Tobermory Distillery is located at Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, a hebridean isle in western Scotland, north from the isle of Islay.
Production and character
The distillery was founded in 1823 in a former brewery, founded in 1797, by John Sinclair. This unpeated malt is part of the Islands subregion of the The Highlands. Its yeast and water are drawn from dark aromatic Isle of Mull peat lochans. The flavor is described as a light smoky nose, a medium dry profile with a smooth and fruity tang. The distillery also produces a smaller amount of peated whisky, Ledaig, which is also the original name of the distillery.
Tobermory was originally a vatted malt, but was produced as a single malt after reopening in 1990.
Tobermory is available in various proprietary bottlings as well as one of the ingredients of the Scottish Leader and Black Prince blends.
