Two new special fillings were released by the Tobermory Distillery on the Scottish island of Mull. The Tobermory 18 years and the Tobermory 20 years are an integral part of the opening of a six-part collection of six whiskies, to be released over the coming two years.

This rare limited edition, 20 year old Spanish Sherry Cask, is a big sherry bomb and incredibly complex.  It has spent almost half it’s life in a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask. Non chill filtered and natural colour.

“Rich and full bodied. The sherry notes are very prominent still, although a bit more sugary now. Lots of fruit. Ginger flavored honey”

“Very long finish. Warm, fruity and sugary. Some white pepper adds a mild spiciness” (whiskysaga.com)
