Tobermory 10 Year Old, Delightfully enticing, smooth and velvety, our 10 year old hand-crafted signature unpeated expression is one of outstanding finesse.
Tobermory’s world-renowned 10 year old has evolved with stunning new depth. Matured for 10 years in ex-bourbon casks, the slight peat influence of our water gives a unique character to the smooth notes of fruit and spice. Our new bottling proudly embraces the past, paying homage to the historic Tobermory green glass and is presented in an elegant box.
Tobermory 10 Year Old based on the Isle of Mull is one of several distilleries founded in 1798 and was originally founded under the name of Ledaig. Now, the distillery uses the name Tobermory for its unpeated expressions and Ledaig for its heavily peated bottlings. The Tobermory core range is a currently a compact three – 10 year old, 15 year old and 20 year old – though over the past couple of years, a variety of different cask maturations and finishes have been used for a selection of limited edition Tobermory’s.
The entry-level 10 year old was originally bottled at 40% ABV, until owners Burn Stewart (who were bought by Distell in 2013) upped the alcohol content of all their single malts (Tobermory, Bunnahabhain and Deanston) to a more impactful 46.3%. Rumours are abound that the 10 year old is currently on hiatus or limited production until stocks have replenished in a couple of years – indeed, several of the larger retailers are currently showing the bottling as sold out. Nevertheless, you can still find it for sale for between £42-£49 from a variety of online outlets. Though if you’re buying it, just head over to the Tobermory website for the £42 price.
