From the Whisky Bar: Tobermory 15 Year Old Malt

I am generally not a fan of island whiskies but after enjoying a few drams of my father’s favourite malt for his birthday on Monday, it appears that I have been slightly hard on Tobermory 15 year old. The whisky produced there is popular with blenders; as a result only about 15% of Tobermory’s whisky is released as single malt. Tobermory was founded in 1798 by John Sinclair and its original name was Ledaig ( ‘safe harbour’ in Gaelic).
Tasting Notes:
Nose: Orange zest, slight smoke, perhaps leather.
Palate: Pepper and spice, slightly creamy.
Finish: short with a touch of sea air.
