The Ledaig 19 Year Old, is said to deliver a mouth-filling sweetness of berries and dark chocolate with a full peat explosion of black pepper and bonfire smoke.
Tobermory 21 Year Old (53.8% ABV) is an unpeated cask strength bottling, which has been finished in Manzanilla sherry casks.
The Tobermory 21 Year Old, is amber gold in colour and is said to deliver notes of citrus, dried fruits, rich oak and orange spice.
Situated on the coast of the Isle of Mull, Tobermory is the island’s only distillery, famed for producing two different single malts; its namesake - an unpeated whisky which is produced for six months of the year and Ledaig - a peated whisky which is produced for the rest of the year.
Commenting on the launch, Carina Gous from Distell’s Malts Portfolio, said: “True to its heritage, Tobermory produces traditional, unchill-filtered malts. The wonderfully peated Ledaig and the light, unpeated Tobermory edition reflects the rich past of what is one of the oldest commercial distilleries still in operation. The release of these fine Hebridean whiskies reinforces our commitment to our whisky lovers around the world to provide innovative and authentic, quality single malts.”
The Ledaig 19 Year Old and Tobermory 21 Year Old, will be available globally from next month, for the respective RRP’s of £125.00 and £130.00.
