Introducing the Tobermory 26-Year-Old Oloroso Cask Finish, a pinnacle of craftsmanship from the renowned Isle of Mull distillery. Originally crafted as their esteemed 'Tobermory 15 Year Old,' this exceptional spirit has undergone an additional 11 years of maturation in Oloroso casks, resulting in a truly exquisite sherried malt.

This distinguished expression offers a perfect harmony of spice and sweetness, tantalizing the palate with indulgent notes of vanilla, toffee, and freshly baked pastries. The journey concludes with a lingering woody finish, adorned with hints of chocolate-covered hazelnuts, leaving a lasting impression of sophistication.
Part of 'The Hebridean' series, this release marks the fourth expression out of five, joining the esteemed ranks of the 23, 24, and 25-year-old releases. Distilled and filled into whisky refill hogsheads on June 21, 1996, this liquid treasure was then transferred into Gonzales Byass supreme quality sherry casks on July 24, 2014, to enhance its depth and complexity.
Limited to just 4,560 bottles, this special release embodies the spirit of exclusivity and refinement. Each sip is a testament to the dedication and artistry of our distillers, ensuring an unparalleled drinking experience for discerning enthusiasts.
Inspired by the majestic white-tailed eagles of Mull, this expression pays homage to their resurgence, mirroring the spirit of resilience and natural beauty. Just as these magnificent birds have reclaimed their place in the skies, Tobermory 26-Year-Old Oloroso Cask Finish soars to new heights of excellence in the world of whisky.

 

Tobermory Distillery, nestled on the picturesque Isle of Mull off the west coast of Scotland, boasts a rich history dating back to its establishment in 1798. Situated in the charming fishing village of Tobermory, the distillery is renowned for its distinctive single-malt Scotch whiskies, each embodying the essence of its rugged island surroundings.

 

On the nose, delicate notes of dried fruits, raisins and figs, are intertwined with warm baking spices, including cinnamon and nutmeg. Subtle hints of orange zest add a citrusy brightness, while a gentle wisp of oak lingers in the background, a testament to its long ageing process.
The palate is enveloped in a velvety embrace of flavour. Sweetness and spice blend in perfect harmony, as rich caramel and toffee mingle with the warmth of cloves and ginger. The sherry influence comes through, imparting layers of dark chocolate and candied nuts, while a touch of vanilla adds a hint of sweetness.
On the finish dried fruits and oak linger on the palate, inviting another sip…

 

Serve a bowl of roasted almonds, hazelnuts, or pecans alongside your dram of Tobermory 26-year-old. The nuttiness of the whisky harmonizes with the toasted flavours of the nuts, while the sweetness of the sherry cask finish enhances their natural richness.
