About This Tobermory Single Malt
The s-shaped stills at Tobermory are the key to their superb whisky. The necks of these s-shaped stills create reflux and underlying lightness. Distillery manager Ian MacMillian, who also manages the Deanston Distillery, has kept a watchful eye on this whisky. The underlying lighter spirit has spent 23 years in Sherry. This whisky is exceptionally dynamic, keeping the light mossy character from the new make and picking up the rich sweetness of the raisins from the sherry cask. This a unique and special combination.
