Words from Michael Jackson :
If the art of distillation was brought form Ireland over the Giants Causeway, it must have arrived on
Mull. The island's distillery traces its history to 1798, but it has operated only sporadically. In 1990, it reopened after a decade's silence, and later began to welcome visitors. It was acquired by Burn Stewart in 1993, Over the years, it has continued to market a product called Tobermory, The Malt Scotch Whisky. This is a vatted malt, containing some Tobermory whiskies of up to 20 years old and proportions of younger whiskies front elsewhere. It has also marketed a blended Scotch, clearly identified, on the label.
The distillery, in the town of Tobermory, was in the past known as Ledaig. Single malt whisky from the distiller): has been bottled under that name by several independents. The Ledaig bottlings have a distinct island character. How strongly the island character will survive in the future is open to question. The water used by the distillery is very peaty, but the malt now being employed is unpeated. The new owners want to sell their new make for blending and they feel there
is little demand in that department for heavily peated whiskies.

House style Faint peat, minty, sweet. Restorative.
