Tobermory Distillery has announced the release of Tobermory 23 Year Old Oroloso Cask Finish (46.3% ABV).
One for specialist drinks retailers, the sherried single malt has an RSP of £320 and joins the distillery’s core range.
Originally a 15-year-old, Tobermory 23 Year Old has spent more time resting in Oloroso casks at the distillery to create an even more full-flavoured whisky.
The deep rose-gold sherried single malt has unique notes of vanilla, ripe oranges, toasted barley and fruitcake on the nose. With an obvious sherry influence on the palate, salted toffee, candied citrus and floral honey are also evident, all tied together with a caramelised walnuts and subtle salty finish.
To commemorate its time on the Isle of Mull, the distillery has collaborated with Mull Silver and Goldsmith on a one-of-a-kind sterling silver and gold quaich which will be auctioned alongside the new bottle in the coming months. Funds raised from the auction will go to The BEN – a Scottish hospitality charity that is seeing more demand for ever for its services as a result of Covid-19.
Julieann Fernandez, Master Blender at Tobermory Distillery, said: “Our team at the distillery have been working hard for many years on the return of this old friend, and we’re incredibly proud to be introducing whisky drinkers around the world this exciting addition to the core range.”
