After first maturing in Bourbon casks before being transferred to a Manzanilla sherry cask, this whisky is sweet fruit, floral and gingerbread notes balanced by clove oil and a lingering sea salt


  • Clear

Our oldest cask which we have been able to enjoy with visitors at the distillery. A late spring distillation in 1995, the spirit was matured in bourbon casks for 14 years and transferred to the dry, sweet Manzanilla sherry cask where it currently rests maturing in Warehouse 1.

A beautifully sophisticated spirit after a long time in the American and European oak. The sherry influence is there, citrus, dark chocolate, almonds the Atlantic coast of Sanlúcar de Barrameda meets the Sound of Mull with hints of sea salt throughout the whisky? The floral finish will be familiar with Tobermory followers, a whisky to be enjoyed with friends.

Our hand filled Warehouse 1 whiskies:

These are single cask bottlings, very limited in number, selected by our Master Blender and our visitor team.  Once the cask is emptied, unfortunately it is never to be repeated!

Please note, this whisky is hand filled by our visitor team straight from the cask.  As the whisky is not filtered, you might find particles in the liquid, which are entirely natural from the whisky maturation process and the cask, e.g. pieces of charcoal from the charring of the cask.   

The whisky is sold as is and no refunds will be given as a result of this process.  In addition, we will not be responsible should the whisky be held in customs.

Our distillery produces the Tobermory gin and two distinct single malts: a non-peated Tobermory and a heavily-peated Ledaig. The two malts are produced using the same stills, wash backs, mash tuns and the same process water but the two are totally different in character due to the malted barley used.
