Tasting Notes by Eye-lah-Guy
A pure sister to Ledaig (the original distillery moniker, now a smaller and “peated” version of Tobermory), Tobermory is Ledaig without the leathery peat of the Isle of Mull. A unique if not entirely memorable experience, both are worth visiting for their quality and singular destinations
Sweet praline followed by buttery caramel and clean malt, with an onslaught of toasted barley and oak cask, smoky yet at once earthy, which diffuses the sweetness for a superior balance. Finish is subtle, warm, and satisfying, with bright accents of roasted malt, sparkling grain and the delicate reinstatement of the buttery nut, done with the predictable class of this excellent distillery.
