
*Highly Recommended* Fragrances of butterscotch, brown butter, toffee, dried pears and apple, as well as salt and old oak notes. Palate entry is toffee and butterscotch laden; midpalate is concentrated, toasty, buttermilk-like and full-weighted. Ends up heavily in the marzipan/light caramel/toffee "sweet zone" which, while not for everyone, works for me.
Tobermory 15 Year has the prestigious distinction of being the only single malt ditillery on the Isle of Mull, 70 miles north of Islay on Scotland's west coast. The name Tobermory is a Gaelic word meaning "well of Mary." The distillery was built in 1798 in an area known as "Ledaig" (pronounced "Lechig") which means "safe heaven." This new release is produced from Scottish unpeated malted barley, un-chill filtered, natural colour and 46.3% alc/vol.
